Ikebana is the traditional Japanese art of flower arranging. However after learning history & watching my demo of traditional Ikebana,we’ll experience the modern one.Why will we use preserved flowers? We have the possibility of unlimited creations.The traditional Ikebana can’t live w/o water and you just cut and arrange. Ikebana has an element of craftwork, so you can create a larger variety of art. Preserved flowers are long-lasting so they will serve as a good gift and memory of traveling to the beautiful country of Japan. You’ll feel unconventional & original creating the preserved Ikebana. It makes me happy to think of guests looking @ their preserved Ikebana & remembering a wonderful experience in Japan. Soon, it will be your turn to tell to your family and friends about Ikebana. We were in residence area in Ogikubo (a little bit an adventure from Ogikubo station to my place) so moved to new place in KOENJI, where so exciting place about sub-culture ( just 3 min from KOENJI to my new place) If you are the one who want to know more depth of Tokyo and then it's the best time to hang out KOENJI!(from the end Aug 2018)
I’ve been teaching preserved flower arrangement for over 15years and I have more than 200 students. I’m also a master of Ikebana. As a representative of Japan, I want to show people from outside Japan how beautiful Ikebana is. I graduated from a US college, studied European style in London, and learned branding in Paris. I want to share how Ikebana mixes with everyone's originality.
