"Absolutely amazing! I ahve really felt like this course has given me a great foundation to build on, and hopefully one day, start my own floristry business. Both Sarah and Gussie were welcoming, informative and full of knowledge. All the sessions were easy to follow and to remember when it came to recreating each piece at home!
