Japanese Flower arranging has a history of more than 700 years in Japan. Flowers, grasses and other natural elements serve as more than just objects with which to decorate a room; they are regarded as valuable forms of life that express the beauty and dignity of the natural world within a container. The main goal is to bring humanity closer to nature through meditative contemplation. The materials used in preparing ikebana are also chosen by season, offering a rich diversity of plants and colors, while the arrangement itself is shaped through specific codes and forms, aimed at achieving a balanced and breathtaking result.
Quinn Reed has been leading people in creative experiences for many years. She is an accomplished artist, writer, illustrator, seamstress, and teacher. She studied Japanese flower arranging for four years and finds it be a source of joy and peace. She provides all the materials used in the class and will explain the principals, demonstrate, and give you time to create your own superb arrangement.
