WELCOME TO SAN DIEGO WABI CHAPTER OF THE OHARA SCHOOL OF IKEBANA

Ikebana

Welcome to the San Diego Wabi Chapter of the Ohara School of Ikebana. Devoted to the study of ikebana, as taught by the Ohara School of Ikebana, and to the principles of tranquility and friendship through flowers, the chapter welcomes everyone interested in the art of ikebana and the study of Japanese culture as expressed though ikebana.

The Chapter has a membership of more than 100 people who enjoy learning the art of ikebana as formulated by the Ohara school of Ikebana. The chapter has an annual flower show, which is staged in Balboa Park and is free to the public, and teachers in the chapter also stage workshops and demonstrations throughout San Diego County. Special events and classes are provided for chapter members.

The chapter has chosen the blue hydrangea to represent the desires of its members to promote harmony and friendship among its members. The theme of the chapter is "tranquility with flowers." We welcome you to join us in this pursuit of harmony and friendship through the art of ikebana.

• Promote, harmonize, and share the friendship and creative art of ikebana.
• Introduce Japanese flower arrangement techniques and culture as a community service through annual flower shows, demonstrations, and workshops presented by society members.
