Welcome to Ikebana International Rochester Chapter #53 here in Western New York State. We've been here for over 50 years, but this website is new and is a work in progress. Please continue to check back to see the updates and current events.
We meet on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 10:00 AM ~ 2:00 PM 7 months of the year. In addition, one month we have a garden tour and in January we celebrate the New Year by going out to a restaurant. We have no meetings the months of December, February and March due usually to inclement weather.
Our mornings begin with an ikebana workshop. We break for a brown-bag lunch (bring your own) and social time. The afternoon has a culture program that is either associated with flowers/garden or related to Japanese life or arts.
We have started to host a few evening meetings so keep an eye out for details and dates. They will also be the 3rd Thursday of a month from 7:00 - 9:00 PM.
We hold our meetings at the First Baptist Church, Hubbell Hall, 175 Allens Creek Rd, Rochester, NY 14618 (click for map)
Please come be our guest. Check the events page and email us if you would like to join us for the day...or year.
