.: Welcome to our site
This is the site for the Illinois Prairie Chapter of the Ikenobo Ikebana Society of America. Here you will find information on our chapter including workshops, newsletters, and membership information.
Our purpose is to foster, develop, and enhance the avocation of the Ikenobo Ikebana School of Flower Arranging. Through the flower way, by carefully observing how plants grow and arranging ikebana, we discover new relationships with nature, others and ourselves. Our membership is diverse, with local members, those from out of state, from different countries and cultures, men and women.
We hope you enjoy your visit and that you can join us at one of our events.
