What Chapter 65 Offers!

If you love flowers, nature and their wondrous beauty, this is the place for you!  Studying in the traditions of Japan’s revered schools of flower arranging, our Chapter also enjoys the culture and history of Japan.  We welcome you to join us, seek new learning, refine your skills, and enjoy the kindred spirit that we cherish!

What Is Ikebana?

Ikebana (ee-kay-bah-nah) is the Japanese word for the art of Japanese flower arranging. A free translation might be “bringing flowers to life.” Ikebana arrangements capture nature through the designer’s eyes and provide uniquely beautiful glimpses of something magical. It is an art form that will challenge your creativity!
