Ikebana International Singapore Chapter 135 was founded in 1969 by Lady Bette De La Mare, wife of the then British High Commissioner to Singapore.

The Chapter members come from various schools of Ikebana such as Ikenobo, Sogetsu, Ohara, Ichiyo, Ryusei-ha, Souami. Monthly events organised by the Chapter offer the members and Ikebana lovers, a platform for interaction and learning.
