Taking Lessons

Beginning students of ikebana are generally first taught certain basic styles. The typical teaching method is to have the student achieve mastery by repeatedly practicing a given style with different floral and plant materials. ikebana teachers believe that this is the best way to grasp both the unique characteristics of those materials and the methods of arranging them most beautifully.

workshopInitially in a lesson, students usually arrange the materials after receiving some explanation. They then rearrange their work, based on the teacher's comments and criticism. This helps to improve the student's technical skill, as does making sketches of their own initial and final arrangements, and studying the works of others in their class and of skilled arrangers at exhibitions.

After mastering the basic styles, students advance according to that particular school's curriculum, acquiring skill in a wide variety oftraditional, modern, and free-style arrangements characteristic of that particular school.
