20 April 2020 


In South Island, New Zealand

14-25 March 2021

Dear members

The UK has been invited to send 10 delegates to take part in the above event. The Seminar will give attendees a chance to experience the host country’s culture, see floral art presentations and competitive work (which may involve judging), take part in workshops with top tutors and view wonderful scenery around the Seminar’s hubs in Christchurch and Queenstown in an atmosphere of fun and friendship along with other delegates within the WAFA family. 

The cost of the Seminar ONLY for shared accommodation has been estimated as approximately NZ$8,000 and single occupancy as NZ$10,000. Due to the New Zealand Government’s plans/rules for post lockdown in the months ahead, the programme and costs are subject to alteration. The WAFA NZ Host Committee suggests that WAFA members keep up to date by using the website www.wafanz.co.nz 

PLEASE NOTE: Delegates will be expected to pay for themselves, arrange their own insurance and organize their own travel to and from New Zealand at the appropriate time. If desired, delegates can make their own arrangements to extend their stay in New Zealand before and/or after the Seminar.

If interested, please submit your name and contact details to me by 30th May 2020, via vanessa@nafas.org.uk and a list will be prepared. Should there be more than 10 applicants then a ballot will take place. Some countries do not take up their whole allocation of places and if unsuccessful in the ballot, attendance may still be possible. 

With kindest regards

Yours sincerely

Dr. Christina Curtis
