7s Art Workshop is online!
We will host an Ikebana Workshop on August 6 at Artosino in Manhattan (265 W 37th St, New York, NY 10018).
You will learn Ikenobo ikebana, the oldest and largest school of Ikebana, accompanied with Guqin music and Chinese tea on this romantic afternoon!
What is Ikenobo ikebana?
More than putting flowers in a container, ikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together. Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement as a collection of particolored or multicolored arrangement of blooms, ikebana often emphasizes oter areas of the plant, such as its stems and leaves, and draws emphasis toward shape, line, and form.
