IKENOBO The history of Ikenobo is the history of ikebana. Senkei Ikenobo, a Buddhist priest of the Rokkakudo temple, created the earliest form of ikebana in 1462 and during the 15th Century Senno Ikenobo, an active master of ikebana established a theory of ikebana teaching which included not only technique but also philosophy. Like a poem or painting made with flowers, Ikenobo’s ikebana expresses both the beauty of flowers and the beauty of longing in our own hearts. FAQs What to Expect at an Ikebana class: Students will bring their supplies for the workshop as stated above. If you need to purchase a container for Workshop 1 or kenzans for either workshop, they will be available. Flowers and materials will be passed out to all students. The teacher (sensei) will teach the lesson on handling, cutting and placing flowers and materials into the container. Students will then have the opportunity to create the arrangement on their own. Questions will be answered. When the students complete the arrangement, the teacher will review and comment on each arrangement. At the conclusion of the workshop, we will clean up our spaces and thank the teacher. What are parking options for the event? There is parking on the right side of the church where you will enter.
