Ohara School of Ikebana Exhibition
April 15 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00 am, repeating until April 16, 2023
In honor of the Japanese tradition of cherry blossom viewing (Sakura Matsuri), the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Ohara School of Ikebana will present a spring exhibition to coincide with the blooming of our cherry trees. Ikebana, also known as the “way of flowers,” is the art of Japanese flower arrangement and is subtle, sensitive, sophisticated, and meditative. It utilizes flowers, leaves, and branches, as well as unexpected and/or unconventional materials.
Members of the Ohara School of Ikebana will be available to answer questions about the art form and arrangements displayed. This event is free and open to the public.
