For the budding florists and ambitious DIY brides among you, this floral installation workshop with our friends at Pomp & Splendour will be right up your street.
The autumn workshop was the first in a series of seasonal events to be hosted by the Melbourne studio, and centred around the creation of two dramatic botanic backdrops.
“After a brief talk about seasonal blooms and the various varieties of flowers we had available, we discussed design principles and colour combinations,” shares Pomp’s Petra Cremming. “We then broke up into two groups and each group collaborated on a design for their flower wall installation. It was amazing to see how the collaborations worked out, everyone stepped into their strength and contributed amazing talent to the group project. The outcome was seriously impressive.”
A grazing spread, organic herbal teas and local wines ensured the workshop was fun, relaxed and a little indulgent. Photographer Marie Luise was on hand to capture the floral frenzy, and everyone went home armed with masses of blooms and a ton of inspiration.
The winter workshop will be happening next month (July 14) and Petra tells us “The installation we will create together will be more of a brambling feature, wild and sculptural with lots of fine crafted detail.” A handful of tickets are still available here.
If you love the sound of this for a private group event (the perfect hens day?) you can get in touch with Petra about a bespoke workshop here.
