How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
What do I need to bring with me?
For the first session it is intended to produce a Vertical arrangement. Please bring scissors and secateurs suitable for cutting plant material, 5 to 7 single flowers (depending on size) such as single Carnations, Gerbera or single Chrysanthemums and some foliage to include some largish leaves in keeping with the size of the flowers. Container: a low bowl or dish, round or square (which may or may not be a visual part of the design), pen, notepad and table covering. A camera would also be useful. Floral foam and basic mechanics will be available to purchase in class. There will be the additional costs each week of providing materials for the practical arrangements.
