Ikebana Demonstration: 80 Years of Ikebana
August 27, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm$55
Ikebana International presents its annual luncheon, demonstration and silent auction on August 27, welcoming and hosting guest presenter Elaine Jo, a nationally known ikebana teacher, demonstrator, and exhibitor in the Ichiyo School of Ikebana. Her demonstration will feature the progression of the Ichiyo school styles through their three headmasters. On Aug. 28 she will teach two workshops at the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway for Ikebana International members only. Jo lived in Tokyo for 25 years and received her Master’s Degree from the Ichiyo School during that period. She enjoys arranging both classical and contemporary ikebana but contemporary is her favorite. Ikebana provides a well-matched creative expression for modern Asheville as it combines nature, reflection, and art.
