Glebe NSW 2037
Australia
When

Saturdays, 1pm to 3pm Saturday 23 July to Saturday 6 May 2023

Make stunning Japanese-style flower arrangements with Setsuko Yanagisawa, who has over fifteen years of experience in floristry, specialising in the ‘Ikebana’ technique.

Go behind the scenes at one of Sydney’s most renown floristry boutiques and make your own Ikebana arrangement. In the tranquil surrounds of her workshop, you'll be transported away into a place of bliss and peace. Class sizes are purposely kept small to keep the experience intimate, and to ensure that you get enough one on one attention and feedback.

You’ll learn about the fascinating history of Ikebana, which in Japan is one of the three classical arts of refinement. You'll get unique tips and secrets on how best to combine elements, shapes and textures to create a cohesive masterpiece, as well as the logistical foundations of how to secure the flowers and their stems, and more. Create your own floral arrangements with your new knowledge and skills, from the season's freshest blooms. Setsuko will guide you but also give you space to be creative. Discover the elegance of simplicity, how less can be more.

Take the flowers home with you. Practice and decorate your living space, or give someone a heartfelt gift. You will be amazed by what you’ll invent with your own two hands!
