Our Story

Hello Sydney Flower School

Mother & daughter duo, Judith + Kylie Browne, co-founded Sydney Flower School in 2013 with the long-term aspiration of providing Sydney with a premier, inclusive, inspiring, educational, supportive, collaborative, creative go-to space for all floral loving folk.

Having worked in the Sydney floral industry for over 4 decades, all students of Sydney Flower School, whether casual, aspiring or professional, are gifted Judith’s extensive industry experience and knowledge along with her broad network of floral industry contacts.

Utilising these contacts, along with Kylie’s proficient business acumen, they have assembled a team of passionately skilled floral educators and continually strive to inspire their students via both on-trend + historically referenced, industry recognised techniques using locally sourced and seasonal products.

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

Our not-to-distant goal is to acquire our own purpose built, dedicated space to create an inviting, inspired learning environment that we can offer as a shared hub for the entire Sydney floral + creative community :)

SFS... learn + create + connect + grow
