Visit the Temecula Valley Museum (28314 Mercedes Street) for a free opportunity to learn about the centuries-old Japanese art of flower arranging on Saturday, January 21, 2023 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm on the second floor in the exhibit space.
Instructor Virginie Pesch and Professor Valeria Brinkers from the Sangetsu School will present and demonstrate two floral arrangements followed by a Q&A. Two signature Ikebana arrangements will be on display the same day in the exhibition room.
Valeria has been practicing Ikebana for thirty years. She graduated from the Sangetsu School of Flower Arranging, Kado Sangetsu-Ryu, as an instructor in June 1993. The Sangetsu School of Flower Arranging was established on June 15, 1972, inspired by the flower arrangements of Mokichi Okada. The instructor follows Okada’s philosophy which gives guidance on how to make arrangements that retain their life forces and are an expression of nature.
This special event is in conjunction with the Cultural Connections: Temecula and Daisen Art Exchange exhibit. The last day to view this exhibit is Sunday, January 22, 2023. Please call the museum to RSVP for this free event.
