Ikebana seminar










Seminar is one of the most important events in HDB . People from different

countries can learn the traditional culture through Seminar.

Kyoto boasts its historical ruins and traditional Japanese culture . That’s the

reason why we held the Ikebana(flower arrangement) event in HDB .

We invited the professional teacher from Sogetsu school (草月流) . Sogetsu is a

school of Ikebana, or Japanese floral art.

Sogetsu typically uses either a tall, narrow vase such as one made from a

bamboo stem, or a flat, open dish in which the flowers and branches are fixed in a

hidden kenzan spiked support. However, other forms are possible, including highly

elaborate creations that fill an entire hall.

One of Sogetsu's central ideas is that an arrangement should have three strong

elements, each with certain proportions and arranged at a certain angle. But there is

considerable latitude to work with whatever materials are available and to express

the spirit of the moment.

The school was founded in 1927 by Sofu Teshigahara. It is currently led by Akane

Teshigahara, the founder's granddaughter. Noted practitioners include Master

Instructor Koka Fukushima, whose masterclasses worldwide have received acclaim in

floral art circles .

Everyone in HDB learned the traditional flower arrangement culture . We really

appreciated the teacher’s lecture .13479484_10209536068348366_1251031394_n 13474114_10209536068228363_555962105_n
