I am a passionate qualified florist and teacher, with over 15 years of experience in floristry. I am the founder of Yuga Floral Design in Glebe.

I am specialised in Japanese (Ikebana) and European styles of arrangement. My work expresses a contemporary marriage between the exquisitely refined traditions of Japanese floral art Ikebana, and the vibrant textures and colours of Australia. I regularly provide flower arrangements for Sydney University, Sydney restaurants like Masuya Group, weddings, and more.

My Ikebana journey started at a young age, with the Ikebana that my mother created with flowers picked from the fields and gardens around our home, and has continued and evolved ever since.

Flowers to heal your soul.

Let's arrange flowers.

We had a lovely afternoon. Good size class (small) and an encouraging and helpful teacher. Everyone left with something beautiful (even those with no idea).

A fabulous class led by Setsuko. An amazing selection of flowers with great balance between teaching by Setsuko and finding your own creative flair. A lovely sized group too.

A demonstration on how to make an arrangement would have been a great way to start the class.
There was a nice selection of preserved flowers. But I think the class is a little over priced.

Overall a very enjoyable experience! Setsuko provided great guidance and was very knowledgeable. She was very good at providing guidance while also giving us space to experiment. Would recommend.

The teacher was gentle in how she instructed us and gave us insights in to how to place the flowers in the vase and a reason for placing them in certain ways. We had more than enough choice of flowers for what we wanted to do.

Setsuko was a wonderful teacher! Not only did she provide a vast array (but curated, so as to not be overwhlemed) of dried & preserved flowers/grasses/leaves/etc. but with the small class size it was so easy to get her advise and encouragement as you put your arrangement together. I would definitely recommend this class - I had a lot of fun, and came away with a lovely finished product.

Setsuko is a very experienced teacher. She is patience and gives us many tips on flower arranging.
The venue is clean and comfy, easy parking on the street.
All materials were provided. Just need to sit back, enjoy and have fun! And you get to keep your own final masterpiece at the end of the class!

Naomi Long Mar 2022

My friend and I attended the preserved flower arrangement class and had a blast! The teacher Setsuko was really lovely, gave us guidance and helped us perfect our arrangements as we went. We both walked out of the class very happy with two beautiful arrangements.

Febe Atienza Feb 2022

The teacher is helpful. The venue great.
Not great value for money as not much dried flowers to choose from with the flower arrangement I want, and I am probably expecting something unique Japanese floral arrangement as I already know the basic flower arrangement.
I am very disappointed that I did not check the back of my flower arrangement because the foam was not covered.

Naomi Diamond Feb 2022

I thoroughly enjoyed this class and was surprised that I created a beautiful masterpiece all thanks to Setsuko’s guidance. Setsuko gave background info on preserved flowers and then demonstrated how to arrange them whilst giving tips. There was a range of preserve flowers available to select a colour scheme. Definitely worth the money and you get to take your masterpiece home

I enjoyed my class so much! I was able to have every question answered and I was taught little tricks that can make such a big difference! It was such an amazing experience to be taught by a professional, she really opened me up to new colour schemes and techniques. Would definitely recommend

It was great that we got free reign on arrangement design choice and a variety of floral options to choose from. Downfall was there was little to no direction or explanation.
It was a little overwhelming with so many options, would be good to have some displays to “replicate”

It would also have been great to learn techniques and receive a better understanding of preserved vs dried plants as the session progressed

Overall good. I’d expect a bit more dried flower selection and colors to choose from and a bit more instruction on different dried flower styles.

Cute workshop, lots of light and smells amazing.
Teacher was generous with materials and mum & I came home with a stylish addition to our home.

Angus Laws May 2021

Definitely good value considering the amount of materials provided and what an arrangement of a similar size would cost at a retail store.
Not a step by step class, instead, the teacher provides loose guidance so you can create your own masterpiece. Every single arrangement in our class turned out beautifully, but all were very very different. It was a surprise date for me fiancé, and she loved it.
