CRAFT SOCIAL: THE ART OF IKEBANA

Time
Thursday, May 17, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Location
Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
4848 Main St. (Map)

Join HCCC for Craft Social, a night of making and exploring contemporary craft over conversation and refreshments. 

In May, we will explore ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement.  More than simply arranging flowers in a containerikebana is a disciplined art form in which nature and humanity are brought together.  Learn about this art form’s history with a short presentation by Sylvia Hanna-Russel from the Ikenobo School of Ikebana. Then, with help from the experts at the Ikebana Society of Houston, play with form, color, and line using a variety of plants to create an asymmetrical floral composition.  Plants and vases will be provided, and some materials will be sourced from HCCC’s very own Craft Garden.
