Welcome spring by learning about the Japanese art of flower arranging, Ikebana, with Mimi Santini-Ritt. Mimi will design between five and seven inspiring arrangements while sharing her in-depth knowledge of Ikenobo (the oldest school of Japanese flower arranging) and Ikebana.
Mimi Santini-Ritt has studied Ikenobo extensively in both the U.S. and in Japan for over 20 years. In February, 2020 she completed the Kyoyoka–a course of studies at the Ikenobo Central Training Institute in Kyoto and is currently enrolled in Kyoyoka-B. Mimi teaches, exhibits and demonstrates the art of Japanese flower arranging throughout the greater Boston area. She is a past president of the Ikenobo Ikebana Society of Boston. When not practicing Ikenobo, Mimi can often be found at the Museum of Fine Arts, where she does volunteer work in Egyptian Storage and Conservation.
