Ikebana Sogetsu Beginner Basic Slanting Style
February 17 @ 1:00 pm
Ikebana (ē-kĕ-bah-nah) is the ancient art of Japanese flower arranging and one of the traditional arts of Japan. A free translation of Ikebana might be “living flowers” or “making flowers come alive”. When flowers are beautifully arranged in a container, the arrangement evokes the whole of nature itself, and people’s relationship with nature.
Presented by Pound Ridge resident Roxane Wasserman. Roxane’s designs have won numerous blue ribbons and top NGC design awards at New York and Connecticut Flower Shows.
