|Ikebana - Japanese Flower Arranging||
Life Skills- Other,
Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is more than simply putting flowers in a container. It is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing closeness with nature. Join Hiroko & Gerard Senese, from the Japan Center at Stony Brook University for a demonstration of the different styles of Japanese flower arrangements. Hiroko Uraga-Senese studied Ikebana in Osaka, Japan in the prestigious Misho-Ryu style of Ikebana, which was established over 200 years ago. She received her Shihan-Teacher's License in 1980 and has been introducing Ikebana to the Long Island community since 1998. Learn about the history, concepts, principles and aesthetics behind each arrangement, and the relationship of the flowers to each particular vase being used.
