IKEBANA BY MEGUMI AT THE CONSERVATORY
Megumi Schacher will share the history of Ikebana. The Sogetsu School of ikebana, founded in 1927, has its roots in the ancient art of Japanese flower arrangement. Their philosophy is that the basic rules and techniques of ikebana are the foundation for a lifetime of creative artistic expression that can be practiced by anyone, anywhere, using any plant materials. Students are encouraged to be individualistic and imaginative, while working within a framework that respects the relationships between space, line, depth, movement, color, form and balance. Their ikebana creations are meant to enrich both the creator and the viewer.
Megumi is a member of the Seattle branch of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana and a certified instructor.
