We are pleased to announce a new partnership with The Dōjin Japanese Arts Society, a newly founded non-profit dedicated to building understanding and community through the appreciation of Japanese cultural arts and traditions.
To launch the Dōjin Arts program series, we are pleased to host an exhibition of ikebana arrangements by members of the Sogetsu Vancouver Branch (Sogetsu School of Ikebana) in our tea room space at SaBi Tea Arts.
Please join us for a bowl of matcha and traditional sweet as we celebrate these sister art forms that flourished under the influence of Zen Buddhist aesthetics and philosophy during the Higashiyama era (late 15th century). Members of Dōjin Arts and the Sogetsu School of Ikebana will be available to chat and answer questions about their organizations.
To allow visitors time and space to view the flower arrangements, this will be a relaxed, open house setting, not a formal tea service. Donations in support of The Dōjin Japanese Arts Society are welcomed.
