Ikebana Demonstration

April 5 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Ikebana means living flowers. Ikebana is an art in Japan in the same sense that painting and sculpture are elsewhere. In Japan, they have over 2,000 different schools of ikebana. In this workshop, the instructor, Diane Saye will be demonstrating the Ichiyo School of Ikebana. There are two important philosophies of the Ichiyo school, including the concept that the arrangement must fit the environment in which it is displayed and the individual arranger’s characteristics are expressed throughout the arrangement. Thus, it’s not just pretty flowers in a vase; it’s considered to be an art of human connection.


The class is limited to 15 students. Beginners are welcome and the materials fee is $30, please bring 3-5 pieces of fruit or vegetables and a platter or dinner plate for arranging. Please register in advance by calling the BHA at 252-728-5225, e-mailing bhaeducation@outlook.com, or stopping by the Visitor’s Center located at 130 Turner Street.
