Woodward to teach Ikebana class at Tryon Estates

Published 9:58 am Friday, December 16, 2011

The ancient art of flower arranging known at Ikebana will be taught this winter by Ben Woodward.
Classes will begin Jan. 6 and continue for eight weeks. Students will meet at 10 a.m. on Fridays in the meeting room at Tryon Estates. Participants should bring containers and kenzans (needle holders). Dr. Woodward will supply flowers.
Ikebana arrangements are known for their beautiful simplicity. They may be compared to floral poetry.
“Ikebana arranging is very lovely in our area because of the abundance of native materials. Much can be gathered from meadows and roadsides,” said Woodward. For further information, call Woodward at 828-894-8192.
