Hello flower lover

Welcome to my world of flowers, floral art and floral designing.

I remember what it was like “before the internet” trying to find useful information to help me explore the world of floral design. I don’t come from a floristry background, I didn’t have access to relatives who might also have a love of floral design.

When I first started out in this passion, I had to find a floral design group that held meetings somewhere near my home. This wasn’t easy as I live on a farm. So the first few years were a hard slog, trying to find inspiration, clear instructions for techniques and someone to ask when I got
completely stuck with a design.

Sound familiar?

These days, with the abundance of information available to us via the internet, it might seem easier to follow a flower passion without the need for a group to which you belong and attend meetings.

I think it’s actually harder for a few reasons:

too much information: how do you find the right information and quickly?
unclear instructions: how often have you watched a video and not understood what you should do?
no time for meetings: so few of us have the luxury of being able to commit to travel to and attend a meeting  once a month
don’t want to attend meetings: some of us learn better on our own and are happy that way
single design style focus groups: what can you do when you want to explore different areas of floral design to those of your group?
competition or pleasure: what happens when you just want to use flowers from your garden but the group is geared for competition or vice versa?
paced learning and experience: I’ve always found it easier to take my time to learn about floral art – not always what a group wants to do!

Of course, there are some great things about groups. First and foremost, they provide us with friends who share our passion for floral designs. They make us get out and about (in all kinds of weather). We benefit from the knowledge and experience of others in a one to one environment.

So what can you do if you agree with any of the reasons I’ve talked (or others I haven’t mentioned) about BUT you want to learn and develop your floral design skills?

Fortunately now you can have the best of both worlds.

Some of the content on this site is free for all to use.

There is a much more extensive range of information and individual support that is available only to online members. Membership gives you

  • international judges comments sessions via webinars;
  • regular challenges open to all members via image submission;
  • periodic live Q&A sessions and webinars with internationally acclaimed floral designers;
  • unique images of all designs in international competitions such as the World Association of Floral Artists World Shows, Singapore Garden Festival, Canada Blooms etc

When you join an existing floral art group, what do you get for your money? Perhaps a few issues of a newsletter or magazine that might have something you could use. Anything else associated with your membership is an ongoing cost isn’t it? Travel to meetings, workshops, seminars, competitions? All added costs for your membership.

With this online floral art group, you get:

  • new designs every month with a full breakdown of how to create them;
  • new techniques every month with step by step instructions and images/video so you can learn the technique the best way for you;
  • regular challenges where you can send an image of a design of yours and have it assessed by internationally qualified floral art judges;
  • popular choice competitions where the online members vote for their favourite designs;
  • regular webinars with internationally acclaimed floral designers (the ones you might pay $300+ to see in a room with 150 other people!);
  • access to unique images of all designs from world class competitions;
  • regular webinars with international floral art judges to talk about floral art from basic designs to emerging trends;
  • help with preparation for floral art competitions at any level;
  • an opportunity to ask the questions that are important to you

All this in the privacy and comfort of wherever you access the internet.

It doesn’t matter where you live, it doesn’t matter what time of day (or night) you want to pursue your floral design passion, it doesn’t matter whether you use plant material from your garden, from the supermarket or from a flower supplier.

All online members get immediate access to trends, techniques and news from the floral art world without having to spend time searching through a multitude of websites and videos. These are some of the online member benefits:

  • new designs every month with a full breakdown of how to create them;
  • new techniques every month with step by step instructions so you can use the technique;
