This beginner's lecture will provide an overview of the basic principles of the art of Japanese flower arranging, taking inspiration from the fall blooms at the Beatrix Farrand Garden. Ikebana, which emphasizes lines and curves, focuses on the careful placement of branches and a few flowers. The results of the arrangement look quiet, simple, and elegant. Arranging flowers has always been meditative and a great way to manage stress.
