Ikebana flower arranging

What you'll do

Want to seriously impress your friends with an unusual skill? Thinking about brightening up your home with a gorgeous bouquet? Head over to Clifton's East Village cafe.

Your knowledgeable host Camila will take you on a journey, where you learn about the ancient Japanese art of floral arranging: Ikebana.

Ikebana means 'living flowers'. This Japanese art form aims to bring out flower's innate qualities while using other materials to convey beauty and emotion. Camila will show you where to begin in producing this art form's sculpture-like designs.

To get you started, you will be provided with an array of seasonal, swoon-worthy flowers and materials to make your arrangement. Camila will encourage you, guide you and provide inspiration, as you find yourself getting immersed into this art form. This evening experience is a soothing way to unwind after a long day, reconnect with your creativity and get swept up making a mesmerising design.

For the cherry on top of a beautiful experience, East Village cafe's delicious vegan cakes will be provided as snacks, along with a welcome glass of Prosecco. Guests can take home an East Village canvas bag, floral sheers, a bowl vase and a kenzan (flower pin holder).

A photo backdrop set-up will provide the perfect place to take pictures of your spectacular arrangements before they take centre stage in your home.
