Invitation to Ikebana: Modern

  • Denver Botanic Gardern 1007 York Street Denver, CO, 80206 United States (map)

Ikebana is an expression of our respect and appreciation towards nature. We observe life through the arrangement of plants. During each class, participants receive hands-on instruction to put together an arrangement to take home.

Instructor: Akiko Buckmaster & assistant Lois Krause. Akiko Buckmaster, born in Japan, is a master teacher of Ohara Ikebana School. She has been teaching Ikebana in the Denver area for forty years.

Price: $44, $39 members, $15 materials fee included

Special Instructions:

Students are encouraged to bring their own Ikebana container (vase) and a large Kenzan (= Pin-frog, 3.5” diameter or larger) as well as garden clippers (or Ikebana scissors) so that they can take home their finished arrangement. The Kenzan and Ikebana vase can be reused for future arrangements again and again for years. Container, Kenzan, and scissors will be lent during the class for those who don't bring their own, but then they will only bring home their flowers.
