This ancient Japanese art form seeks to create a living sculpture that transcends the beauty of nature. More than merely arranging flowers, ikebana often emphasizes other areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, focusing on shape, line, harmony, and balance. Instructor Junko Miura, acclaimed floral artist and a second- generation ikebana master, guides you through the basic principles as well as the moribana and nageire forms. $160 materials fee.
Florist knife, wire cutter, scissors, pruners, a camera, and a box or bag to carry home your work.
