About Us

Sogetsu School of Ikebana, Bangalore is a branch of Sogetsu School headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. In Bangalore it was started by Mrs. Preya Ranganathan as a study group in 1986 and 1991 onwards known as a branch.

We have a membership of around 150 and we meet every month at Golden Jubilee Hall, Lalbagh and have programmes about interesting topics connected flowers and Ikebana.Members create Ikebana arrangements according to the topic. We participate in the Independence day and Republic day programmes conducted by the Mysore Horticultural Society with 50 Big, interesting and colourful Ikebana arrangements.

We have many teachers spread over this city teaching the art. We hold demonstrations to propogate the art. We would like to take this art to schools and colleges.

Once in every two years we hold exhibitions and funds raised are donated to various worthy causes.
