I heard in some schools it isn't, so how is it seen overall for Ikebana? Are they connected/linked?
Is it frowned upon to practice more than one school of ikebana? Or is it generally accepted in the ikebana community? I ask because I’m finding myself quite drawn to Ikenobo and Ohara, however I am a student of Sogetsu due to availability.
Hi all. People in my area keep rejecting my ikebana art portal submissions by suggesting they are temporary. What do you think, is this one and the others like these acceptable as portals?
I'm not quite sure where the right place to post this was, but I thought this might be a good start. My Dad found this painting at a Goodwill. It's dated back to 1983 and was originally bought in Japan. I found out the word on the front, 'Ikebana', is the art style. If the back is illegible, it says, Dear Joan, I picked this up for you in Japan. Have a great Christmas. Thanks for being part of my team. Is so special. Love Mary. My dad flips things from consignment shops and I was wondering if fellow redditors could help with a valuation. I did a liittle reasearch on Ebay and the prices vary wildly. Any insight would be helpful. Thank you so much.
Anyone know where I can buy one for a Christmas present in Portland? I’m from Eugene so I’m not seeing any here.
noun : the Japanese art of arranging flowers.
I am pulled to learn this art. Does anybody know of an online resource they would recommend? I plan on learning this on my off-hours since it's something that fills me with peace, so ideally the course or guide would be somewhat light-hearted. Thank you for your help :)
Yearly holiday festival celebrating Japanese culture. Will have a lot of food and cultural events, including ikebana (and bonsai) displays. It's in Old Town a couple blocks north of the Sedgwick Brown Line train stop.
You're not seeing double. When I posted this yesterday I put Friday in the title. I'm sorry!
Here is the event link again: https://www.facebook.com/events/482536299152914/
Maybe you all noticed and were just too nice to point out my mistake :) Hopefully I don't cause anyone to go there Friday on accident!
Hi there! I am currently in Tokyo for the next few days. I have been looking all over for ikebana flower vases but have not had any luck. Anyone know where I can get these in Tokyo? Thanks!
Doesn't have to be historical, so don't feel bound by genre other than needing a "samurai."
Anyone here done an Ikebana course at Ikebana Studio or at Calgary Buddhist Temple or at any other place in the city? I want to sign up, but can't decide which place to choose.
Any recommendations or words of advice?
I always find myself missing out on workshops I wanted to go to, specifically taiko drumming and ikebana demonstrations -- and I see also they have kazari building & a mahjong learning workshop! This year I'm specifically going to make time for these, but I'd like to know what to expect beforehand! Never been to a workshop @ a con before!
So while rolling rather quickly last night to start anew playthrough With lichenology I saw this fifth skill ikebana or something pop up a few times was wondering if anyone knew what it was as it's not in the master list
Can you recommend a local affordable place for such classes?
relatedly, did you find the class fun and relaxing? Or was it stressful trying to figure it all out?
For me it shows that art does not have to be baraque and gaudy to be interesting and beautiful. Ikebana is "simple" and it brings you to a place of peace and centerdness. It helped me learn to calm myself during a bad time in my life and the ability to learn practical form and function with sometimes simple things from the pieces I was creating. Good luck to all members of this community!
