In August the Sakhalin Ikebana community got together to learn the Japanese art from leading teachers of five famous Ikebana schools. There was a week event with every day study held in Checkov Art Museum and a beautiful Ikebana Show.
At the classes we were explained the difference between the schools, rules and the main lines of each Ikebana arrangement. Each student's work was carefully checked by the teacher. The study was a positive experience.
The event was organized by a local government, the classes were absolutely free for us.
