May - 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 May, our Ikebana Study Group will be looking at the following themes:
1. Japanese Childrens Day Celebrations - Week of 3rd May - 9th May
The traditional flower to celebrate Boys Day, or now known as Childrens Day, is the Iris which is currently blooming in Japan. Let's create arrangements to celebrate this day.
2. Using one material only - simple arrangements for beautiful ceramic vases - Week of 10th May to 16th May
When you are working with gorgeous ceramic vases, sometimes simplicity is best to crate an arrangement that really features the ceramic vase. Let's practise making arrangements with only one material. Consider which vase you will be using so you can choose material that matches the colour.
3. Practising with Glass containers - Week of 17th May to 23rd May
Working with glass containers is very different in Ikebana to Western styled floristry. In Ikebana, it is important to consider how to use the glass and the water as a feature, and create a harmonious arrangement with the flowers and the vase. Let's practise making arrangements using only glass containers and see what kind of creative ideas we can come up with.
4. Tips & tricks for simple arrangements with jonquils, daffodils, irises - Week of 24th to 30th May
In this class, we will take a look at some of the traditional arrangements using jonquils, daffodils and irises and how we can make very beautiful simple arrangements using just one flower type only. Any vase is fine to practise in, we can try in Nageire, Moribana & glass as well.
