Friends of Laurelwood Arboretum is sponsoring a very special program, “The Art of Ikebana,” on Sunday, October 14, at 2:30 pm. at the Knippenberg Center for Education at Laurelwood Arboretum, 725 Pines Lake Drive West, Wayne. Ikebana translates as “Giving life to flowers.” It has been practiced in Japan for hundreds of years, and there are several thousand schools or styles of Ikebana worldwide.
The program will be presented by the Izunome Association, USA. It will feature an explanation of the philosophy of Japanese flower arranging and demonstration of the techniques of Ikebana. There will be sweet treats and a raffle of demonstration arrangements. Tickets at $25 per person must be purchased in advance through our website or by calling 973-831-5675. The program is sponsored, in part, by the Ira A. Roschelle Family Foundation.
