The time flew and I enjoyed trusting my eyes rather than engaging my brain, very mindful, and the teacher, Nikki, extremely helpful, inspiring and patient. And I am left with something beautiful I created!

Flower Centrepiece Class


Nikki was fantastic, I learnt so much from her on the centrepiece workshop. The materials she had were beautiful and so much variety, we were able to choose how much or little we wanted.

She was well prepared for the social distancing and the venue was great.

I would definitely recommend doing this workshop. I am so pleased with what I created.

Alena Tsarkova

Make a Dream Catcher with Flowers and Crystal


Nikki was such a great teacher I absolutely LOVED the class and how the wreath turned out. I usually don't have the time do something for myself, or if I do, I always end up doing something for others. Doing this class helped me to completely switch off and think only about how to lay these beautiful flowers around the wreath.
Floral arrangements is something that always scared me, but Nikki taught you about the flowers and guided you from start to finish on how to arrange them in a beautiful way.
Highly recommend this to anyone who is looking to have some time to themselves, who loves flowers and loves creating with their hands.
Thank you Nikki I can't stop looking at it :)

Floristry workshop review by Alena Tsarkova Sydney

Vanessa Opazo

I would recommend this workshop to everyone!
Nikki is a very talented and passionate florist artist.
She is very knowledgeable and you can tell that she really loves what she does and enjoys sharing it with others.
She provides you with all the materials you need and the end result is absolutely gorgeous, I can’t wait to hang it and have it as a reminder that any day is a good day to pause and do something for yourself.

This was an incredible class, I had so much fun! Nikki gave me the confidence (and the perfect materials!) to put my own spin on the project and I’m so proud of myself for how it turned out. I couldn’t recommend her and her classes more highly!

Floristry workshop review by Suzanne Balanco

Melanie Crea

Floristry class


Nikki was helpful and patient, and provided a great range of flowers and foliage to choose from. The class was really great value. Im thrilled with my wreath!
The venue is challenging as there is a lot of background noise and shoppers walking by, so it was hard to hear Nikki's explanations. It also took a while for the class to start because there weren't enough chairs etc. I would definitely do another class with Nikki but maybe not at Belrose Supacentre in the same location.

Excellent ! Really enjoy two hours there making the wreather. A lot of choices for the flowers to choose from.

Floristry workshop review by Vivian Chan

Sarah Gerdovic

Floristry class


Class was excellent value - a little chaotic with everyone grabbing what they want. I would suggest setting up each table with a selection of at least the base greenery so that people don’t miss out as there was barely anything left when I got to it. Managed to get some Holly after a whilegloves would be super handy too as very spikeyouch!

Thank you so much for teaching us how to make the dream catcher. It was packaged so nicely and was so much fun to make!


Stephanie Maria

Make a Dream Catcher with Flowers and Crystal


Nikki made creating a thing of great beauty so easy! Her selection of flowers were beautiful and her guidance on how and where to use each one was good. She was also very encouraging - telling us that the weaving of twine was the trickiest part as we fumbled through it. I really enjoyed this online class and would recommend it to anyone who thinks they aren't creative.

I really enjoyed the Floral Dreamcatcher with Flowers Workshop with Nikki. She was very clear with her directions/instructions and gave me helpful tips where needed in modifying the design.
She was also patient due to the fact that I had many technical difficulties connecting via Zoom.
Overall, it was a great workshop, and I would definitely do more workshops with Nikki in the future. I am really happy with my finished product.

Sharyn Barry

Floristry class


Teacher was very good but maybe needed a microphone & to address whole audience ( at tables in U shape) as it was hard to hear at times in her introduction. Moving around to help was great. Materials were fantastic. All sorts of Christmas wreaths were made-allowed for individual variation.


Casey Farria

Christmas Wreath Making Class


Nikki was a wonderful teacher! We all felt at ease, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and learnt how to make gorgeous wreaths - which are all hanging proudly in our homes! Highly recommend Nikki's class for a group activity, competitive pricing and great value.

Emma Ford

Wedding Flower Bouquet Workshop


Nikki was amazing. I emailed her to book a class for myself and my mum as a birthday surprise for her. My mum has a disability and I asked Nikki some questions about how accessible her place was for someone with mobility limitations. She responded almost instantly and was really helpful. We went along to the class today and we both had a great time. I made a bridal bouquet and Mum made a table arrangement. Both of which were beautiful. Nikki even asked me before hand what flowers my mum likes so she could have them available for us. This was by far one my mums favourite birthday in a really long time. I highly recommend Nikki. Thank you again for a really great day.

Nikki’s studio was so beautiful and creative. She had a wide variety of florals and she was just amazing herself. She made the class very fun and relaxing the same time. And at the end everyone’s flower crown looked amazing.


Pamela Yeo

Romantic Flower Crown Workshop


The workshop was set up beautifully in a park by the water in Kirribilli. Nikki was very patient and attentive, even to the smallest details. Even though it was a flower crown making workshop, Nikki had an introduction with us on the basic knowledge of flowers, how to take care of them and how to choose the right colours. The best part was she didn't rush us throughout the process. My friend and I had a great time and we will definitely arrange other classes with Nikki. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
