Funeral Flowers for Beginners Intensive


 Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd March 2018                                             

10am - 4pm 

Funeral tributes are an important part of floristry design.  For many florists they account for the "bread and butter" of their work.  It is also extremely satisfying and can be a very creative area of floristry.  

This course is suitable for complete beginners or those who have experience of gifting or wedding floristry, but would like to learn to create funeral tributes.    Complete beginners welcome.

"Absolutely brilliant; learnt a lot in a precise easy to understand manner with plenty of practical hints and tips. Sarah is an excellent teacher supported by Gussie. Fab cake, lunch and lots of enjoyment. Cannot wait until the next course......"
Helen Pettit | Beginner Funeral Flowers | November 2017

"Once again I thoroughly enjoyed my course!  I fee quite confident in doing some funeral work now.  Cannot wait to another course.  Love it, love, love it.  Thank you so much.  I'll be back again soon."
