Purpose

The Ikenobo School is the oldest school of Ikebana or Japanese flower arranging dating from the 15th century.  Based in Kyoto, the traditional cultural capital of Japan, Ikenobo stresses the inherent nature of  flowers and plants, and it allows one to express personal feelings through this art form. 

The Arizona Chapter of Ikenobo Ikebana was founded in 1964 and chartered in 1974.   We hold workshops  throughout the year led by certified teachers.  New members are always welcome.


November Workshops with visiting Sensei Jeanne Holy

Jeannie Holy The chapter was indeed fortunate to have Jeanne Holy, Professor of Ikenobo Ikebana, as our visiting sensei in November. Jeanne taught a nishuike shoka workshop on Saturday using red and yellow dogwood and fall-colored mums; she then taught rikka shofutai using the new curriculum on Sunday. Workshop participants created rikkas with white chrysanthemums, red gladiolus, ruscus, and lemon leaf, among other materials. Jeanne’s thoughtful and detailed presentations and her careful critiques were helpful to all who attended.

You can view the completed arrangements in the slideshow below or on our Photo gallery page or on our Facebook page.
