1st Place Championship Class by Debbie Skroza - Plus Best Use of Colour

The West Australian Floral Art Society Inc meets to cultivate an appreciation of flowers and floral design and further develop the skills of creative floral design among its members by friendly competition at its meetings, with monthly demonstrations and periodic workshops.

 

VISITORS ARE MOST WELCOME to attend our meetings (a $7 Visitors fee applies) and share a floral afternoon where members stage beautiful floral designs in a variety of classes (approx 45 designs).  Qualified Floral Art Judges assess & award 1st, 2nd & 3rd place certificates & provide 'constructive feedback' on designs.  

 

Floral Demonstrations are conducted during the afternoon providing important information and inspiration on two subjects. A friendly cup of tea & light refreshments are then offered to members and visitors.
