PROFILE

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.

Loved the class. Setsuko gave us a little information about Japan and how Ikebana evolved. This was very interesting. Setsuko was very clear in her instructions and very helpful and patient. She showed us how to create something quite beautiful from very little. I recommend the Ikebana class with Setsuko. It would be a fun thing to do with a group of friends.

I have been wanting to learn Ikebana since high school and after 30+ years i finally did it and i am glad i did. It was group of 4 people in the class and it was so much fun. The teacher is a very pleasant person and was very helpful. I could see that she knows what she is talking about and has a knack for the flowers/arrangement. We learnt 2 arrangements and was very happy to take home and display. Overall it was a memorable experience.

We very much enjoyed the class and were happy with it being a bit more laid back in terms of allowing creativity rather than sticking doggedly to ikebana rules.

Great and down to earth woman, that takes her time to explain everything possible about what is carried out and involved when creating/arranging Ikebana style flowers.

To be repeated!

Setsuko, was a very calm and peaceful teacher. She has very beautiful flower shop that has the sweetest of flower smells.

The place was full of interesting branches, flowers and leafs to choose from.

It was a very lovely 2 hours to escape into something creative

It was a wonderful experience. The teacher was very friendly and welcoming. An interactive and well-planned class.
5

• Mar 2019


Excellent class! The teacher was lovely and the class was both suitable for both beginnings and more advanced florists. My only suggestion would be to give the students more freedom with their flower choice but perhaps that is a suggestion for a more advanced class! Love love loved it!
5

• Mar 2019


Excellent value course. Setsuko our teacher gave enough information but not too much. We tried 2 designs and I was very pleased and enthused with what I learnt in 2 hours.
5

• Mar 2019


Great hands on demo and background thrown in. Would have been great if we got to keen the whole arrangement in the pot and all not just the flowers
5

• Mar 2019


The class was small and very fun! We made two arrangements and was taught a little bit of history. At the end she showed us different ways we can do arrangements and more modern take on ikebana. Very attentive teacher!
5

• Mar 2019


Setsuko was an amazing teacher and helped us create beautiful arrangements. The class was held in her lovely little shop and we were treated with tea and sweets. She provided us with fresh flowers from the markets, which we were able to take home afterwards.
5

• Mar 2019


Our teacher was very gentle, informative and gave great assistance. A good number (4 first time students) attended. The space wood be too small for more. All the beautiful flowers/plants were of the best quality and we got to take them home. This was great as we could try and "rebuild" our arrangements at home. I can't believe how much I learnt in such a small amount of time. The gentle urgeing from our teacher with her demonstrations of shape, height. balance, texture, etc was very enlightening.
5

• Mar 2019


A fabulous class! Setsuko was a lovely and kind teacher and was passionate about her craft. She was welcoming and accommodating and left us with tips that we can take away with us to create our own arrangements in future building on what we learned in class. It was also great that Setsuko took the time to explain the cultural background to us to begin the class and also to share her immense general floristry knowledge with us. I would highly recommend this class!
5

• Mar 2019


What a delightful way to spend an Saturday afternoon - surrounded by flowers and learning the art and brief history of Ikebana with Setsuko, our teacher. Less is definitely more when creating a Ikebana arrangement. Great class - thank you Setsuko.
5

• Feb 2019


Ikebana with Setsuko was delightful. On entering the cosy, sweet smelling flower shop, you start to get a sense of simplicity and beauty. Class was fun and well instructed and left me with a desire to do more of this wonderful pastime.
Thoroughly wonderful!

Setsuko also had a special area for us to take photos of our finished art!
5

• Feb 2019


I highly recommend this great class. Setsuko is a wonderful teacher, putting the whole class at ease, greeting us with green tea and red bean cake. I joined the class with my mum and sister for a girls afternoon and we had a great time making two Ikebana arrangements under the encouraging of of Setsuko. Highly recommend.

The teacher has great flower arranging skills, but the 2 hours paid for was not maximised to d full. The class finished early n I was eager to learn more but after 1 bouquet arrangement that was it we could go.

Most bouquets completed were done by the teacher, so it was not hands on.
4

• Feb 2019


An authentic teacher and a gentle introduction to Ikebana in a calm and beautifully fragrant workroom. Setsuko is clearly very knowledgeable and talented. More time on the history and principles of Ikebana would have been even more interesting. Her demonstrations and explanations for slight changes to the placement of plants in our arrangements helped our understanding. A very interesting two hours. Thank you Setsuko.
5

• Feb 2019


I had a wonderful time in the class, and a great experience! I now know some basics for creating my own Japanese flower arrangements at home. The venue is in a pretty flower shop, we sat around the table and were given japanese tea and some snacks on arrival which was nice. The teacher was lovely and informative, she also gave us a brief history on Ikebana and answered any questions we had about Japan. For me the class was good value for money, I was able to learn two types of ikebana following the teacher's arrangements and then create my own arrangement using whichever flowers & vase I wanted. There were opportunities to take lots of photos, asks questions and meet new people. It's definitely a skill that i'm glad I have now, can't wait to impress everyone with my Ikebana! thank you
4

• Feb 2019


Lots of flower variety was provided. The teacher clearly shared her 1 technique or main principle to apply with the flower bouquet arrangement. She completed the steps till packaging or wrapping. The,quality of flowers ab, rest if materials are of at par quality. The class though ended quickly. We could have used the remaining time to learn more ideas or have a 2nd go of practice. Though the instructor has explained that it varies or is dependent on the pace of the students.
5

• Feb 2019


Setsuko was very friendly and knowledgeable of Japanese History as well as flower arranging. We really enjoyed our class and learned alot. Thanks Setsuko.
5

• Feb 2019


Setsuko was excellent. She took the time to provide the historical, cultural and spiritual context of Ikebana. She explained the two arrangements, including the why, very well and gave good feedback to ensure ours were Ikebana-ish. All materials were provided, the venue was excellent...overall a great day out and great value!!

5

• Feb 2019


Really enjoyed the class. Made us all realise that you can create amazing designs with only a few flowers. You don't even need to spend money on flowers. Just use some from your garden. Highly recommend the class for those who love a flower arrangment that you can afford to have everyday! All you need is a pair of scissors,a nice vase & the kenza block.

I really enjoyed a great afternoon with Setsuko Sennsei. She was friendly and kind, and was always there to help you with your work. We started with the background of ikebana flowers in Japan, then learnt two different ways of arranging ikebana flowers. We have plenty of time to complete our own works. Great teacher, great class, great time!

It is a beautiful venue and we worked with equally beautiful flowers! The teacher was very knowledgeable and helpful! A very tranquil class!

Our teacher was lovely and made the morning very relaxing. She showed us what to do and then helped us get to a final bouquet we were happy with. A lovely space to have the class and a great cafe next door too
5

• Nov 2018


Setsuko was an engaging and patient teacher. Her studio was utterly charming and really emphasised the theme of the class. For the amount of pieces we made and flowers we used the price was more than reasonable. I highly recommend this as an introduction to ikebana and has certainly encouraged me to continue.
5

• Nov 2018


Teacher Setsuko is super lovely&informative.Big choice of seasonal flowers.Cosy space.Lots of fun.Highly recommend!
5

• Oct 2018


The ikebana class was very enjoyable, and we were able to recreate the flower arrangements at home. Setsuko has a lovely manner and gives helpful tips and feedback. Her short background on Japanese culture and history was relevant and interesting. The class was in her beautiful flower shop,, and the flowers were really fresh and varied. We learned some principles of ikebana that we can apply to any arrangements, and learned to appreciate this art form.
5

• Oct 2018


The teacher was fantastic, helped and guided through myself and the group on arranging the bouquet.
5

• Oct 2018


Setsuko was a great teacher - she discussed the history of Ikebana which was very interesting and then demonstrated some principles. There was so much variety of flowers and leaves to choose from and nothing seemed to be off limits. She discussed her craft with ease and provided some useful corrections to my attempts. I will look out for some other interesting classes in the future.
5

• Oct 2018


Had a great time. Had a lot of fun and also learnt the basic principles of ikebana. Setsuko is a very good teacher and explained it in a way that was easy to grasp. Would highly recommend.
5

• Oct 2018


A really wonderful, relaxing experience. The shop was beautiful and the flower selection stunning. Setsuko was a patient and knowledgeable teacher who really taught the art of ikebana as a soulful experience. It was great how she also shared some Japanese history to give you context for the development of Japanese culture. I thought that it was very reasonably priced as well. Thanks for a lovely afternoon!

5

• Sep 2018


Wonderful class with a fun and interesting teacher. We made 3 different displays from gorgeous flowers and also got to take them home. Excellent class.
4

• Sep 2018


Setsuko is a very sweet teacher and has a personal approach. She's knowledgeable and picked out a good mix of flowers for us to work with.

The class only lasted for 1.5h (we put together one bouquet each) and wasn't as informative as I would have hoped. I would have liked to get to know a few more techniques for how to make flower bouquets. Maybe the teacher was a bit busy as two separate classes ran at the same time but she also forgot to bring out the tea she offered us when the class stared.

Overall a fun experience which I can recomend for someone looking for a fun thing to do.
5

• Sep 2018


We went to Setsuko's ikebana class as a gift for my mum's birthday who has been wanting to do an ikebana class for ages, and it did not disappoint! Setsuko was a wonderful teacher and we had a really great time learning how to arrange and maintain balance in our ikebana arrangements. We got to use lovely spring flowers and take them home, and it was really a great experience! Highly recommended.
5

• Sep 2018


Thank you Setsuko for a great class. We did three different Ikebana arrangements, learning different techniques for different flowers and styles. I am taking my blossoms home to practise! Feeling very inspired.
5

• Sep 2018


A great introduction to ikebana. The venue for the class is a florist shop and is an ideal size for 4 or 5 students.
Setsuko, the instructor, gave a short history of the art and then gave insight through practical involvement and individual encouragement.
Fabulous selection of vases, kenzan and flowers.

5

• Apr 2018


I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop. With all materials provided, Setsuko guided us on how to create our own masterpiece. Being in a small group, it was easy to watch and listen to instructions. I appreciate how she observes and checks every individual's creation and gives feedbacks to ensure we do the right thing. Setsuko is very passionate and artistic..and most of all she is very willing to share her knowledge and experience to newbies like me
5

• Apr 2018


The place is cozy, full of flowers and the moment I went inside I smelled the flowers and it made me feel good.
The materials were already set up, so it was easy to follow the instructions for start it.
The teacher gave as an introduction and then we start making our arrangement.
I went by public transport which is not a good alternative for this one, as the bouquet is very big for carrying on the bus.
Well, at the end was a lovely rainy morning. I felt so good that I wanted it not to end! It seemed it was short for me :)
5

• Apr 2018


I absolutely loved it , as I am a kinaesthetic learner I need to do things in order to learn .
I loved Setsuko and her wisdom , even being unwell she ran the class well ..
5

• Apr 2018


I can say that I got the essential theoretical and hands on training on basket flower arrangement from Setsuko even in just one session because she was concise in her teaching and provided constructive feedback. The session was worth it as it was not only informative but was also definitely fun!

I went with a group of 3 girls and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely In the beautiful Glebe venue where the light-filled class room is surrounded and lightly scented by fresh flowers. From the mini history lesson on where Ikebana comes in the beginning of the class to the hands-on flower arrangement with Setsuko's assistance where you can let your imagination run wild. Will definitely recommend this workshop to everyone!
