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!

      • Floral Styling with BYO Flowers + Vases

        Bring along your favourite vase(s) &/or container(s), an assortment of your favourite flowers and foliages and we’ll show you the tips and tricks to style them like a boss – every.single.time!

        We suggest this class is the perfect partner class to do immediately after our Sydney Flower Market Tour & Breakfast class.

        We run the tour & breakfast prior to this class & think it’s a perfect precursor as it gives you the perfect opportunity to use and style your own freshly selected/bought fresh flowers and foliages.

        - This class is open to anyone interested in learning how to arrange & style flowers for home. You do not have to have any design experience to enrol in this class. In fact, most people who take our classes have no experience.
        - Students are required to bring all florals + foliages + vases/containers. All other materials, tools & apron are provided.
        - For Work Health & Safety purpose we request all students wear fully enclosed comfortable footwear.
        - Classes are limited to 12 students & require a minimum of 4 participants to proceed. You will be contacted should enrolments not meet the minimum required number & a transfer to a future date or credit note will be offered.
