June - Ikebana Online Class Schedule
Join our weekly ikebana online class to take time out during your busy week to relax, learn new skills and make some beautiful arrangements for your home.
This June, our Ikebana Study Group will be looking at the following themes:
1. Minimal - practising arrangements with 1 branch, 1 flower - Week of 31st May - 6th June
The wonderful thing about ikebana is about making gorgeous arrangements with limited materials to really emphasise the beauty of the nature, and vase you are working with. In this class we will practise making arrangements with only two ingredients - one branch and one flower.
2. Basic technique - practising nageire skills - Week of 7th June to 13th June
Working with tall ceramic vases (nageire) - it's important to learn the basic ikebana skills in order to create fixings inside the vase that keeps your arrangement in place. Extra points for those who can make their arrangement in the vase, and then pick it up and move it, without any of the branches and flowers changing position. There is a true mastery to this skill.
3. Morimono - using fruits and vegetables in arrangements - Week of 14th June to 20th June
In Ikebana, we can enjoy making arrangements not just with traditional floral materials, but also with unconventional materials or other plant materials. In this class we will practise making arrangements with fruits and vegetables. Let's think outside the box and really peel back the layers of the fruits and vegetables to see them in a different perspective.
4. Celebrating the season and showcasing the nature of the time - Week of 21st to 27th June
It is always a pleasure to create ikebana arrangements using the best in season materials and bring some of the outside nature inside to enjoy. This class will focus on creating an arrangement that represents the season you are currently in.
5. Mass, Line & Colour - Week of 28th June to 4th July
This class will focus on the three design elements of Ikebana. Mass, Line & Colour. We will make arrangements with careful consideration about how we are using mass, line and colour in our arrangements.
