Course Outline:

This course is the perfect introduction into floristry with no prior experience.

The art of Floristry is enduring and in this class we will explore the use of Colors & Textures with an emphasis on natural looking arrangements.

Each lesson begins with a demonstration by the tutor, followed by a workshop-style tutorial during which students create their own arrangement under guidance. The hands on approach allows mastery of important techniques, under the guidance of a tutor, in a relaxed and informal environment. Classes are kept small to allow quality training.

We use a mix of both fresh and dried flowers so students get to see how different it is using both.

Lesson 1

Introduction to Flowers

The treatment and conditioning of both flowers and foliage. Flower tools and their uses. Students create their own tied posy.

Lesson 2

In this class we learn how to make a Gift Hamper incorporating a Dried Posy of Flowers, filler and a small candle, finished with a ribbon and gift card.

Lesson 3

How to assemble a Ceramic Pot Arrangement of Flowers from start to finish, Techniques and the importance of color in Floral Arranging. Color Theory

Lesson 4

Exploring different ways to arrange Fresh Flowers in a vase for your home.
