Ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, is a disciplined art form in which the arrangement is a living thing, where nature and humanity are brought together. It is steeped in a philosophy of developing closeness with nature.

As is true of all other arts, ikebana is creative expression within certain rules of construction. Its materials are living branches, leaves, grasses, and blossoms. Its heart is the beauty resulting from colour combinations, natural shapes, graceful lines, and the meaning latent in the total form of the arrangement. Ikebana is, therefore, much more than mere floral decoration.

There are nine official ‘schools’ of Ikebana, each with their own interpretation. Since its founding, the Ichiyo School has pursued a style of flower arranging that harmonizes with the various spaces in our living environment. Unique to the Ichiyo style of ikebana is the exploration of every possible location in our daily surroundings for placing flowers. This community exhibition shows local ikebana students works, including Ichiyo, ikenobo and Sogetsu school styles and runs from 27 February to 1 March 2015.
