Ohara Ikebana Lesson (Inclining Form)

Loading Classes/Events

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 arrangement. Then, he’ll demonstrate how to create an Incling Form arrangement (Hana-isho Katamukeru-katachi [かたむけるかたち]), and then you’ll make your arrangement!

This form of arrangement makes the most of graceful, slanting materials.

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. Registering online, you can reserve a container, kenzan, and scissors.

Please get in touch with Joe Rotella (614.537.7077 or by email) if you have questions.
