In the Ikebana classes you will learn the methodology of arranging flowers and plants and enjoy the beauty of the art.

Flower Arrangement

This is the very basic style of Sogetsu Ryuu flower arrangement.

There are three main branches.

  1. Shin, the longest main branch is placed leaning slightly to the left at an angle of 15 degrees from the vertical position.
  2. Soe is placed slanting to the left front at an angle of 45 degrees.
  3. Hikae (often a flower stem) is placed slanting to the right front at an angle of 75 degrees.

Juushi or supporting flowers and branches should be cut shorter than the main branches. They are placed to make the arrangement more colorful and attractive.  Also, needle point holders should be well conceived by Juushi.

Branches and flowers need to be cut in the water to make them last longer. 

They don’t like windy places and to be touched for a long time.
