If you wish to learn and develop the art of Flower Arranging, and want to be taught how to arrange flowers incorporating Contemporary floral design techniques then why not join one of my Contemporary flower arrangement classes? Each course covers correct and easy construction methods together with the application of the elements and principles of design to create varied flower arrangement design ideas from table flower arrangements to free standing floral designs. If you love flowers, but are new to flower arranging and would love to learn how to make flower arrangements, then why not enrol on one of my a beginners flower arranging classes? Flower Arranging is my passion and teaching floral design is so rewarding when I see my students enthusiastically taking the ideas and skills I teach into their next floral projects.
My intensive Floristry classes have been developed to focus on key Retail Floristry skills: wedding bouquets, funeral designs, venue décor, hand tieds and modern flower arrangements. Each Floristry course teaches you commercial Floristry skills for those wishing to become Florists or who wish to update and develop existing Floristry skills.
Why not read my Floristry credentials to appreciate the experience I have in teaching in Floristry as an experienced retail florist manager and fully qualified Floristry Lecturer.
Bespoke Floral Design courses, one to one courses, flexible and tailor made to suit individual or group learning needs are very popular and I am happy to discuss, design and teach specific Flower Arranging or Floristry designs, techniques and skills to satisfy your personal learning requirements. So why not phone or email me to discuss your individual learning goals?
As a NAFAS (National Association of Flower Arrangers) National Teacher and NAFAS Demonstrator I am happy to demonstrate to clubs or teach workshops and so have created a range of free videos demonstrating and teaching floral arrangement which can be experienced to all those who love flowers and floral design.
My range of books focus on “how to” make designs using inexpensive and easy to find materials for both flower arrangers and florists. Contemporary techniques, styles and methods are incorporated to show how easy it is to make designs with distinction and flair. My book “50 Techniques used in Contemporary Floral design” was written as a resource for all who love floral design who wish to add that special touch with a Contemporary technique or two but know not which one to choose.
