Floral and hardy

The highly anticipated 2016 TAFE NSW Floral Display exhibits at Sydney's Royal Easter Show

Floristry students from four different TAFE NSW Institutes will be involved in the exhibit, which will be a riotous display that celebrates the colours, textures and varieties of Australian flora.

With a theme of 'Art in Bloom', the students will be involved in the designing, planning and construction of the exhibits, which will be located inside the Southee Pavillion. The four TAFE NSW Institutes competing for the floristry crown are TAFE Illawarra, represented by Yallah Campus, The Northern Sydney Institute, represented by Ryde Campus, South Western Sydney Institute (SWSi), represented by Padstow College and Sydney TAFE, represented by Ultimo College.

In this creative intersection of nature and art, the students will have their work cut out for them, creating eye-catching displays totally contained within a 1.5m x 1.5m area, although the displays are allowed to be any height they wish.
