As You all know I live on a wonderful little farm & create glorious art. I love foraging, finding weird & peculiar pretties to create exotic pieces. This is my happy place…so it brings me joy to announce I’m going to be sharing my joy of ‘the farm and foraging’ with you in our workshops!
But how Julia, I hear you ask? Easy peasy you may think, well not really all that easy, all the time. A lot of planning & passion has delivered the perfect mix of workshops for you to join me in a creative quest of your own, with me!
I’m excited to offer the fabulous experience of holding all of our workshops on FARMS & in ART spaces! Flower farms, green farms & just good old fashioned farms where we can fall in love with our surroundings, unleash our creative spirits & let loose! You never know we might see a baby animal or two?! Eeep!
All skill levels welcome, florists, flower lovers, creatives & gardeners alike!
On every farm at every location:
Art spaces, filled with interesting character, some shiny & bright, others a little old & creaky, both full of creative spirit!
We will take a quick adventure around the farm, beginning our creative floral session by designing a stunning bouquet. We’ll enjoy lunch. Then dive into our afternoon session designing beautiful offset flower crown, whilst enjoying creative discussions overlooking this gorgeous setting.
Will be tailored to suit the venue & location. Ranging from wearable floral couture & suspended installs, large art forms from fresh florals & botanicals…..divine inspiration will take us on a journey.
Oh this is going to be so much fun!! These glorious destinations to be announced in due course…
Tasmania, Rockhampton, South Australia, Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula, Canberra, New Zealand and USA.
We can’t wait for you to join us on this glorious floral, botanical journey of creation & learning together.
Creative Smiles, Julia Rose

Everyone heads back to the workshop and our hands-on creative journey begins.
We delve straight into our design, a wild rambling offset design. Featuring an abundance of fresh picked Flowers, intertwined with a collection of Greenery.
In this session we focus on techniques and the role each little bloom or piece of greenery plays within our design.

We then break to enjoy a delicious fresh lunch.
There will be time to chat and enjoy the farm. Oh and of course it’s photo time of us with our creations!

After lunch we relax back into the workshop area and design a beautiful side crown, whilst indulging in some creative discussions on colour theory and techniques.
By this time we will be all fully relaxed and comfortable with each other so the floor is open for questions. This is where the knowledge is passed on, Julia is an open book, but not only that, we all share our wisdom and inspire each other. Whilst settling in for some wiring of pretty things and relaxing with refreshments.
And that is just day one!

After starting with refreshments everyone heads over to the workshop location to start the day.
Delve straight into the Creative adventure.
Today is fast paced. Saturday is our ‘Relax into it’ day. Sunday is ‘Creative whirlwind’.
Now that we are all completely comfortable, it’s time to step outside our comfort zone and implement the techniques we learnt yesterday designing a wild and totally fabulous over the top large wearable headpiece! Unleashing the inner eccentric, think big and bold.
Midday – Lunch break
Time to refresh with a lunch break.
Large water containers topped with local citrus will be available throughout the workshop to rehydrate.
12.30 – Large set design and floral couture
The afternoon session is super exciting as we will do a group build, as a team we will design a suspended installation specially conceptualised to work with our chosen space.
We will step inside the space and discuss the ‘Vision’. We will build from the substructure up!
Touching on things like the role of light and color and defining a clear goal of the end piece.
Set design is what we are after, we want to create a ‘Mood’ and we want that mood to relay to our viewer in the end image!
…And if that’s not enough we will also be designing a piece of Floral couture, something fabulous just to finish the look.
The group build will be followed by a photoshoot to capture all our magic!
We Breathe and we shoot! During this time sweet little bowls of fruit freshly picked to keep our energy up whilst we watch the creation be captured.
Session ends and we all bask in the magic, knowing not only have we created something of beauty that will inspire many, we have just created memories that will last a lifetime.
Every attendee receives a HERO image of the group build.
All attendees (if they choose) will be tagged on social media when the Hero image is released.
Julia Rose also captures a collection of images throughout the sessions, which she will send through to all attendees.
