Ikebana Inspired Floral Design Workshop – Sat 20 Jul 2024

Ikebana Inspired Floral Design Workshop

Date: Saturday 20 July 2024, 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Venue: York Art Gallery

10am-12:30pm

£50.00 per person

Book tickets here

A modern approach to using fresh cut flowers led by floral design studio Terra Flora.

Taking inspiration from our National Treasures – Monet in York exhibition, this is a Japanese inspired floral design workshop that in part teaches the main principals of ikebana (the Japanese art of flower arranging) with its emphasis on finding inspiration in the natural world, and, in part demonstrates a modern interpretation of this ancient tradition.

Whether you’re familiar with ikebana or not, you most likely have encountered its stylistic signatures; the embrace of negative space, a dramatic asymmetry and a focus on the engagement of the natural world. In this workshop we will guide you in creating beautiful bowl displays, offer up our knowledge of working seasonally and give you the tools and practical skills needed to create stunning displays at home.

The workshop is for everyone and gives all participants plenty of time to learn, explore and be creative. You don’t need to bring anything with you, as all tools and materials needed for the session will be provided. At the end of the workshop, you will go home with your creations that will include a basic kit to get you started on your floral journey. The kit includes a kenzan (flower pin frog) and a simple display bowl.

Terra Flora is a floral design atelier based in Saltaire, West Yorkshire. We work with the seasons to make naturalistic florals and botanical installation spaces for occasions and events. We take our inspiration directly from nature echoing how plants and flowers grow together, but with a modern twist. We have established a cutting garden at our studio home that allows us to design with fresh flowers that we grow through the seasons. We love to share our learned knowledge and experience and our floral workshops are designed to give participants a balance between gaining practical knowledge and getting creative.

All materials provided
Suitable for those aged 16+ (under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult at all times)

Refreshments provided by Sketch Cafe. 

 

This workshop is part of our National Treasures: Monet in York exhibition events programme. Entry to the exhibition and our permanent collections is included in the price.
