Is ikebana something for you?
If you want to slow down, be creative with flowers and enjoy nature, it certainly is.

Ikebana, often translated as Japanese Flower Arrranging, 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 :-).

Already hooked on ikebana, advanced or even teacher? This course helps you to grow faster in your creative journey and spreading the art of ikebana.

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

You will learn
  • To make simple and more advanced arrangements in step-by-step video classes.
  • About plants and match the arrangements with the four seasons.
  • To slow down and find peace in the beauty of a flower or even a crooked branch.
