Sydney Flower School

Aspire + Learn + Create + Enjoy

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 one-off lifestyle classes + 6 week floral styling short courses + industry related courses for floral & event professionals.

It is our ultimate aspiration that our flower school become Sydney’s premier informative, inclusive, inspiring, supportive, collaborative, creative go-to space for all floral loving folk.

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

This technique can also be adapted to a fabulous table runner to decorate the centre of your Christmas table.
