British Flowers Week 2022
To celebrate British Flowers Week 2022, the Garden Museum will be running special floral installations event from 9th to 13th June. Five show-stopping days of immersive floral displays created by the country’s best florists will wow visitors to this year’s exhibition which has the theme of The Future, with a focus on sustainability and an environmentally-friendly approach.
In partnership with New Covent Garden Market, the event unites florists, flower growers and flower lovers in a celebration of British-grown flowers and the immense creative talent in floral design to be found across the country.
This year, the event at the Garden Museum will see five top British florists – Frida Kim, Harriet Parry, Kate Wren Flowers, McQueens Flowers and Wagner Kreusch – creating sculptural installations with seasonal, sustainably-sourced, British-grown flowers, arranged using environmentally friendly materials and methods.
Frida Kim’s ethereal arrangements are underpinned by a reverence for nature that began in her earliest year, which were spent growing up surrounded by the unspoilt beauty of the Korean countryside.
Harriet Parry combines her love of flowers and nature and with a background in Fine Art, she produces playful pieces conceived as works of art. She works with flowers across various artistic disciplines, playing close attention to detail, colour and texture.
Kate Wren Flowers is founded by Kate Kashiri. Growing up in the vibrant heat of Zimbabwe, the garden was her happy place. Filled with marigolds and wild foliage, Kate loved spending time outside among the flowers. Working with flowers is a way for her to connect with nature.
McQueens Flowers is one of the world’s most admired luxury floral design brands with a reputation for creating memorable floral designs in 5-star hotels such as Claridge’s in London and The Peninsula in New York.
Wagner Kreusch is a London based florist born in Brazil and best known for his long career dedicated to teaching floristry and his graphic and sculptural work highly inspired by contemporary Ikebana.
British Flowers Week is a week-long celebration of the wealth and variety of the best British cut flowers, foliage and plants. It aims to showcase great British flowers through British floristry and raise awareness of which British flowers are in season.
