Spring Floral Installation Workshop with Kitty Latham and Annabelle Hickson


Saturday September 21, 2019

Uniting Church and then Glenrock Gardens, Tenterfield, NSW

10.30am - dinner, $660 per person, including GST

Join installation expert Kitty Latham of Sydney-based floral studio The Wilds for a day dedicated to the art of large-scale floral installations.

Kitty will share all her tips and tricks so that you come away with the confidence to not only dream up, but also to realise, both hanging and fixed installations. Annabelle Hickson will photograph the day and provide you with gorgeous images of you and your work, while Gillian Bell will spoil us with a delicious lunch and dinner, made with the very best local ingredients.

We’ll spend the morning creating a large hanging installation from the exposed beams in the Tenterfield Uniting Church. Kitty will talk about design concepts and aesthetics, as well as practical, usable skills such as rope splicing, tying elegant but strong knots, pulley systems, foam-free and cable tie-free techniques.

After a picnic lunch, we’ll jump on a bus to the gorgeous Glenrock Gardens - ten minutes out of town - to spend the afternoon in groups of two, working together under the guidance of Kitty, to create a large-scale freestanding installation, under which we will eat dinner that night.

Kitty and Annabelle will be on hand to help create the structures and mechanics with you, advising on shape, form and texture as you create your sculptural floral installations. We will discuss the best foliage and florals to use, the best materials, share the tricks of the trade and a small dose of health and safety notes.

As we work together, Gillian will prepare a lovely feast using the best local ingredients.

Then it’s time for an aperitif in the garden, followed by dinner under our installation. The bus will whisk us back to town around 8.30pm, so that we can collapse on our beds after all our floral work.

There are some great accomodation options in Tenterfield, and you’ll be emailed some suggestions after booking.

This will be a very special day, full of creative inspiration, practical and usable skills, great food and excellent company.
