Handcrafters of extraordinary experiences, masters of floral genius and trendsetters in all things gorgeous.

A hands-on industry education experience from Ivy & Bleu. In 2018 students with creative flair began to flock our studio spaces to learn all we had to teach about the amazing world of Weddings & Events. With hands-on courses about everything from floral preparation to coordination and styling, we now give you the opportunity to join us in our boutique space to create something amazing. These small intimate classes will give you the opportunity to get involved with our experienced educators and expand your knowledge through fun learning activities. Different to our online courses, students have an open forum to ask and learn in addition to being part of a working photoshoot to help overcome the hardest of obstacles for new styling businesses – building content.
