An exhibition of the Japanese art of flower arrangement to celebrate the 35th Anniversary of Belfast Chapter of Ikebana International.


 


Ikebana, translated as ‘giving life to flowers’ is a beautiful, often strikingly minimalist art form where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in the philosophy of developing closeness with nature. Traditional arrangements follow rules of composition while modern arrangements allow free expression. The motto of II is “Friendship through flowers” and the organisation seeks to promote mutual understanding between nations through the pleasure of learning ikebana.  Several schools of Ikebana are represented including Ohara and Sogetsu.
