It's SUMMER! Enjoy Sake and TRY a Hands-On Creative and FUN Japanese Flower Arranging Class.
The Japanese have elevated flower arranging into an Art Form and a Form of Zen. Try an "Ikebana" (Japanese Flower Arranging) Class!
"Ikebana" is EXTREMELY popular in Japan. You can become a black belt in this. The Headmasters of Japanese Flower Arranging are men. It is also VERY creative, fun and relaxing. You will go home with a Japanese Flower Arrangement made by you.
So let's TRY IT in Boston! We are lucky that the President of Ikenobo Boston will teach the Japanese Flower Arranging Class. He's a Scientist by Day. "Ikebana" Teacher by nite.
IMPORTANT: The Instructor REQUIRES PAYMENT IN ADVANCE. (Please see below for PAYMENT OPTIONS).

J. Padilla-Zamudio was studying science in Japan when he encountered "Ikebana". He goes back regularly to Kyoto, Japan to train with his Masters.
