Looking for a general overview of floristry and have no idea what course you really need or want to do?  The school’s one day beginners floristry 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?

The Beginners Taster Workshop is an ideal stepping stone onto these courses:

"Absolutely brilliant day!  I have never done anything like this before, or any floristry before, I can't believe how much I have learnt from one day.  The teaching was just the right pace and everything was done thoroughly and with care.  It has been such a therapeutic and lovely day and we were made to feel so at ease.  Thank you!"
