On March 30, 2019, the Ikebana International Miami Chapter 131 will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary at the Pinecrest Gardens with events open to the public. You are invited to join us in this celebration. There will be a luncheon and demonstration of flower arranging by our guest Ikebana professor, Bruce Wilson. Mr. Wilson holds one of the highest teacher’s rank given by the Saga Goryu School of Ikebana which is one of the oldest in Japan.
Ikebana, the Japanese art of floral design and arrangement, dates to the 6th century and is one of the most important cultural elements that is uniquely Japanese. Ikebana International (I.I.) founded in 1956 has the objective of promoting mutual understanding and friendship between Japan and other countries through the introduction of ikebana and related Japanese traditional and cultural arts. Over the years, our chapter members have been sharing their love of ikebana and other aspects of Japanese culture throughout the South Florida community, living the motto of “Friendship through Flowers.”
