The class was really enjoyable. The venue was in a house just across from Chris's flowershop, it was a perfect setting for the class. He was extremely helpful and gave lots of tips. You then took your creations home with you, so it is definitely value for money. Would recommend.

This was such an amazing and informative class. We were able to make 3 different pieces and take home the rest of the flowers we didn’t use. The time just flew by, and I had a blast.

I did private class at Merchant & Green Redfern flower shop and it was more then I expected. Chris (with 20+ years in flower industry (you can see that confidence straight point :) ) ) was very helpful, not just teaching me how to make beautiful flower arrangements, and recognising flowers in the first place, but also with so many tips that will help me to open my own flower shop one day.
Thank you so much guys!

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.

The flowers were super fresh and the space was really well set out.

Gillian Dryland Jan 2021


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! His knowledge of plants and how to create beautiful arrangements is second to none. I would highly recommend visiting the store, the workshops are well worth your money! I know that I will definitely be returning in the near future.

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!

Chris & Mitch were perfect hosts, so attentive and fun. We were shown multiple ways of arranging flowers and ample time to play around with different ideas, there was absolutely no rush to stick to the allotted time. The herbal tea was also very welcome. Highly recommend this workshop and no doubt will be back again.

Had such a fun time! Chris is lovely and it was so welcoming arriving and having a cup of tea waiting. The space is really welcoming and lovely and being in the storefront means you also see customers come in and chat about the flowers they’re getting etc. this was wildflowers and the selection was incredible - some I hadn’t seen before were really breathtaking and they look so good on my dining table now, too!

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.

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.

Chris was an excellent teacher. The space was really lovely and the floral stick was excellent quality. A really great class.
