Wedding & Event Design


Thursday 20th - Saturday 22nd October 2022 (only 4 places left!)

10am - 4pm           

Level: Intermediate/New Skills       

New Updated Course for 2022 - completely sustainable! 

This three day course is ideal for anyone looking to offer wedding or venue design to their clients.   With so many venues opening their doors to both weddings and events there is huge scope for set dressing and designing large scale pieces that really do have that wow factor. 

Many of the designs you will create are based on eco-friendly construction methods using alternatives to traditional foam.   We use a variety of materials and tools including wood, chicken wire, staple guns, moss, biodegradable materials and so much more!

You will work individually and in groups to create the designs (as very often some large scale events are impossible to do on your own), from planning, logistics to implementation making the three days as realistic as possible. You will leave full of confidence to cope with any venue, marquee or large scale wedding.  This is an ideal opportunity to enhance your portfolio of work.

Suitable for those who have some/limited experience of floristry and are looking to widen their repertoire of skills - this is the course for you!  If you are unsure as to whether this course is suitable for you please do call us on 01223 655661.

During the 3 days you will work on the following designs:

  • Table runner and garlanding
  • Hanging chandelier & suspended designs
  • Eco-friendly archways and column designs
  • Mantelpiece arrangements
  • Large scale statement designs on tall pedestals

You will leave full of confidence to cope with any venue, marquee or large scale event.

This is an ideal opportunity to enhance your portfolio of work.
