Sogetsu School

SogetsuSogetsu School established by Sofu Teshigawara, the grandfather of the present iemoto, Akane Teshigawara, celebrates its 70th anniversary in 1997.

The founder, Sofu Teshigawara, with his revolutionary approach, had broken traditional ties with his contributions to the world of ikebana. His daughter, Kasumi, who became the second generation iemoto, also exhibited a dazzlingly original style.
Hiroshi Teshigawara succeeded as the third iemoto of Sogetsu School. Because of his energetic and dynamic attitude, the Sogetsu School of ikebana has been expanding.
Akane Teshigawara, the second daughter of Hiroshi Teshigawara, succeeded as the forth iemoto of the school in 2001.

Sogetsu Philosophy
SogetsuPlants are beautiful as they are. But with people's help, they can be arranged in an effective style to be even more appreciated. A Japanese theory of flower arranging has philosophy which brightens, colors, and gives life to our environment.
ikebana arrangements vary with the change of surroundings. ikebana is not difficult. Sogetsu School of ikebana believes that anyone can arrange ikebana anywhere, and with almost anything. It should be part of a lifestyle to be appreciated by many people from all over the world, rather than being considered an exclusive aspect of Japanese culture to be enjoyed by a limited number of people. Just as people are different from each other, Sogetsu School encourages ikebana students to be individual and imaginative.
The basic techniques are taught by instructors with the use of textbooks (English version on one side and Japanese on the other) all over the world.
