Overview

With the trend towards pared-down, simple rooms, now is the time to discover how ikebana's sculptural style can complement contemporary interiors and to learn how its calm creative techniques can provide an ideal antidote to the stresses of modern living. Ikebana is much more than simply flower arranging.

Over the centuries, Japanese masters have developed precise rules that take into consideration the natural shapes and lines of plants, the space around them and the best way of displaying them. Ikebana explores the basic techniques for creating your own arrangements. Plus, a selection of arrangements illustrates the importance of the changing seasons in choosing plant material, while fantastic free-style designs show how ikebana can echo specific details of an interior.

Author Biography: Diane Norman is an ikebana master. She was awarded the flower name Hosei, or "abundant sincerity." She is a member of the Ikebana Teachers Association, Ikebana International, and the Ohara Chapter in London.

Michelle Cornell organizes workshops for people wishing to learn ikebana in a contemporary context.
