THE WORKSHOP COLLECTION – NEW DATES!

COOKING WITH KATHY & KIM – We may have missed the Horsham Show but with restrictions lifted we can now support the activities of the upcoming Kannamaroo Festival.  This cooking workshop with local identities, Kathy Cross & Kim Driller, you’ll learn how to cook up a storm and also get to taste the delights cooked in front of your eyes!  Hosted in our workshop, there’ll be the buzz of the Kannamaroo Festival on the grounds as well.  This promises to be a great day out.   TICKETS HERE

FLORAL DESIGN & WINE – is brought to you by Rachel from Rane Flowers of Edenhope on Day 2 of the Kannamaroo Festival, which is the quieter day at the Maydale Reserve.  In this intimate setting you can choose from a boho style of flowers in a tin bucket, an unstructured bouquet or a flower crown while enjoying a grazing box and 2 glasses of wine or bubbles.

Bring your own creative spirit!  TICKETS HERE
