Floristry Career Course August 2019
Monday 5th - Friday 9th August 2019 (4 places left)
Level: Beginners/New Career Path
The Floristry Career Course is perfect for complete beginners - no practical floristry skills are required. It is ideal if you have also wanted to become a florist but have had no idea where to start. The Floristry Career Course is your starting place. Everyone attending the course is the same as you! Slightly nervous, but excited. From day one you will learn to create commercial designs. Building on your skills each day you will grow with confidence. Many of our students now run successful businesses whether from retail premises or working as a florist from home.
The aim of the course is to provide a foundation in floristry skills and techniques to create popular designs (designs that will sell!). We not only show you how to create the designs, but how to buy flowers, how to work out what to sell your designs for and how to market your creativity! An important part of the course is theory based covering setting up your own floristry business (whether from home or retail premises), buying stock, selling at retail and making a profit (along with a lot of other important business related topics!).
Floristry Career Course & Wedding Career Course combined
Combine the Floristry Career Course (August 5th - 9th) and the Wedding Career Course (August 12th - 16th). Perfect for students travelling long distances or from abroad. Students can choose to attend both courses one week after the other or at separate dates throughout the year. Each course covers completely different topics.
Held at The Cambridge Flower School, Newton Hall, Newton, Cambridge CB22 7ZE.
