Loading Classes/Events
This class/event has passed.

Join 3rd Term Master Joe Rotella and create an Ohara School of Ikebana arrangement.

The lesson will start promptly at 4 PM. Please consider arriving at 3:45 PM so you’ll be set up and ready to start learning at 4 PM. The lesson will end by 5:30 PM. Your help cleaning up the room would be greatly appreciated. We must leave the room and have it look great by 6 PM.

Joe will start the lesson with a brief history of the Ohara School of Ikebana. Then, he’ll demonstrate how to create a Rising Form arrangement (Hana-isho Kihon Tateru-katachi), and then you’ll make your own arrangement!

Hana-isho is a simple type of ikebana that can be created and displayed anywhere and divided into two categories: Basic and Advanced. The Rising Form is in the Basic category and expresses the beauty of the rising appearances of materials grouped at the container’s center.

If you don’t have a suitable container or tools, some are available to use on loan during the lesson. Quantities are limited, and you must arrange to borrow items in advance.

Don’t hesitate to contact Joe Rotella (614.537.7077 or by email) if you have questions.
