Japanese Flower Arrangement) Class with Master of Ikebana Harumi-Sensho Maejima

Ikebana, one of the traditional arts of Japan, has been practiced for more than 600 years. It developed from the Buddhist ritual of offering flowers to the spirits of the dead. By the middle of the fifteenth century, with the emergence of the first classical styles, ikebana achieved the status of an art form independent of its religious origins, though it continued to retain strong symbolic and philosophical overtones. Beginning students of ikebana are generally first taught certain basic styles. The typical teaching method is to have the student achieve mastery by repeatedly practicing a given style with different floral and plant materials.
