A true highlight on the floral calendar each year…an entire day amongst flowers!
We will be spoilt using 100% farm grown flowers from Riverdale Farm Albany and will spend the day creating together. Attendees will be hands on all day creating a large scale floral installation piece as a group as well as individual compote centrepieces and hand tied rambling bouquets.
Riverdale Farm is home to a flower farm on a 100 acre property located on the south coast of Western Australia on the banks of the Kalgan River near Albany. Helen Leighton from Riverdale farm will be providing all the flowers for the event and will be around to answer all your flower variety and gardening questions too. Helen’s gardens are overflowing with varied and interesting floral material. It is a rare thing to be able to work with farm grown flowers will all their scents, natural movement and delicate textures. There will be a bounty of summery garden blooms, and interesting local product. You’ll work with and be inspired by the seasons best, including an absolute abundance of fragrant garden roses….such joy!
Each attendee will create their own arrangement and bouquet to take home with personal instruction from Debra as well as enjoy working alongside your floral friends to create the large scale installation piece.
We will love photographing the floral heaven we’ve created in the stunning light filled federation hall in North Perth with its generous spaces, arched windows and period detailing.
Enjoy a delicious lunch, wine and refreshments throughout the day and your beautiful compote vessel, all flowers, ribbons and floral snips are yours to keep.
Suitable for total beginners through to industry professionals keen to experience working with farm grown blooms and creating just for the pure joy of it all.
