CLASSES FOR 2019

Hi there folks, with the success of classes that started in October of 2018, new blocks of classes will be running in 2019! The current classes are on a Monday afternoon from 3pm, there is still limited space in this class if that time suits you. However if a Monday isn’t great for you fear not, more classes will be coming soon and the plan is to schedule a class for either evening or for a time on the weekend. That way people that have a 9-5 work week will be able to come to a class that fits with their schedule. See below to express your interest.  

 

ABOUT STUDY WITH HANAKUMA IKEBANA

All 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.).

The into ikebana course offers a basic appreciation and understanding of the principles and tools of the Floral Art of Japan. You will enjoy demonstrations as well as try your hand at making a number of arrangements in both traditional sogetsu style and free style. Plant materials - flowers and branches, are included for the first part of the course but thereafter you will need to source and bring flowers, branches and other materials of your own choice. Vases for use in class will be provided with the exception of the class in which you may bring your own container. In classes you may make use of the tools that are provided or you may wish to purchase your own traditional ikebana tools (which will be available for sale during class). It should be noted that the purchase of tools is not a requirement.

At the conclusion of this course you will be well prepared to go on to further, formal studies in Ikebana if you wish. Alternatively you are welcome to sign up for casual sessions with informal guidance which is a great way to stay motivated and to continue to enjoy the wonderful art of Ikebana.
