Purpose

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.


Shoka Futakabuike with Sensei David Payne

David PayneDavid Payne, one of our highest ranking instructors, hosted the Soka Futakabuike workshop in February. This shoka is a traditional style Shoka that consists of two styles: Gyoda-ike consisting of two groups of water plants and Suirika-ike -- consisting of one land and one water group. David demonstrated both styles while the class focused on the creation of the Gyoda-ike style.

David moved here with his parents at age 5 and began first grade in Phoenix. Phoenix was such a small town back then that even though Dave lived 5 miles south of town (way out on Baseline Road), he could still hear the bells of St Mary’s when he got off the bus after school. Dave’s wife, Jackie, iwas born in Glendale. The Paynes have one son who lives in far off Virginia, but is a frequent visitor. 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.
