Ikebana classes for beginners in London

My Ikebana courses, Nyumon I and Nyumon II, are suitable for complete beginners and provide a solid foundation in basic Ikenobo Ikebana styles and techniques. Students study Moribana, Nageire and Free style, using a variety of seasonal materials. My weekday Ikebana courses comprise six, one hour Ikebana classes, usually  spread over six weeks.  I also hold Saturday Ikebana classes when students can study two or three one hour lessons together on two or three Saturdays over a six week course.
