Kate is a passionate floral designer and event stylist, with a background in Interior Design and Photography, and a lifelong love of flowers inspired by her grandparents. 

Living and working in the Hunter Region with her fiancé, two cats, two dogs, a horse, five chickens and whatever birds and wildlife wander through on their endless travels. 

 Screen shot 2014-10-07 at 11.08.31 AM  Screen shot 2014-10-07 at 11.09.13 AM

Living simply and consciously is something Kate trying to do, by finding out how our individual actions contribute to the world we live in.

She aims to both reflect and protect the natural world around us, not just in style but also in her practices. Using a range of traditional and inventive techniques and methods, without relying on toxic or unsustainable products like floral foam and imported flowers laces with pesticides and chemicals.

Kate loves to use Australian grown, seasonal flowers and foliage in her arrangements, and aims to recycle her materials and recourses as often as possible. 

Follow Kate here as she is about to launch her new and exciting business adventure, Two Wild Hands.

By | Blog, Events | No Comments

Saturday 15th November 2014 :: 10am–5pm
With Wayne Thompson
Hosted by Hunter Design School
handlettering handlettering2
With an emphasis on doing rather than watching, we will introduce you to the world of expressive handlettering. You will start with some theory of humanist construction in type, followed by inspiring examples and discussion. You will then be plunged into a series of drawing exercises designed to improve your understanding of type. The afternoon allows you to create your own unique handlettered piece under the direct instruction of Wayne.
COST: $220.00 inc GST

For registration or more information, visit:

ABOUT THE TUTOR – WAYNE THOMPSON
Fascinated by letters since he was a teenager, Wayne began with rub-down lettering and worked as a signwriter, photographer and journalist before settling into the design profession in the late 1980s. After 17 years as Art Director in several advertising agencies, Wayne now works full-time as a type designer and teacher. Wayne’s long term aims are to always learn more about typography, and hopefully contribute an Aussie flavour to the world of type design.
