First Edmonton Visiting Professor Workshop

We were delighted to host our first visiting Ikenobo professor to Edmonton, June 26-27, 2017.

Please check the calendar on the welcome page for future workshop times and topics.

  • These workshops are open to all  Ikenobo students and teachers.
  • 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.

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.
