Gorgeous Renelle from Pop Up Succulent Shop is generously giving away two tickets to one of her workshops so you and a friend can have a great afternoon together creating something beautiful. I tell you what, I desperately want to keep this prize for myself!
Recently I was invited to my very first succulent workshop with the beautiful Renelle at Pop-Up Succulent Shop to say I had a brilliant afternoon would be such an understatement.
Upon arriving you are met with a glass of bubbles and a delicious cheese & fruit platter (she won me over right there!). Before long I forgot I was in a class and it felt much more like I was in my friend’s lounge room having a few drinks and learning some new things about gardening.
Renelle was patient and explained perfectly what we had to do. She answered ALL my probably ridiculous questions and even helped me when I realised things for my kokedama were not quite going according to plan!
My mum came with me and quickly we made friends with the other people at the workshop, that’s the thing you see it was relaxed and friendly. There were no strangers just friends we were yet to meet.
Renelle supplies everything you need to make two kokedamas and she even gives some good hints on how to wrap other plants you buy to make great gifts or house plants.
I am far from a good gardener but bloody hell I was proud when I came home and showed the hubs and kids what I had made. I now very proudly have two kokedamas in my kitchen and each and every time I look at them I get all warm and fuzzy and remember the great afternoon I had.
Make sure you grab a pal and check out one of the workshops offered by Renelle at Pop-Up Succulent Shop. She holds a range of workshops including kokedamas, wreath and general potting classes.
You can also have a chat to Renelle at many markets and events she attends around our area.

The fabulous peeps over at Fox & Willow will be hosting two workshops next weekend – Saturday 30th November and Sunday 31st November if you are looking for a little pre-Christmas inspiration.
The first workshop will feature Natural Pampering Recipes for you and your home. Fox & Willow will teach you how to make scrubs, bath teas and room sprays; using simple ingredients in your pantry & garden.
The second will include ‘The Art of Gift Wrapping’ (just in time for Christmas!). The team will teach you how to wrap like a goddess using items found at home & in the garden.
Plus, because everyone loves a little show and tell you can take home with you a sample of each product you create on the day & a recipe collection of ideas.
Fox & Willow are a brilliant local business who excel through their intricate designs and brilliant creativity.
They are now holding workshops to allow you to jump on board and learn some of their very clever tricks!
Their very first workshop will be a Polymer Clay Masterclass. Here, you will be able to learn the basics about working with polymer clay, hand roll and carve your own beads, play with tools to learn about different effects that can be created, and lastly assemble your own finished handmade project. They have assured us that it is suitable for everyone (including beginners).
