Floristry Career Course March 2022
Monday 14th - Friday 18th March 2022
Level: Beginners/New Career Path
The Floristry Career Course is our most popular course. It is fantastic to see so many of our students going on to setup their own floristry businesses! The Floristry Career Course is aimed at complete beginners - no practical floristry skills are required. It is ideal if you have always 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.
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!).
Held at The Cambridge Flower School, Newton Hall, Newton, Cambridge CB22 7ZE.

"Great! I wasn't expecting the course to be as comprehensive as it was. I feel I have covered so much ground and had a really good oversight of everything. It has definitely helped me to figure out how I want to work and in which area. Sarah and Emma were a brilliant team Knowledgeable, kind and really willing to help. It's been an enjoyable week ."
