Are you ready to take your floral design to new heights?
Would you like to master your floral technique while immersing yourself in nature and taking a break from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind?
We would love to welcome you to our two day workshop Elysian at our beautiful Hillstreams Farm in Waroona, where you will learn the art of unstructured and intentional garden floral design. Whether you choose to attend one day or fully immerse yourself for the full two days each workshop has been designed for florists and stylists of all levels and is the perfect opportunity to escape the city, connect with nature and push your flowering boundaries to new limits.
Hillstreams Farm is located in the hills of Waroona, Western Australia, an hour and a half south of Perth Airport. The property is currently used for cattle farming and feeding the hundreds of Kangaroos that like to call it home. There is little infrastructure on the farm. It is raw, natural and largely untouched—the perfect place to get creative.
