Bringing the Outside In: An Introduction to Principles of Chabana
Workshop | September 17 | 10-11:30 a.m. | UC Botanical Garden
The great tea master Sen no Rikkyu gave us many gifts in the creation of the tea ceremony. Among the most accesible is the art called 'chabana' or tea flowers. The simple principles of this delightful art form with be taught in a single, hands on session so that you can enjoy this naturalistic beauty in your own space. Led by ceramic sculptor, tea and ikebana practioner Barbara Stevens Strauss (www.bstevensart.com) we will use garden flowers and small vases to create arrangements during the workshop. You will leave with the ability to arrange simple flowers and enhance your environment without the years of training usually required by these intricate Japanese art forms. Bring your own small vase as well- and carry exquisite beauty home!
