2 day workshop: Saturday & Sunday, October 14 & 15, 1 — 4pm

Although the Japanese flower arrangement (Ikebana) is well known, floral art in Korea predates the Japanese tradition and was practiced as early as the 14th century by Confucian masters and women in tea houses. Join MAWA for a hands-on exploration of its history, philosophy and materiality, with all flowers provided. This ancient artform combines insight into flowers’ beauty, colour and line, with the intent of “refreshing our minds and improving our sincerity”. The Hongs hope that this workshop “will help you to practice the Floral Art which is composed, calm, prudent, and full of pleasure to advance the theory of the artform in harmony with real emotional life.”

Jeonghee Hong (Jenny Hong) is a Master Korean floral artist who has studied and worked in the traditional “Oriental Style” for more than 35 years. In 2000 she immigrated to Canada with her family where she has continued to practice both Asian and Western styles. In 2017 she received the esteemed distinction of “Independent Chief Master of Kum Yun Flower Art Association”, participated in the ART IN BLOOM exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and exhibited at an international exhibit in Seoul, Korea, with floral artists from around the world. Hong is excited to share floral art theories and techniques with Canadians to promote “harmonized mental and physical health through the celebration of nature and diverse cultures.” Her husband Sooyoung (Simon), himself an accomplished floral artist, will translate for her at this workshop.
