Workshop in Australia – Day 1
What an incredible adventure this has been so far!
Last Sunday Holly Chapple and I met at the airport in San Francisco and flew out to Sydney where we were so warmly received by Michelle Van Eimeren and her assistant Linda . I met Michelle in March 2013 at the Chapel Designers Conference in New York and we hit it off! The prospect of spending 2 weeks with her and Holly was thrilling!
We arrived in Sydney at 6:30 am on Tuesday, and later that morning we went to Apack, a wholesaler that sells supplies – or sundries as they call it here. The rest of the afternoon we visited with Craigio Scott at East Coast Wildflower Farm and with Barry and Robert Luff at their flower farm in Kulnura. The local flora is incredibly stunning and gorgeous! and even though winter is about to start, there was still so much blooming in the fields.
Thank you Michelle for taking the great pictures!
