From bouquet and terrarium workshops to table arrangements and macrame wall hangings, we've got you covered.
Check http://www.foxandrabbit.com.au/workshops/ for full details of dates and upcoming workshops.
Terrarium workshop
Build your own indoor garden in just an hour and a half. This sweet little garden-in-a-glass workshop is perfect for those who enjoy their nature loving in low maintenance form.
Bouquet workshop
Kick off your boots and pull up a seat! We’re spilling the secrets and walking you through how to construct the perfect bouquet. This one is sure to make your heart sing. At Fox and Rabbit, we love nothing better than a gorgeous garden-style bouquet to celebrate unstructured and unkempt florals the way nature intended them. But surprise surprise there is method, intention and order behind this professedly relaxed style.
– All the materials and flowers / plants needed
– Gloves to keep those fingernails like new
– Take home step-by-step guide so you can do it over and over again
– Learn tips and tricks from the experts
– Plenty of question time. We hold nothing back!



Our workshops are designed for people with zero to medium skills in floral arranging. Our approach is very conversational and relaxed. While we teach on a foundation of the organic and unstructured style Fox and Rabbit is so well known for – a strong emphasis is placed on finding your very own groove and personal style in floral construction.

If you love flowers and want to know more about working with them – this workshop is for you.


It is our firm belief that everyone is creative. Some of us just have more practice at it than others. We are well-versed in bringing out the creativity in others, and have proven our above belief time and time again throughout our workshops.

We look forward to meeting with you and helping you discover the creative side you never knew you had, or put legs on what you already knew was possible, with the help of beautiful flowers.

As the peak body for writing and associated activities in WA, writingWA celebrates the achievements of our literary creators, provides a range of services to support emerging practitioners, and strives to bring West Australian writing to new audiences throughout this State and beyond.

  • Other:Arts


  • Arts:Literature


A diverse membership base representing the entire value chain from creation (writers’ centres and groups, professional associations such as the Society of Editors and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) to producers (publishers) and consumers (libraries, writers’ festivals, education providers, bookshops, etc) requires that writingWA understands and represents the needs of an extremely broad community.

The value chain also embraces emerging, established and elite writers – all of whom are of concern to writingWA.
Additionally, writingWA has an extremely large territorial responsibility, providing service delivery on a State-wide basis.
writingWA keeps our growing network of state-wide, interstate and international clients and colleagues informed of new West Australian publications and literary successes via a range of integrated digital communications products including writingWA's website and free fortnightly e-newsletter, writingWA's YouTube channel, and other networked social media.

writingWA receives principal funding from the Western Australian Government through the Department of Culture and the Arts, and from the Federal Government through the Australia Council, its art funding and advisory body.

Increasingly writingWA is reliant on the support of individuals within our community who share our passion and commitment to West Australian literature. Their donations enable writingWA to deliver programmes that would otherwise be beyond our reach. These individuals are our Literary Lions.
