Lessons

We offer lessons for all levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced.   Regardless of your experience level, we welcome you to try any of our Level I lessons and if you have your first three Ikenobo lessons, you are welcome to try our Level II lessons. 

Click here for Level I and Level II lesson details.  All lessons are taught by Stephanie English and Marcia Norberg.  In most lessons, you will hear a lecture and view a demonstration of the subject arrangement and then create the lesson arrangement with critique by the sensei.  The 2nd arrangement is the same as the first style but with different materials.  You create the 2nd arrangement on your own and again receive a critique of your arrangement.   

This year the Level II lessons are designed for those who have been studying with us and have at least their first three certificates. We will follow e same 1st/2nd arrangement procedure for most of the Level II lessons as well.  

Please take a look at each lesson description and feel free to register before Oct. 1.  If you choose to register after October 1, please contact Stephanie English first to see if the class has space available.  Also, be sure to check out our FAQ’s regarding our lessons.

Please note that our Level I lessons generally sell out, especially those in Jan-March and we limit the class size to 15 students. Level II lessons are limited to 10 students.

We arrive at 11:30 AM, set up for class and make any necessary ginza purchases.  The lesson begins at 11:45AM and you are generally on your way home by 4-4:30PM. Bring a lunch or snack to enjoy while we are arranging.
