This highly practical course is designed for complete beginners wanting to explore a wide range of floristry styles and techniques. Each week we will work on a new design, developing skills along the way in tying, wiring and arranging flowers in a selection of mediums.

Over the seven weeks you will produce a variety of adaptable designs in both traditional and contemporary styles, from hand tied bouquets to seasonal arrangements for the home.

Looking at the basic principles of floristry, as well as how to care for and condition fresh materials, this course is a fun and fantastic start for any beginner wanting to dive straight into the world of practical floristry. The range of designs covered will also provide an excellent opportunity to start building a portfolio to be proud of!
