Flower Arranging Workshop - Easter Theme


  • Sun 17 Mar 2024, 9:30am–11:30am


All Ages

Listed by


Louise Kirkwood, from Old School Yard Blooms, will be presenting another of her extremely popular workshops with an “Easter table-scape” theme. So if you would like to create your own Easter table settings or flower arrangements to celebrate the festival (and impress your friends and family!) this is a “not to be missed” event.

She will bring her experience from growing, gathering and curating fresh, local, seasonal flowers on the property that housed the old Upper Waiwera School.

In this very interactive workshop, you will get the opportunity to:

- Learn about tools and materials needed, with a focus on re-useable supplies
- Select flowers and foliage from the Kaipara nature trail and gardens
- Practise some different ways to create smaller and larger pieces for a table-scape
- Learn how to help your creations last longer

If you have a dish or other container you would like to utilise to contain your creation please feel free to bring that along although an appropriate receptacle will be provided for you to take away with you.

Louise plans to stroll around the gardens with attendees selecting appropriate plants and flowers and then show how to arrange them to best effect.

Please note: These workshops are always oversubscribed so booking is essential as places are limited.

After the workshop you can also spend some more time in the Gardens which has a beautiful sculpture exhibition along a 1.2km pathway as well as our recently created nature trail which is a further 2.4 km for you to explore. This is all set in the idyllic Kaipara countryside and placed so as to blend sympathetically with the surrounding environment.

Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will also be on hand to help with any garden related questions.

Trail not suitable for wheelchairs or walking frames.

Venue location: 1481 Kaipara Coast Highway (SH16), 4km north of Kaukapakapa
Tickets: $30 per person
