Autumn Harvest: Weaving with nature

A masterclass with Coty Farquhar from Styling Magazine Australia in the stunning surrounds of Retford Park. Learn how to weave and style beautiful objects with natural materials from the Retford Park gardens.

Coty Farquhar, creative director/stylist, and founder of Styling Magazine Australia presents an exclusive full day styling masterclass to be held at stunning Retford Park in Bowral.

Under Coty’s expert tutelage, you will learn how to style and create beautiful objects for your home by weaving and constructing using an array of natural materials, flowers and foliage hand-picked and sourced from the historic gardens of Retford Park; yours to keep.

This special day includes a private tour of the house and the vivid autumnal gardens to inspire your creations. You’ll enjoy a delicious morning tea and a warming harvest-themed lunch and, to finish the day, a drink on the iconic front verandah overlooking the formal gardens of Retford Park.
