How to Study Sogetsu Ikebana

The standard Sogetsu Textbooks, which consist of “Sogetsu Textbook 1・2” , “Sogetsu Textbook 3・4” and “Sogetsu Textbook 5” are used in the lessons. They cover all the necessary basics for beginners to enjoy acquiring skills through actual interaction with flowers, deepen their understanding of the plant materials, and eventually master a high level of self-expression through flowers.

Curriculum 5: Technique and Creation

30 Lessons in about 10 months.
After completing all the studies of the four curricula, lessons continue for acquisition of a Teacher’s Diploma (to be officially certified as Sogetsu teacher). At this stage, the curriculum composed of the four key words “Technique,” “Materials,” “Placement,” and “Creation” learned to get a more confident foundation of skills, knowledge, and greater creativity. At the same time, training is required to gain mental preparedness as a teacher. Upon completion of Curriculum 5, application can be made for Teacher’s Diploma Fourth Grade (the first stage of teacher’s diploma), a Hand-carved Kanban/Name board, and Hand-carved Sekisatsu/Nameplate.
