The clubs will take place once a week at your venue. Each lesson lasts for one hour.

The lessons will be spread over a four to eight week period and will fall in with your schedule.

This is a fun hands-on activity which allows each child/person to create one Ikebana arrangement to take home every week. This activity helps children and adults, to concentrate deeply, enhancing their creativity and their interest in nature. It helps them to expand their imagination and to learn more about the delicate environment around them.

Students/Participants will experience:

  • Fun, creative hands-on activity with natural materials
  • Self-expression
  • Deep focus
  • Grow their curiosity in Biology
  • Japanese Culture

Ikebana is the main activity for these but other Japanese activities, such as Japanese language, calligraphy, green tea ceremony and sushi making, can also be included. On the last day, there is always a reward day with a special surprise!
