About us

English
Ikebana International Copenhagen Chapter no. 93 (IICC) was founded in 1965 by Inie Quaade. The Chapter president and the other ikebana teachers are mainly educated within the Sogetsu school. The members of the association meet once a month.
The annual program is composed in advance with various themes. Each meeting begins with an ikebana demonstration for inspiration. The members then make their own arrangements and receive constructive critique from the instructor.
We used to meet at Hellerup Sognegård at Hellerup Church, but from September 2020 we have moved our meetings to Tokai University European Center in Vedbæk. Unfortunately we have had to cancel our meetings until the COVID-19 situation has been solved.

Ikebana International Copenhagen Chapter no. 93 (IICC) blev grundlagt i 1965 af Inie Quaade. Formanden (Chapter president) og de øvrige ikebana-undervisere er overvejende uddannet indenfor Sogetsu-skolen. Medlemmerne af foreningen mødes en gang om måneden.
Årsprogrammet er sammensat på forhånd med forskellige temaer. Hvert møde indledes med en ikebana-demonstration med forklaringer til inspiration for deltagerne. Medlemmerne laver derefter deres egne arrangementer, som de modtager konstruktiv kritik af.
Vi har indtil fornylig holdt vores møder i Hellerup Sognegård ved Hellerup Kirke, men fra september 2020 har vi fået mulighed for at holde møderne på Tokai University European Center i Vedbæk. Desværre har vi måttet aflyse vores møder indtil COVID-19 krisen er overstået.
