Pre-requisite: Kado: Introduction to the Way of Flowers

Kado, “The Way of Flowers”, is a creative and meditative art, a dance between nature, space, and perception. The vibrant and daring beauty of flowers wakes up the environment and compels us to see what is really before us.

By continued practice with classical Ikebana forms, Kado teaches us to see the wisdom of nature clearly, which is the same in ourselves and others. The ultimate purpose in Kado is not to make pleasant flower arrangements, but to discover joyfulness, work with obstacles, and develop respect for all things animate or inanimate.

Students who wish to study with Marcia for the full weekend, may sign up for the Saturday class as well, and receive a discount. See below. Please register in advance.

Participants who register for both the Saturday workshop on Feb. 29th  and the Sunday workshop on March 1st will be eligible for a discounted price of $220 total for the full weekend. Make a note in the comments on the registration pages.
