Workshop - Flower Arranging: The Secret Language of Ikebana

Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arrangement, is considered an art form in its own right alongside painting and sculpture. It is a representation of the Japanese spiritual philosophy that stresses harmony between man and nature. What distinguishes ikebana from Western forms of flower arrangement is the heavy reliance on negative space to create an asymmetrical, lively composition. Under the instruction of Kathy Huang, participants will complete two arrangements to take home: one in the ikebana style and one in the free style. Influenced by her grandmothers, who were master gardeners in Asia, Kathy Huang has unique training in cut flower arrangements of the Japanese Ikebana style.  She has been inspired by her adventurous travels while living and working in the United States for the past 30 years and has studied under ikebana masters in Asia. Materials are provided.

Fee:  $40, materials included.  Registration closes August 29.  Call 843-740-5854.
