 ’IKEBANA for Everyone 1st' 「誰でもいけばなⅠ」



This is an English Ikebana class video, that we had at u-toc.

It was broad casted by NHK, shizuoka.



Ikebana (生け花 "living flowers") is
the Japanese traditional art of flower arrangement,
also known as kadō (華道, the "way of flowers").



Possible translations include "giving life to flowers" and "arranging flower.
Ikebana is more than simply putting flowers in a container, it is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together.
Ikebana often emphasizes  its stems and leaves, and draws toward shape, line, form. Though ikebana is a creative expression, it has certain rules governing its form. The artist's intention behind each arrangement is shown through a piece's color combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the usually implied meaning of the arrangement.
   The structure of a Japanese flower arrangement is based on a scalene triangle delineated by three main points, usually twigs, considered in some schools to symbolize heaven, earth, and man and in others sun, moon, and earth. The container is a key element of the composition, and various styles of pottery may be used in their construction.
    Any plant material may be used : branches, leaves, grasses, moss and fruit, as well as flowers. Withered leaves, seedpods and buds are valued as highly as flowers in full bloom. A work may be composed of only one, or many different kinds of materials, the selection of each element demands an experienced eye, and the arrangement requires technical skill in order to create a kind of beauty that cannot be found in nature.

The tools we need are:
* Container or vase
* Needle point holder
* Scissors
* Flowers
