What is Ikebana?
Ikebana is one of the traditional arts of Japan and has been practiced for more than 600 years. It began as one of the traditional offertory decorations placed before an image of Buddha. By the middle of the 15th century, ikebana achieved the status of an art form, independent of its religious origins, though it continued to retain strong symbolic and philosophical overtones. The different forms and styles of ikebana strive to harmonize with the contemporary spaces where people live, work and play. The tradition has evolved into a modern art form that can be enjoyed by everyone.
About the Cleveland Chapter
Cleveland Chapter #20 was founded on March 16, 1959 by Lucille Wunderly with the objectives to stimulate, cultivate and to strengthen relationships among teachers and students of ikebana. Chapter #20 continues to study ikebana and Japanese culture while practicing its motto “Friendship Through Flowers”.
