The Ikenobo School is the oldest school of Ikebana or Japanese flower arranging dating from the 15th century. Based in Kyoto, the traditional cultural capital of Japan, Ikenobo stresses the inherent nature of flowers and plants, and it allows one to express personal feelings through this art form.
The Arizona Chapter of Ikenobo Ikebana was founded in 1964 and chartered in 1974. We hold workshops throughout the year led by certified teachers. New members are always welcome.
Sensei David Payne began the workshop by stating that the shoka is his favorite style of ikebana and went on to explain that, "A shoka is to Ikebana as a sonnet is to poetry or a sonata is to music. I remember a beautiful shoka arrangement that I made with Pussywillow. My Sensei laughed and reminded me that 'you can't have a shoka without leaves'."
Students worked with blackberry privet, (which has leaves) to create their Nishuike shoka arrangement. In addition to the lecture and demonstration, the sensei provided a handout that he created to provide hints and advice for students when creating their arrangements.
Dave was a commercial florist for many years. His love of flowers led him to begin his Ikenobo studies in 1981 with Winnie Donald and then Muriel Scrivner as his teachers. He has his Sokako teacher’s certificate…one of the highest that can be obtained. For ten years, he provided Ikenobo Ikebana arrangements for the Asian section of the Phoenix Art Museum.
The nishuike (two material shoka) was the 2nd in the shoka series of workshops that will be presented by the chapter this year.
