Julia-Rose will be holding two private botanical workshops at the Botanical Bazaar. Tickets to the workshops can be purchased HERE >.
WORKSHOP 1 – Wreath or Floral Hoop [$86+ BF]
Sunday 3rd September, 1.15pm – 2.45pm
In this creative and fun filled workshop you will learn how to create a floral wreath or floral hoop (if you prefer).
Set aside the thoughts of a boring and traditional wreath, this piece will be modern, simple and organic, hence more so a floral hoop. Bohemian wild and gorgeous.
You start by weaving your own hoop from raw vines, then attaching foliage and branches with wiring techniques, finishing off with a simply stunning little offset design of flowers and feature seed pods. The base of your design will dry out over time making it easy for you to recreate your design over and over again in the future with the skills you learn on the day.
WORKSHOP 2 – Offset Design in a Ceramic Vessel [$99+ BF]
Sunday 3rd September, 3.25pm – 4.55pm
The spectacular piece will be an offset free form composition. Inspiration of the piece will be only restricted by your creative imagination – such as a west coast estate styled creation or a classic dutch painting.
The piece will be raw, organic and lush in texture and free flowing. The end result will be beautiful traditional garden flowers nestled amongst an abundance of greenery.
Workshops are LIMITED to only 35 people, so purchase your tickets early to avoid dissappointment. If you do miss out, Julia-Rose will have botanical art on display and will be available for chats at the Botanical Bazaar.
Entry into workshop includes entry to the Botanical Bazaar and a 1.5hr botanical workshop hosted by Julia-Rose.
