Ikebana International of Naples

Got the DIY bug? Take a quick break from Pinterest and try your hand at Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging. Ikebana International of Naples hosts regular meetings at Moorings Presbyterian Church, as well as seminars and special events throughout the year. A tradition dating back to ancient Japanese and Buddhist traditions, there are more than 3,000 different types, or schools, of flower arranging. The Naples organization focuses on three of those. Each element of an arrangement represents a greater symbol, such as heaven, Earth and mankind. Arranging blossoms and leaves just so unites the elements in their natural hierarchy. The study of Ikebana is considered a lifelong pursuit to its most dedicated students—but new members are welcome at any time to the local group.
