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.

I had an amazing experience at this workshop. Jem is enthusiastic, passionate about her work, relates well with students and exudes positivity throughout. I learnt many floristry tips and I'm already looking forward to the next workshop with Jem.

Took mum for her birthday. It was really good class and is a great gift idea for a friend or for your mum. Flowers were fresh and beautiful. Gemima who taught the class was fun and friendly. The class was slow paced which was nice so you could have a sip of wine and take your time. Would definitely like to visit again and try another class.

Michelle Fielden Dec 2021


An absolutely fantastic class, brilliant for a beginner like myself who has no idea how to arrange flowers. Jemima the teacher was lovely and us truly passionate about floristry which becomes contagious once you start your first arrangement. I’m definitely coming back to do more and I’m telling everyone I know about this class

Cherys Park Nov 2021


This is my second class with Jemina (first class was the dried and preserved arrangement) and it was fun and very informative. She demonstrated the arrangement before we began and provided lots of tips for us to keep in mind when doing our arrangement. It's a great class to have fun and learn something new at the same time. I'm looking forward to the next workshop with Jemina!

Teacher knowledgeable. Quality of flowers, very good. Leant some floristry tips you would only learn by participating inhouse.

Overall, the atmospheres was welcoming, felt personnel and extra catering made the class feeling - WOW all for me!
Thank you

Claudia Nov 2021


The most enjoyable 2 hours I have spent for some time. We were made to feel very special with a generous range of teas served in dainty china cups and a delectable selection of petits fours. The venue's decor is stylish and elegant.
A selection of gorgeous flowers, tools, and vessels was already laid out for the participants. Jemina demonstrated in an informative and delightful fashion, making it very easy for the participants to follow. Even after the glass of champagne, everyone managed to produce a lovely flower arrangement.
All in all a very professional setup
Thank you.

Floristry workshop review by Louise  Sydney

Andrea Lowe Mar 2021


This class was so relaxing, practical and fun! Jem was knowledgeable and helpful, giving practical tips to help us to arrange flowers beautifully. At the end of class we walked away with a stunning flower arrangement in a really useful vase, much like I’ve seen as centrepieces at many weddings. To test our skills, we immediately grabbed a jar and headed out to the garden to create another beautiful display made from the contents of our garden and our newfound knowledge. Thanks Jem, highly recommend!

Debra Billson Mar 2021


Such a lovely way to spend a Saturday in a beautiful studio space. Jemina is an experienced and friendly teacher, who explained the process clearly, and had everything well prepared and laid out, meaning we could easily create a beautiful posy to take home in the supplied glass vase. Would happily do another class at this venue.
