Sogetsu Foundation headquartered in Tokyo Japan, has developed a curriculum to enable beginners to master the rich and satisfying art of ikebana or Japanese flower arranging. The curriculum is covered in two textbooks of 40 lessons each. The first text covers the basic styles and techniques. The second text helps students develop the art of free style arranging. After finishing the texts, students continue to study in order to fully develop the creative abilities and technical skills to express themselves in their arrangements. More information on the curriculum is available on the Sogetsu Foundation website.
