Sogetsu Ikebana Los Angeles Branch

Sogetsu is one of several ikebana flower arranging schools founded in Japan, but now followed by practitioners throughout the world. The Sogetsu School was founded by the late headmaster Sofu Teshigahara in 1927. Sofu developed a school of ikebana that was deeply rooted in Japanese tradition, yet embraced the evolving requirements of the modern age. The current headmaster, Akane Teshigahara, is the fourth generation in a succession of family members to lead the school. Her beautiful, bold and delicate works have been shown in exhibitions worldwide.

 

In the Spring of 1985, Sogetsu headquarters in Japan officially established the Los Angeles Branch as part of its North American Overseas Division.
