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.

Chapter Day Moribana Workshop with Sensei Pat Maguire

Professor Yoichi MizutaniAfter a long, hot summer off, our eagerly awaited annual Chapter Day workshop was held on September 20. Students brought their favorite soup or rice bowl to create a Moribana arrangement. One of our most experienced Senseis, Pat Maguire was the instructor for the workshop.

Three honorary lifetime memberships were presented at the workshop. The memberships were awarded in recognition of Outstanding Achievement in the Art of Ikenobo and Support of Ikenobo of Arizona to Pat Maguire, Norma Caston, and Sumiye Nishida. Memberships have also been awarded to David Payne and Janet Ikeda, who were unable to attend the workshop.

You can view pictures from the workshop below or on our Facebook page.
