Joyful Flowers: Ikebana Show

March 3 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm

Joyful Flowers - Ikebana Show | Sherman Library & Gardens

Presented by Ikebana Lessons

Saturday, March 2 & Sunday, March 3
10.30am – 4pm

The ‘Joyful Flowers’ Ikebana Show will present exquisite floral arrangements created by teachers from Ikebana Lessons.

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arranging, expressed in a special way using balance, harmony and form. In Ikebana, branches, leaves, flowers and everything that nature offers, is used for art making.

The Sangetsu School style aims to bring out the beauty of flowers and branches using their natural colors, lines, and shapes gently placed inside beautiful and unique vases and baskets.

Families will be invited to make their own mini-ikebana box to take home and the sales area will include kits, books, arrangements and bouquets to purchase.

The show will also feature an ikebana-inspired display by the Sherman Library & Gardens horticulture team in the garden.
