General recent awesomeness at The School!  Top left - cake and cookie decorating with Hello Naomi!, top right - Holly Hipwell and her Flower Bomb, bottom right - carnations for Flower Bomb making, bottom right - Megan gets styley with the paper straws.

If you are any kind of self respecting Australia-based blog reader I am pretty sure you would be totally across THE SCHOOL by now.  NO it is not the place you take unaccompanied minors between the hours of 8.30am and 4.00pm on a weekday.  It is in FACT an amazing magical land of craft, design and styling,  a unique creative hub, with a diverse calendar of classes and workshops for young and old alike, and of course the whole crazy thing is the creation of Sydney stylist Megan Morton.  DO check out The School timetable and wonderful photo galleries of previous classes... too. much. awesome.

Now, as you also probably know, this coming Sunday May 13th is Mothers Day.  And because Megan Morton is one of the most excellent multi-tasking Mums in the business, she is planning one seriously brilliant Mother's day extravaganza!  Hold onto your hats, people.

The School Mother's Day Line-Up includes! :

- White Elephant Stall! - selling Jen Booth's sweet leather lockets, and fabulous flowers from Holly Hipwell / The Flower Drum!

- DIY badge-making

- Mother and Daughter tassel garland workshop with Tamara Maynes (this one is a ticketed workshop - book here!)

Of course also beautiful Koskela is right next door for a browse, and Kitchen by Mike will be cooking a Sunday Roast!  Brilliant.  Can you actually imagine in your wildest DREAMS a better way to spend Mother's Day?  No.  Me neither.

But it does get just a smidgen better. Dearest MM is offering a very special giveaway!  You could win a spot for you and your Mum at Tamara Maynes' Mother / Daughter Tassel Garland workshop on Mothers Day, AND also, two spots at Holly Hipwell's wildly popular Flower Bomb class on June 10th!  That's two of The School's most popular classes, for you and your Mum (or other much loved person).

To be in the RUNNING simply leave your comment on this post before 10.00pm tonight, Melbourne/Sydney time. A winner will be drawn at random and contacted by email tomorrow!

*UPDATE: Congratulations to Nicole (comment #19)!! Hope you and your mum have a fantastic Mothers Day at The School with Tamara Maynes and also at Holly Hipwell's Flower Bomb Class. Thanks again to Megan Morton and The School for this amazing giveaway!

Clearly this one is best for Sydney residents, HOWEVER if you are not in Sydney, you'll be pleased to know that these tickets are transferable to other people (but not to other classes).  Therefore, if you win, and you're not able to attend, you may pass your fantabulous prize onto your favourite Sydney-based mother / daughter team!

Thanks Megan for this sweet giveaway and the amazing general awesomeness that is THE SCHOOL.  You really are a national treasure.

Jen Booth's sweet mini leather lockets will be for sale at The School's White Elephant Stall this Sunday!
