Motueka Floral Art Circle

Motueka Floral Art Circle meets once a month to share ideas, create floral designs, and learn new techniques and concepts. Each meeting has a separate theme and several workshops are included in the year's programme.

The club is affiliated to the Floral Art Society of New Zealand, which produces two high quality editions of a magazine each year, holds an annual conference and sponsors regional workshops. All the clubs in the Nelson Marlborough West Coast area get together twice a year for workshops and demonstrations.

The objective of the Floral Art Circle is to provide a forum for those interested in creating art with flowers and plants to meet together share ideas learn new techniques and concepts and provide a service to the community.

Motueka Floral Art Circle and Friends this year presents a Floral Theater to support Daffodil Day and the Cancer Society Fundraising appeal. Admission $15.00 - there will be ticket sales early August, available from Westrupp Jewellers. Come and watch the designers build the styles before your eyes. The demonstration will feature Daffodills and other spring flowers.
