IKEBANA WORKSHOP at Ómur Yoga & Gongsetur in Akureyri, Iceland


- What is ikebana? -
We are sometimes attracted by a tiny part of nature. Why? Since it’s a reflection of your heart. The charm of ikebana lies in the fact that the expression will be different depending on time, place, and person who arranges it in spite of using the same container and material.
Ikebana is arranged by putting your “heart” into it.
Ikebana is an art to appreciate to your “live” and “nature”.

- What you would learn from this workshop -
We are going out for plants hunting and use the wild materials you would collect on the field.
You would learn the philosophy of ikebana, how to chose materials and make ikebana composition using your own flower vase.
