My recently announced weekend intensive Ikebana course for June 2016 is already fully booked!
I added the June weekend to accommodate some of the many people wanting to study in a weekend format, either because they live far from Ruislip or due to work commitments. So having added June to accommodate popular demand, I now find that my September weekend intensive is filling fast.
Dates: Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th September.
I thought you might like to see some of the lovely comments I have received people who have recently attended a weekend intensive:
“Just a note to say how much I enjoyed the class last weekend and your hospitality. I learnt so much about the principles of Ikebana, and the use of flower material used for the different styles.
I managed to recreate the arrangements I did when I arrived home. May I also compliment you on the quality of plant material, you most certainly have a very good source for supplying you with extremely fresh foliage and flowers. They are still looking great in my home.” [SH, East Sussex]
“Just wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the weekend – it was truly inspiring. The flowers survived the trip home and I had as much fun recreating and in some cases creating new designs. I can’t wait to start practicing in earnest.” [ST, Reading]
Recently I have had several enquiries from people wanting to study Ikebana but who live far from London, including Spain, Ireland and various parts of the UK.
The solution? I have decided to offer weekend intensive courses. The first of these will be on 16th and 17th May, By holding the course over Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, there should be time for students to travel to and from London and with several, reasonably priced hotels nearby, a ready supply of accommodation for the Saturday night. And, of course, with central London just 40 minutes away by tube, perhaps a West End show.
