Floristry Career Course May 2020
Monday 11th - 15th May 2020
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!).
Held at The Cambridge Flower School, Newton Hall, Newton, Cambridge CB22 7ZE.

"I have absolutely loved the course. I feel so much more confident in both floristry and how to start up my business. The support from Sarah and Claire has been priceless and all the handy tips they have learnt along the way will help. I can't wait to start the wedding course next week and to keep practising everything I have learnt."
