As with any art form, you need special equipment for Ikebana flower arranging. Three times a year we feature a special ginza (shopping) opportunity for our members and guests to purchase much needed supplies for this special art form.
It is important that our membership support the ginza as the profit we make in the ginza goes to support our monthly programs and our exhibit. As you might expect it takes a lot of effort to bring the ginza to our membership on these three occasions. Please make an effort to attend these meetings and to support your ginza. Go ahead, buy a new container – you deserve it!
2017-18 Ginza dates:
- November 1, 2017
- Jan 10, 2018 (last chance before the exhibit)
- February 15-17, 2018 (during the exhibit)
- April 4, 2018 – member ginza
Over the years, we have found that the best containers and other Ikebana equipment comes from our members. If you have containers and other Ikebana supplies that you would like to donate to the ginza (sometimes we buy them), please contact Nancy Peterson.
Ikebana teachers – if there are particular items you would like the ginza to carry for your students, please contact Nancy Peterson.
The ginza can always use your donations of shopping bags, bubble wrap and Ikebana magazines!
