Sogetsu: Ikebana

This is a hands-on class taught by Columbus Sogetsu Ikebana instructor, Michelle Rogers.

Sogetsu Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging) teaches three dimensional, sculptural and asymmetrical design based on three structural lines; Shin, Soe, and Hikae. The first phase of Sogetsu study is in Kakeiho (flower pattern). Join us for an afternoon workshop with Columbus Sogetsu Ikebana instructor, Michelle Rogers, as she walks you through the basic concepts of Sogetsu and guides you in creating a simple but stunning arrangement that exemplifies Sogetsu- the ability to arrange flowers any time, any where, with any materials.

This class is perfect for beginners and will have the added benefit of teaching students about incorporating tropical leaves in creative ways for summer.

Please note: The class sample photo below is a sample of the style of Ikebana, specific flower types will vary for the class.
