The Floristry Career Course is perfect for complete beginners - no practical floristry skills are required. The Floristry Career Course is our most popular course with many of our students going on to setup their own floristry businesses either in retail premises or from workshops at home! 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.
