I am specialised in Japanese (Ikebana) and European styles of arrangement. My work expresses a contemporary marriage between the exquisitely refined traditions of Japanese floral art Ikebana, and the vibrant textures and colours of Australia. I regularly provide flower arrangements for Sydney University, Sydney restaurants like Masuya Group, weddings, and more.

My Ikebana journey started at a young age, with the Ikebana that my mother created with flowers picked from the fields and gardens around our home, and has continued and evolved ever since.

Setsuko was a fantastic teacher, carefully explained the technique required to make a bouquet and provided everyone in the class equal amounts of attention and assistance. The bouquet at the end was beautiful with such a lovely selection of flowers. Would definitely recommend driving instead of public transport as it was massive.

A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Setsuko was lovely and provided us with all the materials we needed, including a variety of fresh flowers. One of the best parts of the workshop was being able to take home our creations - wrapped in beautiful paper.

Elizabeth Newton Feb 2023

Very enjoyable and pleasant atmosphere. Technique teaching very good with lots of individual attention. Generous supply of floral and other materials. It was interesting that despite all having similar materials to work with, each participant produced individual bouquets, and this added to the richness of the learning experience.

Floristry class review by Robyn Freer - Sydney

Joshua Cruz May 2022

Setsuko was a great teacher. Showed us how to make it first and guided us when making our own. Had a nice little balcony where you can take photos with your completed bouquets. It’s pricey but considering you get to keep your bouquet which would often cost over 2/3 the price this is actually a pretty decent deal. Overall very pleasant and relaxing way to spend the afternoon with mum on Mother’s Day.

Really enjoyed our class today on Mother's Day. My mum was so happy and had a lot of fun. Setsuko our teacher allowed us to use our creativity to make our bouquets and then gave us great tips on how to make it look even better.

Wonderful class! We were taught by Setsuko, who has years of experience in the field of floristry. She made it look so easy! I struggled a bit but she was so helpful and made sure I had a beautiful arrangement. The class was set in a stunning flower shop and she had a great sense of humour that made the class fun :)

Katharine Pan Sep 2020

Setsuko is a wonderful, charming, and patient teacher. The venue reflects her style, and it is a beautiful maximalist place with dried king proteas, vibrant statice, an elegant mirror, and potted plants. The flowers are fresh, conditioned well, and the sweet peas we used in our bouquets have an enchanting fragrance. I appreciate the variety of wrapping she has to offer, the ribbon quality is very nice, and I think the use of raffia to tie up our bouquets is ingenious as it is both sustainable, and less time consuming compared to other methods. Setsuko offers a unique perspective on floristry with her background in both Japanese, and European style floral design, both novice and more seasoned florists can appreciate. This workshop is great value for money considering the costs of flowers nowadays are much more higher due to COVID-19, the quality of flowers you can find at the Sydney flower markets by yourself can be a bit subpar, but Setsuko has a great eye for quality flowers.
Overall, the workshop has a personable, relaxed, rejuvenating feeling and I highly recommend Setsuko. Although car is recommended, it’s still worth the train trip. Looking forward to future flower workshops.

I really enjoyed this class. We finished quite quickly and so the time allocated should be adjusted or a few more techniques could have been demonstrated.

Setsuko is a great teacher. She gave us basic knowledge how to create beautiful bouquet. My partner enjoyed the class as well as I did myself. We spent two hours doing what we have never done before and Setsuko helped us to finalize our bouquets. Now I have 2 beautiful bouquets the one from my partner and the other I did myself

Really loved the workshop! Setsuko was an absolute delight! The workshop was informative and valuable.

Jody Jackson Aug 2019

I was absolutely honoured to be given the opportunity to learn from Yuga. She is very patient and took the time to show me a number of different styles be for allowing me to play with the flowers myself. She provided me with good advice on how to improve and I definitely feel as though I learnt a lot. She had a good variety of foliage and flowers to work with and allowed me to make my own creative choices. I will definitely be coming back next time I am in Sydney

Jade Macapinlac Feb 2019

The teacher has great flower arranging skills, but the 2 hours paid for was not maximised to d full. The class finished early n I was eager to learn more but after 1 bouquet arrangement that was it we could go.

Most bouquets completed were done by the teacher, so it was not hands on.

Irene Somera Feb 2019

Lots of flower variety was provided. The teacher clearly shared her 1 technique or main principle to apply with the flower bouquet arrangement. She completed the steps till packaging or wrapping. The,quality of flowers ab, rest if materials are of at par quality. The class though ended quickly. We could have used the remaining time to learn more ideas or have a 2nd go of practice. Though the instructor has explained that it varies or is dependent on the pace of the students.

Rebeca Belling Dec 2018

Our teacher was lovely and made the morning very relaxing. She showed us what to do and then helped us get to a final bouquet we were happy with. A lovely space to have the class and a great cafe next door too

Nicole Switaj Oct 2018

The teacher was fantastic, helped and guided through myself and the group on arranging the bouquet.

Sanna Axbom Sep 2018

Setsuko is a very sweet teacher and has a personal approach. She's knowledgeable and picked out a good mix of flowers for us to work with.

The class only lasted for 1.5h (we put together one bouquet each) and wasn't as informative as I would have hoped. I would have liked to get to know a few more techniques for how to make flower bouquets. Maybe the teacher was a bit busy as two separate classes ran at the same time but she also forgot to bring out the tea she offered us when the class stared.

Overall a fun experience which I can recomend for someone looking for a fun thing to do.

Sarah Bowman Jun 2018

Such a great class! Setsuko was very friendly and showed me some great techniques to basket arrangements. Also got to take home the beautiful table display

Jerlene Sevilla May 2018

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. With all materials provided, Setsuko guided us on how to create our own masterpiece. Being in a small group, it was easy to watch and listen to instructions. I appreciate how she observes and checks every individual's creation and gives feedbacks to ensure we do the right thing. Setsuko is very passionate and artisticand most of all she is very willing to share her knowledge and experience to newbies like me

Francisca Araya Apr 2018

The place is cozy, full of flowers and the moment I went inside I smelled the flowers and it made me feel good.
The materials were already set up, so it was easy to follow the instructions for start it.
The teacher gave as an introduction and then we start making our arrangement.
I went by public transport which is not a good alternative for this one, as the bouquet is very big for carrying on the bus.
Well, at the end was a lovely rainy morning. I felt so good that I wanted it not to end! It seemed it was short for me :)

Maria Buenviaje Apr 2018

I can say that I got the essential theoretical and hands on training on basket flower arrangement from Setsuko even in just one session because she was concise in her teaching and provided constructive feedback. The session was worth it as it was not only informative but was also definitely fun!
