The Cheyenne Botanic Gardens will be kicking off 2018 programming by hosting Meghan Rowswell who will be facilitating an Ikebana workshop. Meghan is known for creating organic fiber sculptures and installations inspired by plants using found fabrics and materials. She has been showcased in galleries and art spaces all across the United States. Meghan has a background in art history and lived in northern Japan, where she studied Ikebana under Kazuko Ura. In 2014, she became a fifth level instructor of the Ohara School of Ikebana. Meghan will be teaching a 2 hour workshop where students will get a crash course on the basic principles of Ikebana. She will address, equipment, design aesthetics, proportion, angles and space all while tying into the history and theory behind Japanese floral arranging. Students will each create an Ikebana floral design to take home. Class space is limited and is $75 a person. You can register for the class at the Tilted Tulip Gift Shop.
