We are a bunch of passionate flower folk who have come together to spread our love of floral design and to share our skills and industry knowledge by offering a range of floral classes and short courses on an ongoing, seasonal (3 monthly) basis.

The school is currently based on-site at Sydney Markets, Flemington – a hop, step and jump away from our happy place... Sydney Flower Markets!
