Ikebana Demonstration (Japanese Flower Arrangement)

June 7 @ 9:30 am 12:00 pm

Open to the public, free to attend

Join Austin Ikebana Group’s June event featuring Professor Vivian Miller. The theme will be “A Midsummer Daydream” to express the beauty of early summer in Central Texas.

The Format will be an ikebana jiyuka or freestyle arrangement in a vertical or slanting shape. Many forms of ikebana have rules about the placement and form of the arrangement. In freestyle, there are minimal rules. A freestyle arrangement intends to convey the arranger’s feelings.

This event is free to the public (adult only) as guest observers in person (no flower materials provided), or via Zoom. Please RSVP to austinikebanagroup@gmail.com.
