About the Event

Course Description 

Join Asae Takahashi, certified instructor and founder of HANADOJO, for an introduction to the history and art of Ikebana, an ancient form of Japanese floral art. Dating back at least 600 years, Ikebana is deeply rooted in an appreciation of nature and inspired by fluctuations in the natural world across the four seasons. Over the course of four weeks, we’ll explore the relationship between nature and lifestyle in ancient Japan, trace the history of the art form as a practice used among monks, and engage with the study of Ohara-style Ikebana—considered one of the most established schools of Ikebana in the world. Together, we’ll not only master fundamental techniques and create several arrangements, but also cultivate a meditative practice that can develop ethical awareness and a strong sense of inner power and wellbeing.

Upon completion of this course, participants may have the chance to receive an international certification at an additional cost.
