Annual program 2020-2021 (English)

Please note that our meetings from October to December 2020 have been cancelled due to the Corona (COVID-19) situation. From Saturday January 9 we will demonstrate by video and give feedback by mail.

Dear Members,
Welcome to a new season!
Our Ikebana meetings take place every first Saturday each month at 13.00 – 15.30 unless otherwise notified.
Every meeting will include a demonstration for inspiration and learning. After the demonstration members create their own Ikebana arrangements. The arrangements will be reviewed in a positive spirit by the Ikebana masters.
The meetings take place at Tokai University European Center, Vedbæk Strandvej 476, 2950 Vedbæk
