Description

Come and learn the art of a wild flower crown (or wreath) using gathered, foraged and local blooms and foliage. This workshop will work with your innate creativity to craft a crown that speaks the language of flowers and is just begging to be photographed and loved. Ellie will guide you on how to make natural crowns, using no wire or florists tape – only the art of weaving and sustainable materials. Moss, foliage and twigs gathered from Ellie’s rainforest home, combined with divine seasonal blooms, you’ll create something unique and beautiful, and learn how to craft a crown with materials on hand.

About Ellie Beck

I am a creative maker, working primarily with textiles and natural materials, though I mostly go with the flow of my creativity from weaving, stitching, natural dye to flower-play, crochet and photography. I share my creative journey, parenting and slow-living lifestyle through my Instagram @petalplum – where I inspire an audience of over 115k through my daily images. I live and work from my home studio set in the rainforest in Northern NSW. I work alongside my husband, who runs Deadwood Creative: recycled skateboard jewellery & homewares.

I teach hands-on workshops in weaving, natural dye, slow-stitching, and more, as well as how-to talks on Instagram and small business. I love to collaborate and connect with my creative community, and often organise events, gatherings and talks just so we can meet each other!

I’m a mama to three (11yr old, 9yr old and 16month old) – life is full and wonderfully abundant with young children, but I still find time to enjoy moments of quiet and slow amongst the usual busy family life. I share this slow living philosophy through my Instagram and blog @petalplum.
