Workshop Schedule

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.

New Free Style with Sensei Pat Maguire

Professor FujiiPat Maguire led the class in the first two classes in a series of workshops on Free Style. The new Free Style curriculum includes a workbook and special vase designed especially for the class. The new vase has four different sides that can be used in a wide variety of arrangements. The new curriculum and vase took 12 years to develop. Our sensei, Pat Maguire, pictured at left with president Linnea Storm, is the first instructor in Ikenobo of Arizona certified to teach the new curriculum.

You can view the completed arrangements in the slideshow below or on our Photo gallery page.
