Learn about the intricate and fascinating world of Japanese flower arranging with a demonstration by the Ohara School of Ikebana, England Chapter at the HYPER JAPAN Festival 2017. Whether you’re an experienced flower arranger or are keen to learn more, you’re sure to be educated and entertained. The Japanese treat flower arranging seriously, with a number of different styles and schools. The Ohara School was founded in 1895, when Japan was being influenced more and more by the outside world, and the West in particular. In this session, you’ll get to see a number of arrangements being made, and learn about Japanese culture and the beauty of nature.
The England Chapter of the Ohara School was set up more than 25 years ago in the UK. It meets regularly in the centre of London for workshops and study days. Professors and highly qualified teachers from the headquarters in Tokyo, Japan and from Europe are periodically invited to give demonstrations and seminars to members. Members also participate in flower shows, exhibitions and Ikebana International meetings.
