Commune with flowers and learn about the Japanese art of ikebana in this workshop. We will begin with a brief history overview of the art form, observe an ikebana demonstration illustrating basic principles and techniques, and then spend the majority of the time creating our own arrangements.

All supplies (scissors, vases, and flowers) are provided, and you will take your arrangements home with you.

This class is a perfect opportunity for anyone to start practicing the meditative art of ikebana and for Zen practitioners to learn a skill for altar care.

Fees for this workshop are $50 for members and $60 for non-members. Consider becoming a Supporting Member. Sangha members who volunteer to maintain Shobo-ji’s altar arrangements will receive a discount on the course fee. Contact office@newyorkzendo.org to inquire. ZSS Health Protocols apply.

About the Instructor:
Studying Sogetsu ikebana since 2015 with Mrs. Fumiko Allinder (a long-established teacher who learned directly from the founder of Sogetsu school Sofu Teshigahara) and with Christine Donck Guelton since 2023, Kristina finds solace in ikebana and loves sharing her appreciation of this timeless art.
