Ikebana demonstration presented by Ikebana international, Fort Worth Chapter
Ikebana, which translates to «living flowers,» is the Japanese art of flower arrangement. It is also known as Kadō, or “the way of flowers." The tradition dates back to the seventh century, when floral offerings were made at altars. Later, they were placed in the tokonoma (alcove) of a home. Ikebana reached its first zenith in the sixteenth century under the influence of Buddhist tea masters and has grown over the centuries, with over one thousand different schools in Japan and abroad.
