Arranging with Weeds (17 PM) - Zoom Workshop

Workshop - Arranging with Weeds
First Zoom Session: Thursday July 29th

Second Zoom Session: Thursday August 5th
17:00 PM CEST (Brussels) 


The definition of a weed is a plant considered undesirable in a particular situation, "a plant in the wrong place."  Botanical, there is not such a category called weeds. A plant that is a weed in one context is not a weed when growing in a situation where it is wanted, and where one species of a plant is a valuable crop plant, another species in the same genus might be a serious weed. 

But nevertheless, what you consider a weed is still a plant, and maybe that plant has the potential to become the protagonist in your next Ikebana arrangement. 

In this workshop, we have a close look at what you consider to be weed and what kind of features these plants have.  The goal is to highlight these interesting features in an exciting Ikebana arrangement and that nobody guesses that you used weed. 


Each of the workshops is hands-on, and the purpose is that you make an arrangement. There is a maximum of 15 participants per workshop.
