a private, modern floral education experience

The floral education I wish I had

In 2017 I spent around $10k and 6 full-time months getting formally qualified as a nationally-accredited florist - yet 99% of what I do in my own wedding business has been self-taught.

I always knew from the get-go that I wanted to have my own wedding business (in fact, I launched my business the week after I graduated from my course!). I wanted to do things 'the right way' - and at the time, there were no real floral training alternatives.

Now don't get me wrong, there is a time and place for formal education - and if you want to learn the traditional foundations of floristry, or want to go down more of the retail floristry path or work for a retailer, the formal qualification is probably best to do.

But if you are like me, and have the dream of working in the wedding industry creating modern floral designs, perhaps your time and money would be best placed into a different floral education experience - one that will teach you a more modern approach (AND you'll get some amazing content from too!)

Want to learn wildly romantic floral design?

Do you have the dream of making money for flowers, and have the courage to pursue creativity? 

My 1:1 workshops are an intimate educational experience, designed to help you learn about my approach to creating wildly romantic floral designs for weddings. 

This workshop is a perfect for any creative looking to fulfil their creative heart while enhancing their floral design skill set. We will dive deep into choosing floral ingredients, creating unique colour palettes and using movement and dimension to create elegantly ethereal designs.

The workshop can be customised to your specific floral vision. Choose your very own subject material from bouquet designs, arbours, buttonholes, and centrepieces.

you've got a floral dream, but don't know where to start.

Sarah took the time to get to know me and my business goals, and tailored the entire workshop experience to me. The workshop exceeded my already high expectations in every single way. With Sarah’s expert guidance, I was amazed at what I was able to create... Now I have beautiful professional imagery to use in marketing my new business. Sarah clearly has a calling not only for flowers, but also for teaching. She is kind, encouraging, and I know that I have gained a mentor and supporter going forward far beyond the workshop.

Questions & Answers

Do I need any prior experience with floristry?

Absolutely not! I have taught a student who had 0 floral experience and had never stepped foot into a flower market - and she crushed it! I'll walk you through the floral ingredients, choosing colours, placing the order and all of the basics of floral design.

Will you choose the concept for me?

I want the concept to reflect who you are - and if you plan on starting a business, what your brand will be! My students choose to learn from me because they want to learn my signature 'wildly romantic' style, but I always get students to add inspiration to our shared board, and I'll help you identify the style details, ingredients and colours during our planning session. You'll also get a glimpse into my selection and substitution process on market day!

When is payment due?

I require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking. This secures the date, covers planning time and hire of the studio and photographer. I require full payment 28 days prior to the workshop as this is when I'll place flower orders.

Can I choose what I learn?

Of course! When booking in, I'll ask you what items you would like to learn on the day, and I'll let you know what is achievable within the allocated timeframe. The most popular option includes a bridal bouquet, centrepiece and arbour installation, however I can provide a quote for a customised workshop package.

Can I bring a friend/s?

The pricing is based on 1:1 floral design education, however if you can organise your own group (or bring a friend) we can discuss a special arrangement to lower the investment for each person. You must tell me when booking if you'd like to make a pair or group booking - otherwise, only yourself will be able to attend on the day.

Do you offer group workshops?

I am not currently offering group floral design workshops however am considering planning either a day workshop or 2 day retreat in 2022 if there is enough interest. If you are interested, please email me at to register your interest!

The workshops are based in Brisbane, so if you are unable to travel to the area you may be wondering if there are other options. At this stage I'm not offering virtual options, however I do have plans to record floral tutorials to add to my digital shop! 

Will we cover any business education?

During our 45 minute lunch session you are welcome to ask any business-related questions you like, however the day will really be focussed on the floral training element. I offer special pricing for business coaching add-ons for 1:1 floral students that can be booked after the call.

Do you do virtual workshops?

what do I get to keep?

You'll get to keep any designs you've made as well as any leftover flowers that have been purchased for the workshop, so you can go home and continue practicing in the days following the workshop!
