Chabana is a simple floral arrangement displayed in the tea room. The function of chabana is to bring the beauty of nature into the tea room and to add a touch of seasonality.
The only rule to follow for this type of arrangement is to arrange flowers as they are in the field. It sounds very easy, but can be quite challenging.
This special workshop is conducted by Kimiko Gunji, Professor Emeritus of Japanese Traditional Arts and Culture and the former Director of Japan House at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and accomplished tea ceremony and ikebana instructor.
Space is limited and registration is required.
