Alyson Mowat Studio

Alyson Mowat Studio 5.0 (2)

I founded my botanical studio in 2013. Before this, I moved from South Africa to London to train and work as a graphic designer before studying garden design at the Oxford College of Garden Design. With a focus on hand-crafted artisan pieces, I like to draw on my passion for style and beautiful things when creating my verdant arrangements.

Alongside my creative practice, I also hold group and private planting workshops with the ethos of elevating plants to works of art.

My story is one of cultivation, curation and adventures across the globe in search of green inspiration. In my desire to celebrate nature yet remain firmly rooted in the urban jungle, I aim to create planting scenes and lush backdrops in city settings.

I also offer bespoke design services. My book Terrariums & Kokedama was published by Kyle Books in 2017.

Birthday surprise. Alyson was very welcoming and walked us through how to make our own terrarium. She is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Being complete novices, it was a treat to have Alyson guide us. Would thoroughly recommend to all.
