Fun couple of hours being instructed by the amusing and highly experienced Chris. Taught us a bit about the native flowers and how to put them together to make a professional looking bouquet. Took home a beautiful bouquet to enjoy for weeks to come! Thank you Chris!

Thank you Chris for the wonderful workshop! Thank you especially for running the class even though it was just me! I learned so much about flower care, arranging and presenting flowers. Chris took me through a posy and a flat arrangement, and helped me wrap up my final product. The shop is so beautiful and Chris was highly professional and personable - he clearly has so much experience and passion to share. Thanks so much!

Wonderful experience doing this with Chris! His space is lovely. Had a glass of rose, too. The flowers you work with are generous, although some pieces could be fresher. But overall I think the experience was excellent.

Had such a lovely experience with the wildflower arranging workshop. Orla was a great teacher. Really clear and helpful. And the flowers were gorgeous. I’m still looking at my arrangement that I brought home, and it makes me very happy and proud. I’d definitely recommend this as a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, or a good introduction if you’ve been considering pursuing floristry (I know I’m definitely hooked, and going to come back).

A beautiful and welcoming venue at a flower shop. The teacher was friendly, accommodating, experienced in her craft and very helpful. It was a fun morning, learning a few things, with all the wildflowers provided. We each went home with a beautiful bouquet we have created, complete with wrapping paper and ribbon. A lovely experience to share with a friend or for yourself.

Beautiful venue, enthusiastic and warm teacher. Beautiful flowers and great teaching would definitely come back. Only issue was that there definitely needed to be two staff members on as she needed to step away from the class a lot to serve others and it made the whole thing run late- totally not her fault! But that did impact the experience. Loved it though. Òrla was fabulous.

Chris, our instructor had a lot to contend with. He had 6 family members spanning 3 generations. It’s a testament to his skill that even the most timid of us could feel satisfied with our final arrangements. He was funny, knowledgeable, encouraging, and a great communicator.
The venue was lovely, the foliage interesting, and the whole family had a great time. Thanks!

This was a really fun date day for myself and my husband. We got to play with different bouquet shapes and learn about how to use various textures and sizes of foliage together. Olna was friendly, knowledgeable and supportive and gave us a great balance of instruction and creative freedom. We both walked away with a beautiful bouquet, and I’ve already told my mom that another workshop with Merchant and Green would be a great gift idea.

Merchant & Green are an amazing little company. I recently attended one of their workshops and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Mitch was an amazing host!

We had the best time in this class. It’s an intimate space where you’ll have a personalised lesson & experience. Chris was an excellent and generous teacher. The products we used were such a high quality and Merchant & Green topped us up with extras to ensure we loved our bouquets. We will definitely be coming back for different class types, perhaps with a glass of bubbles!

The wildflower arranging workshop was excellent! Such a lovely afternoon with great information & guidance from the teachers while also letting us take our bouquets in our own direction :) We learned to make bouquets 3 different ways using the wildflowers. The workshop is in a gorgeous location in the florist studio, surrounded by wonderful flowers.
The flowers provided were beautiful and we each got to take home a huge bunch that we put together ourselves. I think it was perfect value for money & the class was what I expected & hoped for!

This was my first time joining a flower arranging workshop - and I super love it. Just want to say big thanks to Mitch and Chris for such a wonderful experience; they are such great and fun teachers. Besides learning how to arrange the flowers, I was amazed at the fact that there are many different kinds of native wildflowers/plants provided on the day. On top of that, I love that I get to bring my own bouquet arrangement home. I am glad I spent $130 for this particular workshop, it was a really good value for money.

What a great relaxing activity to do while on holidays. Chris the teacher was friendly and a wealth of knowledge. My private wildflower class was amazing. I learnt so much as I was guided through the stages of putting my arrangement together. A great experience and best of all I have an individual arrangement to hold, touch and take home with me to enjoy for days to come. I will be back and recommend the shop and class.

Emma Kuebler Nov 2018


My mum and I participated in a class run by Mitch who was extremely knowledgeable, really friendly, and super helpful. We had a wonderful time and felt that we learnt great techniques when it comes to putting together your own bouquet or arrangement in a vase. The cherry on top was being able to walk away with our beautiful bouquets at the end of the class! And a special thanks to Chris who was also so friendly and helpful and who made up an exquisite bouquet upon my request.
Thanks guys!

As always, Chris was amazing! I had previously attended his terrarium class and loved it so much that I came back for a private class with my family. He was thoughtful and patient throughout the entire class, offering us great pieces of information and advice on how to make a beautiful bouquet. His eye for colour, years of experience and bubbly personality really makes him the best teacher. For the price, you learn so much and get to take home an ENORMOUS bouquet that looks and smells amazing.
