Ikebana International of Asheville will host an ikebana demonstration at the Folk Art Center, 382 Blue Ridge Parkway, on July 27 at 10:30 a.m. The program will focus on a freestyle arrangement using a container with two openings.

Ikebana, translated from Japanese as “living flowers,” is a flower arrangement known worldwide for its grace and beauty.

Stephanie English of the Ikenobo School, the school that is said to be the origin of ikebana, will present the program. She will offer valuable insights into how to make a freestyle arrangement in a two-opening container more successful. She will demonstrate using only one opening, both and perhaps even changing the orientation of the container for a different effect.

Guests interested in learning more about ikebana should contact Lynn Forbes, chapter president, at 828-273-2222 or lynnforbes143@gmail.com. Please RSVP with number of attendees. Social distancing will be observed, and attendees are asked to wear a face mask.
