Sunshine Place, together with Marc Tomas, former President of Ikebana International Manila Chapter 108 and member of Sogetsu Potential Manila Chapter, will conduct another workshop on Ikebana-Sogetsu-inspired flower arrangement at Sunshine Place next month.
Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. From the simple floral offerings dating back to the Heian period, the art of flower arrangement has evolved through the years and now has several schools. Ikebana has three pointed structures to represent humanity, earth, and heaven. It is guided by minimalism and graceful shapes.
The workshop is for beginners who will learn the basics of the Japanese art of flower arrangements such as upright Moribana style, basic slanting and variation with movements, basic Nagiri Style, and a combination of Moribana and Nagiri Arrangements.
Tomas who has been teaching Ikebana classes at Sunshine Place since 2017 will conduct the limited face-to-face workshop on November 5, 12, 19, and 26 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
Starter kits are available at the venue. Each starter kit includes flowers for the four sessions, kenzan, and a vertical and horizontal base. Students are encouraged to bring their own gardening scissors for the class.
