ABOUT THE CHAPTER:
We are a voluntary, non-profit organization aiming at spreading the art of Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement) and awareness of nature. Our chapter has held many exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations.
The Ohara School is one of the very popular and widely spread schools of Ikebana. In Hyderabad the Ohara School was started by Grand Master Horyu Meena Anantnarayan way back in 1964, inaugurated by the then Governor Pattam Nana Prllar with very few members.
In 1983 she started Ohara study group which was a prelude to chapter. Through her dedication she was able to start Ohara Chapter in 1988. Since then the chapter has become very active and has held many exhibitions, conducted workshops and had demonstrations and very interesting programs. We are in proud possession of our own premises. At present the chapter is headed by HOSHO USHA BHAGIA, the President of the chapter. The Hyderabad Chapter has 350 members and conducts monthly programs, workshops, demonstrations etc.
