IKEBANA Show and Workshop

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, the Japanese Culture and Language Centre e.V. will introduce you to some of Japan's most representative traditional cultures. The shows and workshops will take place at SZENERIE creativespace at COLOSSEO on the festival grounds (Walther-von Cronberg-Platz).

All shows and workshops are free of charge!


Not all IKEBANA is the same. There are over 300 different schools. The three largest, IKENOBO, OHARA and SOGETSU, will jointly organise an event with two shows. In the first show, three artists will work with the same plant material. In the second show, the choice of material is free. In this way, it will become clear how the schools differ from each other. Uwe Jacob represents IKENOBO, Regina Oberndorfer the OHARA School and Katharina Tack the SOGETSU School. All artists are active as Ikebana teachers in the Frankfurt area.

Date: 13 August 2022, 2:00 p.m.

Place: SZENERIE creativespace at COLOSSEO, Walther-von-Cronberg-Platz 6, 60594 Frankfurt am Main (on the Main Matsuri grounds)



What is IKEBANA? You will find out in a one-hour workshop. This workshop is organised by three Ikebana schools in Frankfurt. Participation is free of charge. The plants and a container will also be provided. You can take both with you after the workshop.

Date: 13 August 2022, 4:00 p.m.

Location: SZENERIE creativespace at COLOSSEO, Walther-von-Cronberg-Platz 6, 60594 Frankfurt am Main (on the Main Matsuri grounds).
