Haiku & Japanese Art of Pressed Flowers (Oshibana)
A Haiku For You
Doves coo in the trees
Flowers sprout petals with ease
Dreary clouds bow to spring
Join us in celebrating the beauty of spring by experiencing the fascinating Japanese art of Oshibana. Oshibana is the technique of using pressed flowers and plants in art. It has been used in Japan since the 16th century, and was popularized in Europe and the United States in the 1800s. It became especially popular among well to do Victorian women, who used it as a way to express themselves. Oshibana is a floral collage that can be used in pictures, scrapbooks and even candles. In this exploratory candle class, you will be creating your own designs and crafting your own floral masterpiece inside unique glassware.
