What is Ikebana?
What is Ikebana International?
Membership is open to all persons interested in the art of ikebana and the ideas of I.I., regardless of their previous experience.
Please contact us, if you have any questions.
This is the annual Japanese Fall Festival put on by the New Mexico Japanese American Society and held at the Veterans Memorial Park. Members will be making arrangements to display at the event, Tiffany Nakagawa’s husband will be selling sumi-e brush art to benefit our club and the Japanese American Society and our club members will be on hand to promote the art of ikebana and our club! Flyers will be emailed in September about the event! Tickets can be purchased at https://tickets.holdmyticket.com/tickets/378891
This is an annual event that we participate in to really showcase our talent and love for ikebana! Club members will make arrangements for display and the coordinator for this event is Royalene McDonald - so stay tuned for sign-ups!
Working with a single material, flowers and/or branches, in the Ichiyo School, we will focus on the moribana form. Three members will provide front, side and rear images of their interpretation of the one-material approach for discussion during the program. Participants are encouraged to try this challenge on their own later, and send images to the presenter for sharing with the membership.
Arranging with Fruits and/or Vegetables: This will be a chance for us all to create and then share our interpretation of this type of arrangement. Yayoi will provide materials 3 weeks in advance to be picked up at the Albuquerque Garden Center or in the North Valley. Then the membership will create and photograph the arrangements (just use your phone) and send them to Yayoi's email. Then during the Zoom meeting each of us will discuss our arrangement and receive feedback. Hopefully this will help a Zoom Meeting feel more like our in person-meetings with interactions and sharing. An email with Yayoi's email address and information on the date and places to pick up materials will go out a week before materials are provided. Please respond immediately where you would like to pick up or if you wish to provide your own materials.
More information will follow later in the fall concerning the specific date and sign-ups for the potluck. Members will make a small ikebana arrangement to exchange instead of a traditional white elephant gift exchange and Jane Cole will give a short presentation on an element of Japanese Culture!
