After a very busy first half of 2019 classes are up an running once again! Classes are held on Wednesday afternoons 3pm - 5.30pm and Wednesday evenings 7pm - 9.30pm. There is still space in these classes if those times suit you. However if Wednesdays aren’t great for you, fear not, more classes will be coming soon so let us know your ideal time and we can try to schedule a class that fits around your availability.


In exciting news Hanakuma Ikebana is now able to offer classes in Newtown, Sydney! These classes run once a fortnight and happen on a Sunday afternoon from 1:30pm - 4pm. A schedule will be published soon so register your interest on our contact page and we will keep you in the loop.


Canberra region classes and workshops are held at my home studio in Murrumbateman, NSW. The studio is quite close to Canberra and is only a 25 minute drive along the Barton Hwy from the northern side of the ACT through beautiful scenery of vineyards and small farms. Tea, coffee, water and biscuits are available to students at all classes and workshops, (though students with special dietary requirements are asked to please B.Y.O.). 

Sydney based classes are held in a stylish Newtown warehouse right in the centre of Sydney’s alternative end of town. It’s a convenient walk from Newtown train station and the area is also well serviced by buses. With numerous coffee houses, cafe’s, restaurants, fashion stores and florists nearby what’s not to like. A light refreshment is served at the begining of class to set a positive mood to make great ikebana.
