Love Flowers? Nature? Things Japanese? Time to try a hands on Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging) Class! Join us on February 27th at 6pm.

Ikebana is EXTREMELY popular in Japan! You can become a black belt in this. The head Japanese Flower Arranging honchos are men. It is also VERY creative, fun and relaxing.

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" (Japanese Flower Arranging) Teacher by nite. See his floral creations at

J. Padilla-Zamudio was studying science in Japan when he encountered "Ikebana" (Japanese Flower Arranging). He immersed himself in it and promptly got a black belt in it. Now he's made himself available to show us how it is done! You will go home with an amazing Japanese floral creation made by you.

Hope to make this a recurring Monthly Meetup Event. Come and join us! Please make sure to RSVP as the Instructor needs to trek to the Wholesale Boston Flower Market to buy us great flower material. The cost of the Class is a modest $35 which covers the flower material and instruction.

The location for the class is conveniently located in downtown Boston in Backbay. Marilyn is hosting this time in the Library Room of her condo building.

For more info go to the Japanese Flower Arranging Meetup. See

Please bring scissors to cut the plant material. Garden shears or Kitchen shears are best. Also please bring a large paper shopping bag with you in which to bring your beautiful creation home! Look forward to seeing you!
