Bay Grape leaf wreaths & trees workshop

On Tuesday, August 4, 2020 members came together for this creative workshop where we made Bay Grape leaf wreaths & trees. These will be dried, then painted and sold at our Christmas Fair on December 5, 2020. Aren’t they lovely?

Painting party workshop

At this free workshop, held on the 28th of July 2020, members got down & dirty and painted some fabulous palm spathes with base coats, as well as some of our Floral Art staging – roller painting & spray painting.

Mechanics & more workshop

At this workshop, held on the 21st of July 2020, members learnt the tricks of the Floral Art trade!

Palm stripping workshop

At this free workshop held on the 7th of July 2020, members joined Debbie, Susan and Cindy to learn how to create the base of a wreath for our Christmas fair. The workshop included tuition on how to transform Chinese Fan Palm leaves into ornate balls to decorate the wreath. Once the palms have dried, they can be painted to add a bit more character (or sparkle) to the wreath.

Jambi workshop

A Floral Art Workshop was held at Horticultural Hall on May 23rd, 2016. Those in attendance were under the watchful eye(s) of floral art masters Cindy Young and Debbie Burville. The results both showed skillful direction and talented budding floral artists! We hope to see more of your work in days to come ladies!
