Flower Lovers Open Day

Held in Darlinghurst, there will be demonstrations from florists with the ability to talk to the trainers and discover an insight into the world of design and how those beautiful arrangements in their stores are put together. You'll also see different ways to 'play' with flowers and see some designs created by current students. You can purchase flowers on the day and take home your own florist's toolkit to start your very own creations.
