    Sogetsu Ikebana

    "Anytime, anywhere, any material."

    “In 1927, when everybody believed practicing ikebana meant following established forms, Sofu Teshigahara recognized ikebana as a creative art and founded the Sogetsu School. Anyone can enjoy Sogetsu Ikebana anytime, anywhere, using any material. You can place Sogetsu Ikebana at your door, in your living room or on your kitchen table. Sogetsu Ikebana enhances any hotel lobby or banquet room, shop windows and huge public spaces. It will suit any kind of space, Japanese or Western and enrich its atmosphere.”

    In-Person and Virtual Sogetsu Instructor and Demonstrator

    My ikebana journey began over twenty years ago when I saw an arrangement made with a bowl, branch, and deep red rose. I was hooked and began the formal learning process as soon as I could. I was awarded my sogetsu teachers certification in 2010 and began teaching immediately. My home studio is a light, bright. space where my students and I focus on the thrill of learning and creating ikebana!
