Mindful Ikebana as Moving Meditation

February 4, 2018
2:00 pm
Montalvo Arts Center

Presented for the fourth time at Montalvo, this class is appropriate for both beginners and returning students at all levels of skill! Bring your consciousness into the moment as you see, touch, smell, and listen to the beauty of flowers! A centuries-old art form, ikebana calms the spirit, focuses the mind, and teaches the eye to identify the beauty in the myriad details of the natural world. Each participant will learn a traditional form of ikebana, then subsequently change it into a modern style with a new creative theme. Both new and returning participants are welcome. At the end of the session, you'll have a beautiful and unique arrangement to bring home. Fee includes a kenzan (pin frog), a plastic vase, and flower materials, but please feel free to bring your favorite vase and/or kenzan if you have one. Participants, please bring the following materials to class: - Ikebana scissors or garden scissors - A plastic bowl of 5"-10" diameter (such as a small salad bowl or Tupperware container) to cut flower stems. - A camera Registration: $65 http://montalvoarts.org/classes/ikebana_moving_meditation/facebook
