Our flower workshops are designed for those with a love of all things "Bloomin' Marvellous" with an emphasis on basic elements of design and covering a range of techniques for an appreciation of Mother nature's beautiful creations and most of all having fun with flowers.

With an illustrious career spanning over 30 years, Bloomin Marvellous Flower Schools' founder Jemina has been lucky enough to collaborate with some of the best in the business and worked on many of Melbourne’s most prestigious events including the Melbourne Grand Prix Spring Racing Carnival and the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show.

Beginning her apprenticeship training at the renowned Myer Florist in the Melbourne city store to owning her own florist shop in the Mornington Peninsula at the age of 20.

Her passion for teaching was ignited when she joined the team as head teacher at Victoria Whitelaw School of Flowers. This is where the story has a new beginning, “Not everyone gets to have a career they love, I’m very lucky”. Being able to give back all that she has learnt over the years to up and coming students was very gratifying and left Jemina wanting to offer more. Jemina not only has her Certificate lll in Floristry but also attended night school to gain her Certificate lV in Training & Assessment – making her an accredited teacher.

That is when she returned to where it all began having been a floristry student at Box Hill Institute (many years before) and coming full circle by returning as a part of the teaching faculty.

December 2019 Bloomin’ Marvellous Flower School was launched Based in the leafy Melbourne suburb of Malvern, Bloomin’ Marvellous Flower School inspires people from all walks of life to celebrate the beauty of nature, have fun with flowers and take a moment to (quite literally) stop and smell the roses.

For Jemina, the biggest reward is seeing the smiles that transform her students’ faces after they’ve assembled their first bouquet – so pop into her light-filled studio and find some joy as you learn to arrange your own.

This was an enjoyable way to spend a boring lazy lonely afternoon. Everything I needed was delivered directly to my door & I get to add to my indoor plant collection.

Bought this for my wife's birthday and she had a great time on the group call. Found the class really engaging and the teacher (apoloigies, i forget the name) fun, enthusiastic and great at instructing over the video call.

Jem was so wonderful. It was a cross between a kokedama class and a stand up comedy session.

I just love her sense of humour and her unique way of making kokedamas that will last for years to come.

So much fun to be had! I will be doing more of Jem’s classes for sure.

Thank you for an amazing afternoon of pyjamas, wine and laughs.

Jem was a great teacher and entertaining! Really enjoyed the session and my plant has turned out really well. Easy to follow the instructions even for someone with only very basic planting skills.

Jem was fabulous, a fun way to spend one of the many nights in lockdown.

Brendon Kim Sep 2021


I can not speak highly enough about the virtual kokedama class run by Jem. Not only was the organisation with delivery extremely smooth, but the way Jem ran the class with her energy, humour and patience was amazing. We had a group of 30 people who knew nothing about kokedamas before the call, but ended the session with a memorable time and a gorgeous creation for the home. If you're a company looking to run a virtual event for your staff, don't hesitate at all with going with Jem at Bloomin' Marvellous - you're assured to have an incredible time.

My wife took the class on my behalf as I had a headache and she absolutely loved it. Sounds like she had a blast, I’m sorry I missed it, but looking forward to trying it out for myself.

Loved everything about the kokedama course. Jemina was so friendly and accommodating. Due to Aust post delays and the fact that we live not far from each other, Jemina dropped my kit off to me so that I would have it in time. The class was fun, interactive and jemina's delivery was very easy to follow, even on Zoom. I am so happy with my kokedama and would recommend this class for anyone. I look forward to attending another of Jemina's classes in the future. - Nik

To celebrate achieving our teams quarterly goal, we organised a Kokedama making class. Everyone in the team had an absolute ball, from receiving the kits on short notice, to the awesome energy that Jem brought to the session! I would strongly recommend this class for anyone willing to getting their hands dirty and trying out something a little different. Thank you so much Jem and Bloomin Marvellous for being a part of our celebration.
