with Shoso Shimbo
We invite you to join us in May for another insightful and fascinating workshop session with ikebana master Shoso Shimbo. The theme for this workshop is ‘Ikebana Miniatures’, attendees will construct their own arrangements under the guidance of Shoso using miniature stainless steel kenzans (flower spikes) and Made In Japan vessels. As this is a technique we have not previously explored in our workshop series past attendees are welcome to join us again. However, this is still a beginner level class so no previous knowledge of ikebana is required. The equipment provided for your arrangements is yours to keep so you can continue to explore and experiment with ikebana for years to come after the workshop.
