Ikebana for Gardeners

June 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Claire McCaughey will demonstrate how to make Ikebana flower arrangements incorporating materials from the garden and the florist. Claire will talk about the defining characteristics of Ikebana vs Western flower arranging as well as the growing popularity of Ikebana world-wide.
Claire McCaughey began taking Ikebana lessons in 2007 after a chance encounter in a Japanese ceramics shop. She currently holds a 2nd Grade Sanyo Teacher Diploma in the Sogetsu School of Ikebana. Her love of Ikebana is very connected to her life-long love of plants and gardening. She has formal horticulture training with certifications in Landscape Design and Sustainable Urban Horticulture from the University of Guelph. In addition, she is a member of Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton as well as being a gardening professional.
This will be an in-person presentation at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 1606 Fisher Ave., parking at rear and on the street.
Claire’s presentation will also be live broadcast on the OHS YouTube Channel:
There is no registration required. A recording will be available for OHS members only, for 14 days after the presentation. Please consider supporting the future activities of the OHS through renewing your membership or joining for $15/yr, or through a donation at
