Ikebana Scribna Floral Design
Kika was introduced to the art of flower arrangement at her early age of four in Kumamoto, Japan. In March 1989, she earned the prestigious title of RIJI, the highest degree offered by the Sogetsu School.
Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging that has been practiced since the 15th or 16th Century. It is more than being decorative, but also a spiritual process that will help develop a closeness with nature and consolidate the indoors and outdoors. The principles of this art form is minimalism, shape and line, form, humanity, aesthetics, and balance.
Kika will be answering questions about Ikebana Floral Design when she speaks to us in the general meeting.
