Event name: SPRING FLOWER WORKSHOP with JARDINE HANSEN
SPRING FLOWERS with JARDINE HANSEN, Saturday 04 December 2021
“Explore the finest flowers late winter / early spring has to offer….”
An ardent love of plants and flowers began early in Jardine’s childhood as she wandered through rambling gardens with her grandmother, mispronouncing botanical names. She revels in creating loose arrangements which retain the sense of spontaneity and romance found in a garden. Her work is layered and textured, making good use of interesting botanical specimens and favouring locally grown flowers and foliage for their seasonal beauty. Jardine offers floral styling by appointment for private homes, weddings and corporate events in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and beyond. You can discover an extensive story about Jardine at The Planthunter
This hands-on day will begin at 10am with morning tea and a gentle conversation leading you into the world of flowers. You will then be introduced to your bounty…your own private flower shop in the Dairy, where buckets of spring flowers await you and with which you will play, under Jardine’s guidance and encouragement all morning long. A long-table, seasonally inspired lunch from the kitchen garden (its prettiness on the plate to equal that in your hand) will punctuate the day; followed by a garden ramble collecting sprigs and lengths of whatever we can find…in the time-honoured way of country gardeners, for Jardine to arrange before your eyes in her favourite romantic manner. It will be a day of complete floral immersion...absolute bliss…(and of course you take your own beautiful arrangement home!).
Cost *$495.00 per person. All materials, including an abundance of flowers and secateurs, will be provided. (Please bring an apron).
