The Art of Ikebana
North Creek Presbyterian Church of Coconut Creek, FL invites you to attend the special presentation of the History and Introduction of the Japanese Art of Flower Arranging.
The art of Ikebana dates back to the 7th century. Flower arrangements were originally made for altars and later were place in homes. This skills has grown tremendously over the last centuries, now with over 1,000 schools in Japan and abroad.
Ikebana is more than putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form, where nature and humanity are brought together. Ikebana focuses on other areas of the plant. For example, Ikebana emphasizes shape, line, and form through the plant's leaves and stems.
Unlike traditional flower arranging, Ikebana has certain rules that govern its form expressing the artist's creativity. The artist implied meaning of the arrangement is found through the arrangement's color combinations, natural shapes, and graceful lines.
You won't want to miss the Ikebana class held at North Creek. This demonstration class is taught by professional Ikebana artists. They will walk you through the history of Ikebana, demonstrate how to arrange the plants, review the different styles of Ikebana, and answer any questions you may have. The arrangements made during the class by the speakers will go home with some blessed attendee! Everyone attending the class will go home with printed instructional materials to reference later.
When: Tuesday, February 27th @ 7 PM
Where: North Creek Fellowship Hall - 3601 NW 71st Place, Coconut Creek, FL, 33073
