Edmonton Visiting Professor Workshops

We were delighted to host our first visiting Ikenobo professor to Edmonton, June 26-27, 2017, and are very happy this is now an annual event.

Please check the Sign Up page for future workshop times and topics.

  • These workshops are open to all  Ikenobo students and teachers.
  • Coming from another chapter or study group? Please contact for registration information.

Special Workshops with visiting professors from Japan are held across North America throughout the year. Some are open to all levels, some only to advanced students.

On this page you will see examples of some of the work from events we attend and notices for upcoming workshops that might be of interest to Edmonton students.

San Francisco March 2018

The 50th anniversary of Ikenobo Ikebana Society of America and 55th anniversary of the Ikenobo California Chapter provided a rare opportunity to learn and experience the work of the headmaster, the headmaster designate and many guest professors. Here is a selection of pictures from the exhibit and lessons with arrangements representing a variety of styles from traditional to modern.

Illinois October 2017

What a treat to participate in the 20th anniversary celebrations of the Illinois Prairie Chapter!

A demonstration by headmaster designate Senko Ikenobo and the screening of the film Flower and Sword were certainly highlights of this occasion. The public  exhibition and professor Noda’s workshops were truly inspiring, and the hospitality of the chapter was outstanding. Many thanks to all involved, with a special shout out to our fabulous Friday evening dinner hosts.
