This class will begin with a short demonstration of freestyle Ikebana designs using self-made, woven structures to support the floral materials. A workshop will follow during which participants will create their own “baskets” and floral arrangements. Simplicity, balance and harmony will be emphasized. It’s fun, and anyone can do it! All necessary materials, including palm strips for the baskets, a stapler, a cup container, and floral materials will be provided. Participants may take this home with them after the workshop.
Gretchen Ward Warren is a member of Ikebana International Chapter 65 of St. Petersburg, FL and a Certified Instructor in the Ichiyo School of Ikebana. She has conducted numerous ikebana demonstrations and workshops. Her floral arrangements have been exhibited at many garden club flowers shows, Ikebana exhibitions, and Art in Bloom at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg.
