This course is the perfect introduction into floristry for those with no prior experience or those wanting to refresh their skills.
The art of floristry is enduring and in this class we will explore both traditional and contemporary styles, with an emphasis on natural looking arrangements. Each lesson begins with a demonstration by the tutor, followed by a workshop-style tutorial during which students create their own arrangements under guidance. This hands-on approach allows mastery of important techniques, under the guidance of a tutor, in a relaxed and informal environment. Classes are kept small to allow quality training.
This is a private course structured for those looking to gain practical floral experience without completing a Certificate II, III and IV in Floristry. An Acknowledgement of Achievement certificate will be issued to students completing the course.
