Japanese Flower Arranging Demonstration at the Fairfield Civic Center Library

By Michelle Franzen

The Fairfield Civic Center Library will host a program on the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging, ikebana, on Saturday, May 13, 2017 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM. Ikebana is not simply putting flowers in a pleasing arrangement, rather it is a disciplined art form that joins nature and humanity. Sandra Hatcher, Senior Professor of Ikenobo, will give an introduction and demonstration of ikebana. Ikenobo is the oldest school of ikebana and is considered the origin of the art. The seasonal beauty of flowers is appreciated through both traditional and contemporary styles. This class will offer a brief discussion of the history, styles and techniques of ikebana, and the opportunity to create a unique arrangement.


The library is located at 1150 Kentucky St. in Fairfield. For questions call 1-866-572-7587.
