designing susustanibly doesn't have to be a compromise
I love flowers because they remind us of the joy and beauty found in nature. In every piece of work I create, my aim is always to reference and elevate what nature does on her own whim.
This deep respect for nature means I now only use locally, seasonally grown flowers from Australia and New Zealand. It also means we choose not to work with dyed, bleached or spray painted flowers, and we also operate 100% floral foam-free.
This has been a big transition made over many years, with countless hours spent researching and honing my skills to develop techniques that provide the perfect balance of sustainable practice and beautiful design.
By putting into practice what is most important to me - that my work is not only good for you but as good as it can be for the planet too - everything I create is inextricably linked to the exact place and moment in time it was created. The flowers chosen for you will be forever linked to your event and the special qualities of that moment.
And now I want to share everything I’ve learned with
More that just foam free
If you’re looking to implement more sustainable practices in your floral design but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. I will teach you hands-on techniques and skills, share all the materials and bases I use in my own work, and talk you through how to implement them in your own practice.
These classes can be held at either my studio in West Gippsland or in yours, tailored to exactly what you want to cover. They can be one-on-one classes, or I can come and teach your whole team.
