Welcome to my handmade treasure trove!

Hellllooo my darlings,

I'm Hayley Ryan, the sole creator and 33 year old cheeky natured human behind Ivy Trove.

I’m based in Mt Gravatt, Brisbane and I drive around in my van full of beautiful plants, pots, bit & bobs and of course my recycled cotton cords to bring you fun & creative workshops from Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay and surrounds!

 

I’ve always been a crazy plant lady looking for her next creative project. I’ve tried tons of creative ways to express myself - making dream catchers, candles, resin art, terrariums & sun catchers. - I've always been a handmade gift giver! In 2017, I was studying my Diploma of Horticulture and had a little side hustle designing and selling terrariums which led me to macramé via YouTube, I sat on the floor with the twine I had lying around and before I knew it, I had truly found myself completely hooked as it also helped with my mental health! It was more than just a creative pastime but a real passion.

 

Ivy Trove was born in October 2018 with my first handmade décor shop! Selling my pieces was a dream come true and teaching came naturally as I'm a massive people person and big talker; 5 months later I hosted my first workshop, created the pot hanger & wall hanging DIY Kits, Step by Step Tutorials, and the rest is history!

 

Since then, I’ve hosted over 100 workshops for public and private events both live online and in person as well as offering DIY kits with a filmed step by step tutorial. To name a few that have trusted me with their project; Woman's Day Magazine, NAIDOC Festival UQ, Ravenswood Woman in Art Campaign, Macquarie bank, Botanika Festival, Koala Eco, Google, NDIS association, Sexual Violence Centre, Mates4Mates, Deaf and the Alzheimer's Association QLD and the list continues to grow as I get to spread my love, laughter and passions further.

 

I use 100% recycled cotton cord, source local and recycled products where possible, I donate $1 for every public workshop ticket sold to Black Dog Institute and donate the left over cuttings and cardboard spools to local day cares & schools!

I have very much ridden the rollercoaster since covid but I absolutely refuse to let that break my spirit and beat me! There is an amazing and supportive community out there which I am so thankful to be a part of as well as my family, friends and past clients that support me endlessly which I am so lucky to have! 

Thank you for reading all the way down to here, I'm good for a chat anytime as you have probably gathered haha. If you want to have a squiz at some of the things I get to do, please jump onto my Instagram page @ivytrove. 

Feel free to get in touch with me anytime through the contact form, hello@ivytrove.com or on IG.

 

I can't wait to hopefully see you at an event soon.

Cheers, 

Hayley

100% recycled cotton

The cords I use during my workshops or for my pieces are 100% recycled cotton. 

Re-recycling donations

The left-over cords cutting and spools are donated to GC & Brisbane day care centres to be reused for their arts & craft.

Locally sourced

Supporting Australian as much as possible: pots, plants, wooden rings and driftwood

When you purchase from Ivy Trove, you can trust that it is an earth conscious, unique handmade creation that embraces my personal style, all of my care, OCD, love and passion! 

Oh, and about the name?

Ivy can flourish in almost all environments and on top of its beauty, it is well known for being a hardy plant. You can propagate from the same plant and each time it will grow a unique new colour and pattern, just like us. It is a fascinating plant and - you guessed it - one of my favourites!

A Trove is where you find valuable and delightful things. 

 

Here at Ivy Trove, I like to believe that you’ll discover new ways of igniting your passions and live creatively, always.
