Reivews

"Michiko's Ikebana-inspired flower arranging workshop was a lovely experience. We were welcomed with open arms by Michiko and Steve(store owner), and felt right at home in their store. The workshop itself was well worth every penny. Michiko spent time explaining the aesthetic principles of Ikebana, and made sure that we felt comfortable as we worked. She embraced our creativity and individuality while ensuring that we adhered to the principles of Ikebana. The cherry on top: hot green tea and delicious chocolates. In the end, we left with our own beautiful arrangements that we shared with friends and family! I would highly encourage anyone interested in arranging to attend this workshop." - Saachi

"I personally am not too great with writing reviews.
I either like something or I don't. And I absolutely loved your class!!

I loved the flower shop and how personal and intimate you and Steve made the class.
I loved how you explained the concept of Ikebana and the arrangement you had chosen to teach that evening (it helped that purple is my favorite color:))

I would definitely go back there for another class." - Mona
