In this class, I use branches and leaves in combination with spring flowering bulbs for four ikebana arrangements. Although there are many species of flowering bulbs, I choose to arrange with well know and easy to get by spring bulb flowers like Tulips, Narcissus, and Ranunculus
What will you learn?
- Combining branches with spring flowering bulbs
- Matching colors of the living material and the vase.
- Making an original festive spring arrangement.
This is an excellent class to practice the basic Ikebana principles and techniques you have learned. Advanced Ikebana students will get insights and ideas to combine materials and how to use commonly used flowers in a new way.
Is this course for you?
Beginning and advanced students will find something interesting in this course.
Ilse Beunen is an Ikebana teacher for more than 20 years. She fell in love with Ikebana during her 11 years stay in Japan where she mastered the art of Sogetsu Ikebana. She shares her ikebana adventures and creations on her Facebook page with more than 14.000 followers, and in her weekly newsletter delivered to more than 4000 readers.
She is passionate about Ikebana and started an online course to spread ikebana teachings and philosophy, which is so much more than putting flowers in a vase. Currently, other teachers are following her international workshops and online courses.
Ilse is currently also the chairperson of the Sogetsu Ikebana Studygroup in Belgium and was recently awarded the Sogetsu 90th Anniversary Commemorative Overseas Akane Teshigahara Award for her studies and efforts to widen the knowledge of ikebana.
