Ikebana Workshop with Arrin Sutliff of Tint Floral

Ikebana is the Japanese art of floral design. Learn principles (rules, ratios, angles) and how this approach can be applied to other types of gestural design. People tend to “overstuff”, thinking more is more when it comes to flowers and it ends up looking messy. This practice teaches us to be intentional with negative space and highlight the flowers' natural form.

Flowers from the farm are included in the course fee.

What you’ll need to bring:

  •  Shallow flat bottom container
  • ~3” deep, ~8” wide [measurements are flexible but must be at least 2” deep]
  • you probably have something in your kitchen that will work great. A quiche dish perhaps 
  • Kenzan (flower frog)
  • Round Kenzan 2.5 - 3″ diameter 
  • OR Sun/Moon Kenzan 3″ x 4- 1/2″ ( preferred )
  • Garden Scissors  
  • You may borrow clippers if you do not have your own preferred pair

Ceramic containers and kenzans are available on site to purchase if you choose. Please arrive 20 minutes early if you plan to purchase these materials so it can be done before the start of class.
