"The earth laughs in flowers."- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ikebana is the Japanese art of flower arrangement, derived from the Japanese IKERU ("keep alive, arrange flowers, living!") and HANA ("flower"). Free-style Ikebana is Ikebana which gives rein to the free sensibility of our modern daily lives. The Ikebana you create will reflect the light, relaxed style of contemporary living, free from the constraints of convention but true to your own personal lifestyle.

Since the free style takes its inspiration from this sensibility, there are no set rules. The Ikebana comes into being in a dialogue between the natural plants and your individual personality.

Note: There is an additional materials fee that needs to be paid upon arrival.
