Ikebana (生け花, "living flowers") is the Japanese art of flower arrange-ment, also known as kadō (華道, the "way of flowers").

Yvette Franklin, Ojai resident and current President of Ventura County Potters' Guild, will demonstrate the art form of Ikebana for the Guild's January Program. As a student of Sogetsu Ikebana, Franklin will demonstrate a basic upright moribana arrangement and share her studies of the history of Ikebanal She has been a collector of Ikebana ceramic containers for years and will bring several styles to admire. Franklin hopes to inspire her audience to make their own containers and arrangements for future enjoyment.
Kevin Wallace, Director of the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts will talk about the theme "The Natural World" for Ventura County Potters' Guild annual juried show. The show is August 22 through October 3, 2015.
