The local chapter of Ikebana International, a group dedicated to the art of Japanese flower arranging, hosted the program “Florida Style Ikebana,” Monday, at Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. Featured guest Richard Martel, an Ohara School Master Ikebana instructor from Toronto, demonstrated how to create a heika-style (tall) arrangement and moribana-style (water reflecting) arrangement. Martel critiqued members’ arrangements at a workshop.

The Sarasota Ikebana International chapter will hold a Holiday Luncheon Dec. 2 , at the University Park Country Club featuring “The Many Faces of Ikebana” with five schools presenting their unique styles. For info, visit
