Christiane, who is German, started her love affair with flowers more than 30 years ago while living in England. She took a three years’ City and Guild course in floral art followed by a 2 year floristry course to learn some of the tricks of the trade.
Her husband’s job took them to HK in 1994. It was in HK where Christiane’s interest in Ikebana was born. During her eight happy years she was a member of Ikebana International HK Chapter and attended many workshops particularly of the Sogetsu and Ikenobo Schools. Coming to Singapore 12 years ago, the first thing she did was join the Singapore Chapter where subsequently she served on the committee for five years.
For the past 10 years Christiane has studied Ikenobo ikebana with Dr Lim and reached Grade 5 – Kasho. She is also a member of the Singapore Sogetsu Association as well as the Singapore Flower Club, the Floral Designers Society (Singapore) and the World Flower Council. Whenever possible she attends workshops both in ‘Western’ and different schools of Ikebana.
Christiane is the Founder Chairman of the Hong Kong Association of Flower Arranging Societies, is a qualified floral art judge and is a regular contributor of articles to Flora Magazine International. She enjoys travelling and attends as many floral art competitions and exhibitions as time allows. Over the years she won many medals including 6 at the Chelsea Flower Show. Additionally she likes to take photos and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and the joy of being involved with floral art. Believing firmly in ‘Friendship through Flowers’ she feels blessed to have friends in many parts of the world.
Learn the art of Ikebana and interesting floral skills at workshops conducted by our talented members. These workshops are suitable for first timers and can be held at your premises.
