Ikebana with Irene – The art of Japanese flower arrangement

Japanese flower arrangement with Irene Moore, a teacher in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. Born in Singapore and having moved around with her family, it was in Oman where Irene was introduced to Ikebana by the wife of the Japanese ambassador in the Sultanate of Oman and then later went on to become a master in this art and is a retired board member of the London Sogetsu branch and Ikebana International Chapter. 

Contrary to the idea of floral arrangement,  Ikebana often emphasises other areas of the plan such as its stems, branches, and leaves and is considered an art form like painting, design, and sculpture. Irene ran free demonstrations from  11am, 12pm, 2pm and 3pm daily.
