Shoko Iwata, President of I.I.’s New York Chapter recently came across some historical records of Ikebana International as a worldwide organization. In the 1965 spring-summer issue of our I.I. magazine, she found the following quote:
“It is not what Ikebana International can do for us that counts, but what we can do for Ikebana International.”
The wonderful world of Ikebana opens to all the opportunity to explore, to create, to enjoy beauty and to share. Our members build on their knowledge with every meeting, every class and every encounter with another Ikebana lover. Their power to evoke beauty from minimal and unusual materials is stunning!
