While some of us are content with cramming a pre-made bouquet into recycled milk jug vases, there are those who would prefer to get a little more artistic with their floral arrangements.
In conjunction with its current exhibition, "Narrow Road to the Interior" on view now through January 12, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is holding a free event "Discover Ikebana: Japanese Flower Arranging."
This one-day demonstration will be taught by Patricia Kuffler, assistant professor of Ikebana at the Ikenobo School. Kuffler will show museum visitors how to create several styles of Japanese floral arrangements, discuss the cultural history of the medium, as well as raffle off an authentic arrangement to one lucky guest.
"Discover Ikebana: Japanese Flower Arranging" happens Saturday, November 16, at 1:30 p.m. While this event is free, reservations are required. To RSVP, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit www.smoca.org for more information.
