26 September 2016 • Wild Floristry Workshop on the Merri Creek in Northcote

We had a beautiful evening at the Wild Floristry Workshop, the teachers were amazing and very knowledgeable. Everyone was welcoming and made us non-creative types feel very comfortable. We went home with 2 lovely arrangements and armed with everything we need to continue foraging and practice sustainable floristry. And to top it off we had a belly full of delicious wine and cheese! I would highly recommend for a lovely evening with a friend or relative.

Had an absolutely awesome time at the Wild Floristry workshop. Walking in to the smell of fresh flowers and a table full of beautifully presented cheese, dips, and snacks was totally unexpected, and totally amazing. The class was awesome, I learned heaps and there was plenty of room for following instructions AND/OR creative freedom. I'd definitely come again. Thank you!

Absolutely wonderful class – the venue is stunning, and Laura is such an incredibly creative and considerate person, as well as a great teacher and presenter. The class is flexible so you can either follow the instructions to a T, or get your creative on and come up with your own style for flower arrangements. Learning about sustainability in floristry was fantastic to – it's so great to be able to understand how to have beautiful flowers in the home without causing terrible damage to the environment. Laura put together an amazing spread of food and wine, and coupled with the tunes this set the tone for an amazing night. I walked away with a full belly, a beautiful posy and jar arrangement, and a happy heart. Thank you very much for having me! I definitely recommend and I'll definitely come again! x
