Overview

 

Japanese flower arrangement has very unique senses of beauty, structure and rules which differ a lot from the flower arrangement in the West. Unlike the Western style flower arrangement which adopts gorgeous and colorful style using many kinds of flowers, Japanese flower arrangement is based on the minimalism; using fewer flowers (compared to Western style) and interspersed among leaves, stalks and twigs.

As flowers are very often painted in Japanese women’s traditional dress, Kimono, it shows how important flowers mean to Japanese people and their souls. Experiencing the Japanese flower arrangement will definitely draw you into the gate of Japanese beautiful arts.

How to Enjoy

 

Since there are many different schools of the Japanese flower arrangement, it would be interesting to learn the different technique from different schools. The most common and well-known schools are: Ikenobo, Sogetsu and Ohara. Some schools advocate that the arrangement should look similar to flower in the wild, other focus more on the precision of the shape, line, form and angles etc. By trying the different schools, you may also find your own style too!

 

 

 

 

 

Caution

 

  • Please pay careful attention when using the tools, such as scissors and needle-point flower holders.
