Amorpha Youth Foundation presents Ikebana Sōgetsu Workshop with Oksana Shtyk, certified teacher of ikebana in Japan.
Ikebana is the traditional Japanese art of flower arrangement. The Japanese name 生け花 translates literally as ‘living flowers’ or ‘giving life to flowers’. This event aims to introduce more people in the local community to the philosophy and practices of Japanese culture by presenting its characteristic aesthetic. The Sōgetsu School of Ikebana is a 20-century contemporary style in the Japanese floral art associated with the name of its founder, Sōfu Teshigahara. Its distinctive feature is a considerable latitude to work with various materials to express the spirit of the moment.
We will prepare arrangments conveying the mood of upcoming New Year celebrations. Each participant will then design their own arrangement which they can keep and use to decorate their home.
