Ikebana Autumn

AN IKEBANA AUTUMN at the Botanic Garden, October 6,7,8.


Our Shambhala Kado Group who creates all the exquisite arrangements for our Center are participating in this event!  They will be at the exhibit on Saturday, October 7 from 11-1.  If you are an Ikebana lover, stop in to see them!

Ichiyo School of Ikebana – Albuquerque Chapter will exhibit at the Albuquerque Bio-Park Botanic Garden in the High Desert Rose Garden Building on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 6, 7 & 8, 2018, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, and will demonstrate an oversized arrangement in the Botanic Garden’s Japanese Garden on Sunday Oct 8th at 1:30 pm.

Ikebana means “living flowers” in Japanese and is the ancient floral art of Japan.  The Ichiyo School of Ikebana, founded in 1937, is located in Tokyo, Japan and has certified and licensed teachers all over the world.  The Ichiyo School of Ikebana-Albuquerque Chapter is a community of members teaching and studying Ichiyo Ikebana in New Mexico.

Two important philosophies of the Ichiyo School include the concept that an arrangement must fit the environment in which it is displayed and the individual arranger’s emotions and character are to be expressed in the arrangement.  

The exhibition will be presented in such a way as to visually demonstrate what students will study in each of the first six courses of Ichiyo ikebana.
