ZEN with Flowers
Ikebana, often translated as Japanese Flower Arranging, is much more than flower arranging. It is a philosophy and life-style which helps you slow down, enjoy nature, and find your inner self, as well as developing creative skills and techniques to make beautiful living art. One could explain ikebana as "Zen with flowers", and with the advantage you don't have to sit still that long :-).
Ikebana.be - Anytime Everywhere
Many people lead a busy life, and not everybody has the time to follow regular classes at a fixed time and location. That is why I started Ikebana.be. The courses can be viewed also on mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, anytime and everywhere.
Already hooked on ikebana, advanced or even teacher? The classes in our school will help you to grow faster in your creative journey and spreading the art of ikebana.
Who is behind Ikebana.be?
Ilse Beunen, the founder of Ikebana.be, 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.
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.
We recommend our "Ikebana - a Journey" course.

"Continuing development is important and Ilse’s lessons have added an extra dimension to my ikebana studies. The topics are well presented with clear explanations, sharing tips and techniques – both informative and enjoyable."
