What do I need to join the course
This course is suitable for those who have already completed Beginners classes with us or have quite extensive experience in basic floristry techniques already. If you have not attended a beginners class but think this may be suitable for you, please contact the centre to discuss this before enrolling to check suitability.
Complete beginners with no experience in Floristry should attend one of our beginners courses.
It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity. Students will need to participate fully to get the most out of the course. If you need to bring a carer with you or be accompanied by another person please ask to speak to the Programme Manager before you enrol.
