Join us!

You have an opportunity to study this ancient and modern art form with the Illinois Prairie Chapter Ikenobo Ikebana Society of Floral Art. Through the flower way, by carefully observing how plants grow and arranging ikebana, we discover new relationships with nature, others and ourselves. 

Chapter members may enroll in the Ikenobo Ikebana School of Flower Arranging in Kyoto, Japan, and work towards obtaining beginner through advanced diplomas. Members have an opportunity to attend workshops with visiting professors from Japan, and every three years Kyoto Headquarters sponsors an Ikenobo tour to Japan, including three days of lessons from Senior Professors in Kyoto. 

Whether you are new to ikebana or working on an advanced diploma, we welcome you. Join us and be part of the brilliant future of ikenobo.
