Ikebana (“arranging flowers” or “making flowers alive”) is the Japanese art of flower arranging. The tradition dates back to Heian period, when floral offerings were made at altars. Later, flower arrangements were instead used to adorn the alcove of a traditional Japanese home.
Gregory Hudgins is a licensed florist and owner of In Great Detail, offering floral services, interior design, and event planning.
Students will learn about the art of Ikebana and make their own arrangement to take home along with the class supplies. Supplies included with cost of the class are an Ikebana style container made by local ceramicist Alyssa Guidry of Wild Phlox Pottery as well as a floral frog.
