The Flower basics course is the perfect introduction to floristry for those without prior experience of arranging flowers. It is also well suited to those wanting to refresh skills.
In this course we cover all the basic aspects of Floristry. These are private classes for students looking to gain practical floral experience. A Certificate will be issued on completing the Basic Aspects of Floristry.
The Art of Floristry is an old Tradition. We will explore both traditional and contemporary styles, with an emphasis on flowers looking natural. Each lesson consists of a demonstration by the tutor, followed by a workshop-style tutorial where students create their own arrangements. This allows the student to master the techniques of the lesson, under the guidance of the tutor in a relaxed informal environment. Classes are kept intentionally small to allow quality tuition.
