Japanese floristry techniques inspire free public workshops at International Bouquet Competition

Three free and public workshops inspired by Japanese flower arranging techniques will be taking place alongside Monaco’s 55th International Bouquet Competition in early May. 

Though the Garden Club of Monaco has chosen a ‘Seas and Oceans’ theme for this year’s International Bouquet Competition, which will be held on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th May, it is Japan and its flower arrangement arts that will feature at the event’s three public workshops. 

On the Sunday, florists of all ages and abilities will be able to watch masters of Ikebana, orchid propagation and Bonsai at work during a series of free-to-attend demonstrations at the Yacht Club de Monaco.

The workshops will be held between 11am and 1pm, and will be led by renowned experts from the world of floristry and plant care. 

The entries to the main event, the International Bouquet Competition, will also be on display at the Yacht Club de Monaco on the Saturday, from 6pm to 7.30pm, and on the Sunday, from 9.30am to 6pm. Entry is free.    

There is still time to get your name down as a competitor; the deadline for registrations is Friday 26th April. Email gardenclub@monaco.mc for more information.
