What we'll do

Experience the beautiful simplicity of ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging. Here you will learn the basics and be able to create your own stunning flower arrangements to take home and enjoy. This registration option is for one class, but are taught in sessions of four classes. You may join us for all four classes for $140. Contact us to discuss your interests! Price includes the cost of flowers. For class you will need a needle point holder/kenzan/frog - the Ohara school of ikebana calls for a rectangular one (pictured). We have a few you can borrow, but you will need your own if you would like to enjoy your work at home. These can be bought in class for $25 the day of (check with us to make sure we have some) or search for them online - often they are found in thrift shops (just make sure the needles are still straight)! You will also need some floral scissors or gardening shears to use in class, some are available to borrow during class. To enjoy your work at home you will also need a flat vase (or bowl), we have some for use during class. Instructor Yuko Inoue Darcy was trained at the Ohara School of Ikebana Chicago Chapter.
