Description

Ikebana Interantional Chapter No.1. is pleased to present a demonstration by Bruce Wilson of Saga Goryū Ikebana

Building a World of Grace in a World of Nature

Bruce is a Professor Emeritus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland, where he was a founder of the College’s Asian Studies program and for many years taught a seminar entitled “Japanese Arts and Ways,” which introduced students to the concept of the Japanese arts as forms of spiritual discipline. The “laboratory” for his course was a series of ikebana workshops.

Bruce was first introduced to the practice of ikebana by Kyoko Ueda of the Ikenobo School. He then for many years studied Kiku with Georgie Davidson, and became a teacher in that school. He now holds the rank of Seikyoju with the Saga Goryū School in Kyoto.

He has exhibited or given presentations at a variety of venues, including the U.S. National Arboretum; the Japan-America Society of Washington, DC; the National Geographic Society; the Walters Gallery, Hillwood Gardens, and the Washington National Cathedral. He has exhibited abroad in Kyoto, Japan; Dusseldorf, Germany; and Amman, Jordan.

Bruce offers instruction in ikebana both on Capitol Hill in Washington and on his farm in Dameron, Maryland.
