Enjoy Ikebana, Japanese style flower art
You can learn the basic forms of ikebana flower arranging that you can do at home. The characteristic of my “experience” is that not only in the classroom but also after guests return to your home countries, you will be able to make various style of Ikebana without special tools flowers and Japanese containers. I will teach you such a technique.
◆ Price :JPY 6,000
◆ Time :11:00-13:00
◆ Guide :English, Japanese
◆ Location :Kyoto, Carta Hotel
we’ll start by going to a flower shop and choosing your favorite flowers.
Then we’ll go to the space for experience. I’ll tell you the history and concept of ikebana, techniques to keep the flower’s life long, and so on. Then we can begin the lesson, and you will make ikebana yourself.
Through Ikebana, I want you to experience the aesthetic sense of the Japanese, how to enjoy each season, and how to live the daily life of people in Japan.
Later, we’ll have fun talking about how to enjoy the four seasons in Japan with green tea and sweets. Please ask anything such as Japanese food and culture. If you do not mind, I would like you to tell me about your country, so I can get to know each other. I am looking forward to seeing you.
