We are very proud and excited to announce our involvement in the Woollahra Council annual Garden Week, in September.
I am honoured to have been asked to do a presentation.
I have had to write a bio for inclusion in the advertising material...
This is what i came up with...
Lisa mattock is the co-owner and creative director of the award winning florist and homewares store Dragonfly Floral Design, and the recently opened Dragonfly Outdoor, which specialises in garden accoutrements.
She has been a florist for 7 years, avid collector and admirer of homewares, stationary and "found" goodies since she was a little girl.
She has many fond memories of being in the garden mashing petals together to make "perfume", with a pocket full of interesting pebbles and feathers.
Or was often to be found organising her crayola collection to coordinate with her mum's jars full of saved buttons, beads and sequins.
Now I am working on the content for the presentation.
I'm thinking of doing some techniques and ideas that will mean the participants get a chance to do some hands on floristry. Hints and tips that they can take away and use at home.
Other presenters for the weeks festivities include chef Matt Moran, gardening author Colleen Morris and landscape designer Steve Batley.
It promises to be a week of good fun!!
Stay tuned for details on booking tickets...
