A program of the Fallingwater Institute
Join teaching artists from Sogetsu Pittsburgh for a creative exploration at the intersection of art and nature, held at Wright’s masterwork of organic architecture. This special ikebana workshop will be held on Fallingwater’s Pottery Terrace, led by Sogetsu Pittsburgh’s founder and principal teachers Reiko Nakajima and Atsumi Sewell.
Get inspiration during a guided tour of Fallingwater, which includes an extraordinary installation of ikebana arrangements created by members of Sogetsu Pittsburgh. The workshop will also include an introduction to the modern Sogetsu school of ikebana founded in 1927, a demonstration of the process of crafting an ikebana arrangement, followed by participants creating their own arrangements with guided instruction. Surrounded by the distinctive setting of Fallingwater, both architecture and nature will serve as inspiration.
Registration fee is $100 and includes materials and equipment, which are yours to keep, including select cut flowers and branches sourced from Fallingwater’s landscape.
