The Ikebana International Ann Arbor Chapter #183 , in our 47th year.
We meet the third Thursday of each month September - May in room 125 at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.
April Workshop – Ikenobo - Miniature arrangements with spring materials
In this lesson, Ikenobo Sensei Cheryl Linck will lead us in putting on our creative hats and bring our tiny vases, small bowls, teacups, or small ikebana containers with built in kenzans. You may also want to bring small gravel if needed to raise your kenzan closer to the lip of your container.
The only rule in Ikenobo for miniatures is that the arrangement be no larger than an 8 ½ by 11-inch paper. And, as is true in many schools of Ikebana, best to limit the varieties of materials used. We will have some small kenzans available for sale, and will provide floral material. Feel free to bring additional appropriate floral material (ex. Grape Hyacinth, Forget-Me-Knot, Primrose, Narcissus, Virginia Bluebells).

The Ann Arbor chapter met on St. Patrick’s Day for a March workshop appropriately titled “Focus on Green”. The word “green” originally had the meaning of “grow”. Green is truly a fundamental element of life bringing pleasure, peace and relaxation. Leslie, a Sogetsu instructor, led the workshop.
