Floral Short Course
We are bringing something new to the table…CREATIVE EDUCATION.
Our floral short course is unique in the industry. We stand out from the crowd by offering a thoughtfully considered and curated product. Our course is generous – you will use premium produce, beautiful vessels and accessories every time you learn, that you will get to keep.
Join like minded creatives in a small group making beautiful blooms each Saturday afternoon during the course from 1pm – 3.30pm for four weeks. We foster a true sense of community amongst students, we want you to love learning flowers and offer a relaxed setting where you will feel comfortable to express yourself. See kind words below from previous participants.
You will make your own creation every week that you will be so proud of using SUSTAINABLE products and foam free designs. You will get to experiment with the product each week to personalise your design, we believe these personal touches matter. You will be encouraged to not just ‘copy’ what we do, unless of course you want to!
No experience is required to join this course. Suitable for anyone who loves flowers from absolute beginners to more experienced florists wanting a refresh and for those in aligned industries keen to gain more confidence with flowers (for example interior designers, stylists etc)
If you ever have to miss a lesson all your flowers, fixings, vessels and instructions will be saved for you to collect so you don’t miss out.
