Ikebana Workshop: Japanese Flower Arranging with Frederica Marshall

Frederica Marshall of Deer Isle will teach a workshop in Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower-arranging. The beautiful art form of Ikebana was developed for the altars of Buddhist temples in China and Japan. It is based on concepts of spiritual and artistic principles. Frederica studied Ikenobo Ikebana in Japan. This is the oldest school of flower arranging.

Basic rules and philosophies will be taught, and everyone will take home a graceful composition to enjoy! This program is free and open to the public, but space is limited to 15 attendees, and advance registration is required using the form below. Attendees are requested to bring a container for their creation (ceramic, glass, or basket with glass jar in side), and small gardening scissors if you have them. Flowers will be provided.
