Loved the class. Teacher is very knowledgeable and patient. I had no previous experience of ikebana but after 1class left feeling confident that I could produce something quite nice. Looking forward to doing more sessions.

We did Setsuko's Ikebana flower arrangement class for my friend's hen's party. The class is set in a beautiful little workshop and has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. We were taught how to create simple and beautiful flower arrangements, and had a wonderful time.
Can you give a bit more detail about the specific types of flowers and other plants we will likely use in this class?
You will use seasonal flowers. Seasonality is important for the Japanese. Even with Australian natives. Below photos are some examples to give you an indication of what you'll work with, and create.
