A floral demostration by Senior Teacher of Ikebana from the Sogetsu School Mrs. Nalini Kapadia had given a demostration for fellow Sogetsu Members and staff on 10th July 2012 at the Juhu Gymkhana. The Council General of Japan was also present for the demonstration.
The demostration highlighted how to make different varieties of bouquets for different occasions especially outlined for India and how to use techniques of Ikebana that can be adapted and used for any bouquet that can add a sense of style and finesse to the final product.
A selection of a few basic flowers that are available throughout the year with all florists and also available to the general public through their nearby floral markets were used. Mrs. Kapadia started out with explaining simple ways of starting off a bouquet and how the foliage and fillers are to be used to get the final product that is elegant and also easy to make. The demostration went on for about 1 hour and a few designed arrangements were made with different vases and baskets along with different flowers with accessories as given below.
