We had such a wonderful time and immediately felt welcomed! The Ikebana class was very well structured, giving many insights into this beautiful art before actually experiencing it with Kimi's kind guidance.
Fantastic experience, Kimmi is a kind, encouraging teacher and I learnt so much about the philosophy behind Ikebana... I would highly recommend!
The class was very enjoyable, learned not only from Ikebana but also some Japanese culture and history. Makes me want to look into this art form even more. Kimmy was extremely nice to us we had a great time learning and doing.
