Floral Event Management

Sydney Flower School is excited to announce the second offering of our Floral Event Management Course, as an opportunity for students to be involved in an upcoming ‘real-lfe’ industry event.

Starting from the mid-July the Floral Event Mangement course will run over 3 months, with classes being held on a fortnightly basis, culminating in the set up of floral displays (for Rivendell Flower Show) & dismantling.

The course gives each participant the opportunity to work as part of a real-life project team. These classes will cover everything required to design, plan & manage – not only the Rivendell Flower Show – but any large floral event of similar calibre.

Due it’s outstanding inaugural success in 2017 the Rivendell Flower Show will be held again, for the 2nd year, on Saturday 6th + Sunday 7th October 2018.

This is a public, community event showcasing floral + landscape designs, hosted in the unique heritage Thomas Walker Estate (in Concord) over one glorious weekend. The Estate has been the previous location for Lex Luthor’s mansion in Superman Returns and was included in Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby.

The Rivendell Flower Show is a combination of floral displays, floral gardens, pop up workshops & demonstrations with special guest appearances by some of Australia’s best gardening & floral personalities.

Sydney Flower School will again be designing, planning, constructing and dismantling all the floral displays on the Front Entrance of the building as well as in both the Entrance Hall & glorious formal Ballroom of Rivendell.
