It is lovely to see some of our students still practising ikebana from home.
If you have access to some material please do send your pictures and we will be happy to share them.
Since I got rather behind in my posts last season I plan to go through those pictures and post a selection of them here for your enjoyment.
To start us off, here are arrangements from Randi and Julie.
We hope you are all well and look forward to getting back to classes with you whenever that may be.
Julie: Inspired by COVID molecules.
As we start out Fall season we hope you will be inspired by these pictures from our May and August workshops with visiting professors from Japan and France. Follow the links below for more pictures and information.

Some more catching up. Stayed tuned as there are a couple of other classes from this Fall to be posted as well.
How quickly the time has flown. Another season of ikebana classes have finished and we thank all our students for their enthusiastic participation and support. We also offer great appreciation and thanks to our treasurer, Jacqueline, and our host venues: the Edmonton Japanese Community Association and the Edmonton Jewish Seniors’ Drop In Centre. We look forward to continuing to be part of your programming in the upcoming year.
Regular classes will resume in March. Please check the calendar on the home page for dates and topics. We are also excited to be starting Rikka classes with our more experienced students. Dates and times will be emailed. Stay tuned.
