A series of standard textbooks are used to guide you through the basic learning of Sogetsu Ikebana.
You begin lessons with learning several styles called “kakei” （花型). With “kakei,” you will learn the basic rules and techniques for composing shapes, as well as familiarizing yourself with various kinds of plants and understanding their characteristics. “Sogetsu Textbook 1・2” covers this part.
Once you have learned the basics by studying different styles, you are ready to deepen your understanding of Ikebana and express your own ideas freely, by focusing on three important elements; Line, Color, and Mass. “Sogetsu Textbook 3・4” is used to guide you on this stage.
