Join us for a presentation on the relationship of ikebana to the practice of tea as well as to daily life from the 1600s to today. We will look at how ikebana was part of an expansion of artisan products and landscape design and how that has carried through to today’s use of flower arrangements in Japan. Explore the balance between control and lack of control, like the art of landscape design, there is interaction between the natural features of the plants and environment in these types of arts.
