Ikebana – Bringing the Art of Nature Indoors

ikebana-1A handful of students and faculty, guided by school counselor Hashimoto-sensei, held an ikebana workshop on Saturday. Ikebana is a traditional Japanese art form of flower arrangement that dates as far back as the 7th century. According to the Ikebana International website, Ikebana 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 a closeness with nature.
