Floristry Career Course September 2019
Monday 9th - Friday 13th September 2019
Level: Beginners/New Career Path
The Floristry Career Course is our most popular course with many students going on to setup their own floristry businesses. The Floristry Career Course is perfect for 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. 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.

Well structured. Covered a good range of practical and commercial arrangements. I look lots of inspiration from the business sessions and the stories that came from you both! Your constant words of advice were invaluable.

Thank you so much for introducing and submerging me into the wonderful world of floristry. I have thoroughly enjoyed the week and the professionalism and conciseness of the course. Here's to you and to me and floristry.

Having no experience in floristry at all, I attended the class slightly apprehensive, would everyone else be more experienced, or have some form of training before? I shouldn't have worried everyone was at a similar level and the class took everything back to basics at a speed that I could keep up with. Both Sarah and Gussie are clearly very accomplished florists with a wealth of knowledge. I feel so much more confident to start my new career as a florist. Thank you x
