Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging.
 
LARGO - The St. Petersburg chapter of Ikebana International will show case the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging at Pinellas County Extension during its annual exhibition on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 21 and 22.

Hana no Odori ("Dancing Flowers" in Japanese) is the theme for the group's 44th Ikebana exhibition. More than 90 arrangements will be on display during the exhibition. Society members will also be on hand to answer questions about Ikebana and to demonstrate this beautiful art that dates back to the 6th century. During the event, visitors will have the opportunity to sign up for Ikebana classes, as well as for workshops coming up in February.

On Jan. 21, event hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and demonstrations are scheduled at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. On Jan. 22, hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a demonstration at noon.

Ikebana classes are scheduled on Jan. 21 at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on Jan. 22. Cost per class is $15. Visitors interested in signing up for the classes should call 510-2490 to reserve a space; those attending either class should bring their own garden shears.

The Pinellas Extension lobby, at 12520 Ulmerton Rd., Largo, is displaying flower arrangements, books and posters on Ikebana during January.

For information, call 582-2100.
