Slow down, Grow and Be Creative with Flowers

By combining multiple in-depth teaching techniques, we guide people worldwide through their ikebana journey with online and in-person classes and workshops.

Ikebana, Japanese flower arranging, is more than just arranging flowers. It is a philosophy and lifestyle that helps you slow down, grow, and find inner peace by developing creative skills and techniques to make beautiful living art.

NEW - 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 learn?

You will not only learn how to create beautiful arrangements, but you will start on a journey.

  • Plenty of ideas for you or your students
  • Make simple and more advanced arrangements in step-by-step video classes.
  • Learn about plants and match the arrangements with the four seasons.
  • Slow down and find peace in the beauty of a flower or even a crooked branch.
  • Get inspired
