Welcome to the HANADOJO’s upcoming In-Person 4-series Ikebana journey
“Ohara school of Ikebana Introductory course Fall 2021”
IKEBANA, one of the most traditional artforms of Japan, represents “Appreciation of Nature” which is a unique and very sophisticated way to learn how to arrange flowers.
In this 4-series small group in-person course, we provide an opportunity for people of all levels to learn the Ohara style Ikebana which is one of the most established Ikebana institutions in the world (https://www.ohararyu.or.jp/english/index.html). Here, you will not only master the basic Ohara Ikebana techniques, but you will also learn how to associate nature into your everyday life. For those who seek to reach a higher level, we will introduce you to the Ohara curriculum and class card system where you can receive certifications from the headquarter in Tokyo.
Upon completion of this course, participants may have the chance to receive an international certification at an additional cost.
Just want to give it a try? Feel free to join us for any single class!
