Less is more. We have heard this saying over and over again, but what does it mean in the world of floral design?

Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging. The name comes from the Japanese words 'ike', meaning alive and 'bana' meaning flower.
Principles of minimalism, shape and line, form, humanity, aesthetics, and balance are what makes an Ikebana arrangement.

Join us in an afternoon of relaxation and discovery as we create beautiful floral arrangements inspired by the elegant style of Ikebana. 

The workshop will be held at the Studio of Bloomen.

The details of the workshop are as follows:

No prior experience is required. This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to spend an afternoon picking up a new skill. Our workshops are fun and carefree with no pressure at all. The whole point is to slow down, be present and enjoy yourself.

The session is approximately 2 hours long and consists of the following:

Part 1: Creating a basic upright arrangement in a Suiban to understand the basic concepts and principles. 

Part 2: Creating a freestyle arrangement in a vase to take home. 

We will also discuss tips on flower selection, flower handling, care and conditioning.
