Trading her pen for a pair of gardening scissors, former advertising executive Sarah Lim followed her love for all things beautiful when she founded Poppy Flora Studio in 2000. Lim and her team handcraft every bouquet you see in the store. Don’t expect uniformly rounded globes of roses – each flower is allowed to curve and bend to create an airy, bountiful and vibrant mix that looks as if, as Lim describes, they’re ‘dancing’.
Immerse yourself in the Andante Floral Foundation Course at the serene studio at Park Lane and let your inspiration for floral art bloom. Sarah will usher beginners into the world of floristry by touching on skills needed to create a stunning centrepiece such as texturizing, colour composition, and arrangement layering. The course is made up of four one-hour lessons (USD$600, including a photography session and four masterpieces).
