Ikenobo Ikebana


Ikenobo Ikebana

Ikenobo Ikebana is an exhibition of contemporary ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arrangement, by Aya Shibata, President of Ikenobo Ikebana Society, Sydney Chapter.

Ikebana is not merely a floral decoration but a living art and discipline, generally conducted in silence, which contemplates on the beauty of the natural environment and human connection with nature.

This Japanese art form is said to have originated from Ikenobo school which has a history tracing back over 550 years ago to Kyoto’s Rokkakudo temple. Before ikebana solidified as an art form, Buddhist monks made floral offerings to the temple’s Buddhist altar. They later experimented with new approaches to flower arrangement and eventually developed not only techniques but also the philosophy behind ikebana. These teachings were passed down through Ikenobo and other schools which branched off and continue to guide contemporary ikebana.

Born in Fukuoka, Aya Shibata started practicing Ikenobo Ikebana from aged ten through the influence of her grandmother, who was an ikebana teacher. After graduating from high school, Shibata studied graphic design before moving to Kyoto to train as an ikebana teacher. Her background in graphic arts, combined with her passion for floral art, formed her distinctive style and approach to ikebana.

Now based in Australia, Shibata is President of Ikenobo Ikebana Society, Sydney Chapter and teaches ikebana.
