Looking for a general overview of floristry and have no idea what course you really need or want to do?  Our popular one day beginners floristry taster is designed to introduce you to floristry with lots of practise during the day.  During the day you will create a hand-tied bouquet, a buttonhole and an arrangement in floral foam to show you different techniques from the three main floristry areas: gift, wedding and funeral.  

Where can I go from here?
