Ikebana is the Japanese art of arranging flowers. A centuries old art form in which humanity and nature are brought together. In traditional ikebana there are many rules and coded meanings. With found object ikebana, we take the basics of the ikebanaa practice, but we let objects found on daily walks, along with seasonal blooms, branches and weeds, guide the construction of a piece. Some pieces come together with minutes, others take months until the complementary pieces are found. These found object ikebana are meditations, exercises to seek beauty in the mundane and to create thought, attention and balance from discarded, ignored, or lost objects.

In this workshop you will discover your own found objects to create an ikebana sculpture.
