Ikebana- Collaborative Practice Models is a presentation of visualisations which arose from collaborative interdisciplinary design workshops at Manchester School of Art. Ikebana, the Japanese Art of flower arranging was hacked as a design methodology to develop the communication of learning within collaborative design practice. Ikebana workshops involved the arrangement and contemplation of branches and flowers in three dimensional forms, to help students describe and reflect upon their collaborative relationships. The three models presented describe different styles of collaboration including: crossing forms, branching styles and creative abrasion. Ikebana can be used as a teaching tool to support teaching, learning and assessment.
