Our next meeting will be held at Japan Consul General and Mrs. Fukushima's residence. Information will be on the evite. This is a members only program.
Mrs. Katayama, from JASH, taught us how to write our names in Japanese calligraphy. She even taught us the kanji for flower and ikebana. Members and guests also had the opportunity to write their names in katakana. Everyone went home with art work and a smile. Click here for CLUB PROGRAM PICS.
We meet the first Tuesday of the month, September thru May to enjoy the arts of Asia - with an emphasis on ikebana. We'd love to have you join us. Please see below for details.
Classes in the art of Japanese Flower Arranging are currently held at the
Trini Mendenhall Community Center
1414 Wirt Road
That is the motto of Ikebana International. II is a world wide organization with over 265 chapters. We are a vibrant club and celebrated our 60th anniversary last year.
Our club logo is the cherry blossom.
One of the benefits of Full Membership is a subscription to II's quarterly magazine. Every edition has a focus on a flowering material plus photos from the different schools using that chosen material. Articles on Japanese arts and small towns are also included. This is not a blog nor a zine. This is a beautiful magazine filled with professional photos of arrangements. Enjoy members.
We have 2 levels of membership.
Membership at all levels supports the study of ikebana in Houston.
Houston is a great city to develop your interest in Japanese flower arranging. Five of the major ikebana schools have teachers offering classes and workshops in our city and surrounding areas. Join us for monthly programs or contact an ikebana teacher and start your lessons. Check out what we do in Class Arrangements.
