Sydney Flower School

Learn + Create + Connect + Grow

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. With a range of both online and face-to-face workshops you’ll find there’s a session just for you – be it a one-off lifestyle class, a floral styling short course or our industry and event focussed professional career pathways.

It is our dream for Sydney Flower School to be the go-to for all flower-loving folk looking for a network of fellow inspiring, supportive, collaborative, skilled, passionate, creative folk.

Our face-to-face sessions are currently held on-site at Sydney Markets, Flemington – a hop, step and jump away from our happy place... Sydney Flower Markets!
