Intermediate Floral Course
We are bringing something new to the table. These courses will challenge the way we currently look at floral education.
You will be nurtured in small groups through each of the course blocks – making unique blooms each week, learning about and connecting with the creative within and encouraged to think about the how and why behind what you are making.
We stand out from the crowd – we offer a thoughtfully considered and curated product. Our courses are generous – you will have the flexibility to choose from diverse product every time you learn and you will create with your own sense of style.
You will actually make beautiful things!
You will get to choose from beautiful extra 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! We want you to love learning flowers and offer a relaxed setting where you will feel comfortable to express yourself.
We also foster a true sense of community amongst students and celebrate your success with group events such as long table dinners and exhibitions.
