Illume Workshop in Sydney photographed by Abbie Melle - September 2017
The day started off with excitement as the Oh Flora team unloaded buckets upon buckets of local blooms and foraged foliages and branches. Light flooded into the open studio space as we waited for the eager attendees to arrive. Soon they poured into space and were greeted by personalised goodies and an array of bright florals to create with.
Tanya then demonstrated her techniques of creating bountiful bridal bouquets. The attendees listened while jointing down thoughts and reminders in their notebooks. All our attendees then dove right in themselves, picking a variety of blooms and arranging in one big group! Everyone created freely as the Oh Flora crew offered small tips along the way. We then took a break as everyone finished up their abundant bouquets. While conversing and snacking, we prepared the space for the activity of the afternoon: A large scale installation using a variety of techniques. We used the plant stand that once held all the buckets of flowers and built from there! The attendees were all able to add a special piece to this unique floral structure.
Following the completion of our installation, we chilled out with a glass of wine and reflected on the days designs and discussed all things business.
