Membership is open to anyone interested in the art of ikebana and the ideals of Ikebana International,
regardless of their previous experience.
Multiple Ikebana Schools
Ikebana International is the only organization where you can learn about many different ikebana schools.
Members get together at monthly meetings to see ikebana demonstrations, hear lectures on related topics or participate in ikebana workshops.
A member is welcome to visit other chapter programs while on their travels.
The membership is also transferable from one chapter to another at any time of the year upon presentation of a valid membership card.
Join another Chapter
A member may belong to additional chapters at reduced rates upon proof of membership of their primary chapter.
Find a Teacher
Members can obtain contact information of certified ikebana teachers that belong to the chapter, as well as information of teachers that teach virtually from another chapter.

Expand your Teaching
Teachers can gain students and be listed in the North and Central American Region’s website. Alternatively, teachers encourage their students to become members.
