About this course

Christmas is here and it's time to decorate our homes. From your front door through the hall, sitting room and and dining room table, there will be flower arrangements for every area of your house. The arrangements will be modern and traditional in design. All abilities are welcome.

Homework is not a requirement of the course, but you will need to source flowers for your class each week.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and crafts people and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress.
