About Ikenobo Floral Art

Floral Art is about more than just arranging flowers; it is about understanding the life of flowers and plants as well as the human heart.

Ikenobo originated in Kyoto, Japan over 500 years ago as Buddhist floral offerings, making it the oldest form of Ikebana. This beautiful art is passed down through generations of the Ikenobo family, who are devoted to teaching future teachers and students, resulting in the art of Ikenobo spreading around the world. Exhibitions, lectures and classes are regularly being held through out Asia, Europe, America and Australia. Ikenobo philosophy adapts to the native floral material.

“Ikebana enriches both the spirit and our daily lives, and in doing so it brings deep meaning to the joy of being alive. This essential equation is unchanging, regardless of place or historic period.

Through the study of ikebana our hearts become benevolent, and we are filled with admiration for nature and the love of humankind. Thus, the creation of a beautiful cultural tradtion brings bright promise for the future, a promise for the future, a promise especially important for us today” Headmaster Sen’ei Ikenobo.
