Annual program 2022-2023 (English)

Dear Members,

Welcome to the new Ikebana season 2022-2023. We look forward to seeing you again and hope you find the program exciting and inspiring.

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 Board of Directors reserves the right to change the program if necessary.
A reminder with information will be sent out well in advance of each meeting.

Our Ikebana meetings take place every first Saturday each month at 13.00 – 15.30 unless otherwise notified.
The meetings take place at Tokai University European Center, Vedbæk Strandvej 476, 2950 Vedbæk.
