Basic Arrangements for all occasions
Each class will consist of a brief demonstration and explanation of the arrangement to be made that evening.
During class we will explore the basic concepts of creating Ikebana: Color, Line, Mass, Surface, Space, Depth and Focal point.
Different containers will be used in class and you will learn how to adapt containers for use in Ikebana arranging.
There will be an ongoing discussion of materials such as branches, leaves and flowers. Learn how to prepare materials (preparation and pruning), plus what and how many to choose. Learn which materials are best suited to the role they will play in your arrangement. There will also be discussion about where to purchase materials and plants that one can grow in the garden or patio containers.
What you will need to begin class:
Utility or kitchen shears
Small notebook and pen
The costs for the sessions will be as follows:
$100.00 members and $150.00 for Non-members of the CJCC. A CJCC annual membership is $25.00 or $15.00 for seniors.
There will be a maximum fee of $15.00 per class session which includes some basic containers, floral materials, oasis floral foam and other supplies needed to complete your arrangement.
Later, as you progress in skill, there will be metal pin flower holders (kenzan) for sale for use in the more classical styles we will be studying.

About the instructor:
Name: Linda Hartley
I have studied Japanese floral arts with the Ikenobo school of Ikebana for approximately thirty years. I obtained my teachers certification in San Francisco in 2006. Since my return to Canada, I have remained an active member in the San Francisco Ikenobo Ikebana chapter. In the recent past, I have also served as the President of Ikebana International, a club that promotes the study of all schools of Ikebana and holds flower shows, discussions and demonstrations for the public.
Upon my retirement from long service as a Social Worker, it has been my goal to teach Ikebana classes and share the joy, artistic challenge, and personal growth I have experienced in my studies.
