TRAILER: How to arrange in large and irregular vases?

At the beginning of your ikebana journey, you start with easy-to-use vases. But along the way, you gather vases with interesting and irregular shapes. It is more challenging to arrange in these vases, and the basic fixation techniques don't always work.

This module covers techniques to arrange in tsubo vases, irregular vases, and big pots. We will also learn how you can fixate heavy branches.

What will you get?

  • Detailed explanations and high-quality close-ups of techniques
  • In-depth answers to the why and how of the ikebana designs
  • Plenty of ideas for you or your students
  • +200 DIY videos to make simple and more advanced arrangements organized in thematic modules.
  • Learn about plants and match the arrangements with the four seasons.

Can I get certificates following your class?

If you want to get certificates or advance as a teacher, you will also need to follow classes with a licensed teacher. I can help you find one in your neighborhood. If you cannot find one, you are welcome at my international classes which I regularly organize.
