Vancouver Ikebana Association (Saturday)

Demonstrations will be held on Saturday from 2:00pm – 2:30pm and 4:00pm – 4:30pm in the Vancouver Buddhist Temple.

The Vancouver Ikebana Association (VIA) is a non-profit organization which features Ikebana floral arrangement displays and demonstrations. Ikebana, the Japanese word for flower arrangement, is based on certain principles of art which are recognized the world over. The love of lines, so characteristic of all Oriental art rather than the appreciation of form and colour, is perhaps the most salient feature in differentiating Japanese flower arrangement from all others.  

The VIA is an association of teachers and students from five Ikebana schools that are active in the lower mainland. They conduct classes, demonstrations, workshops, and displays at exhibitions during various community and cultural events throughout the year. The main principle of Ikebana is harmony. They aim to achieve harmony when working with various components of our floral arrangements, as well as striving for harmony when dealing with all sorts of human relationships.
