Be Mindful of Our Ikebana Workshop November 6
Mindful Ikebana
Bring your consciousness into the moment with a calming class on Mindful Ikebana: The Peaceful Art of Japanese Flower Arrangement on Sunday, November 6, from 2-4pm.

A centuries-old art form, ikebana focuses the mind and teaches the eye to identify beauty in the myriad details of the natural world. These flower arrangements are truly unique in both style and simplicity! 

You'll begin with a traditional arrangement, then photograph your creation. Next, transform the traditional work into a more creative contemporary ikebana piece. At the end of the session, you will have completed an arrangement to bring home.

Instructor Yuko Tiernan has many years of experience with ikebana, and her classes at Montalvo are always a hit! The $75 registration fee includes a kenzan (pin frog), a plastic vase, and all necessary flower materials. Click below to register before this session fills up!
