Held at Empire Tower in Bangkok, the event provided an opportunity for Webster students to not only learn a new skill, but also make a meaningful contribution to the preparations for the Royal Cremation of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

Scheduled for 25-29 October 2017, the Royal Cremation has been declared a public holiday to allow the general population to take part in these important proceedings. On the day of the cremation, the body of the late King will be moved to the royal crematorium where the cremation will take place. It is anticipated that King Bhumibol’s final journey will be followed by mourners from both Thailand and abroad.

By making cremation flowers at the university, Webster students and staff were able to show their respect and admiration for King Bhumibol. The activity was also an opportunity for students to show solidarity and support for their Thai colleagues and the general Thai population. Designed in a number of distinctive styles, the different flower styles all hold specific importance in the incredible life of King Bhumibol.
