Whether you wish to embark on a new career in floristry, either as business owner or as an employee, maybe to make designs for a one off event, or just want to 'test' your ability to learn floristry, Gill provides a number of different floristry options that include 1 day, 2 day and 3 day courses. You can also choose 'One-to-One' or ' You-&-Colleague' (or friend) - which helps to reduce your individual costs.
There are many types of course from wedding to funeral, venue decorating to corsages and buttonholes. Contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you, in discussion arrive at mutually agreeable dates. Gill can then talk you through your different options including the cost of tuition and cost of materials that will be required.
Until we are able to once again get together safely, Gill is creating a new series of "How To .." flower arranging videos to entertain, to inspire, to educate and remind ourselves of the beauty of this art. These designs were created using available garden materials and everything we flower arrangers love to hoard, or using everyday objects in different, flower arranging, ways.
Help with school work; let´s Explore and make Craft projects at home. Whilst schools are closed Gill wanted to help our family members with their new huge task of teaching and entertaining their children at home. Then friends were interested and as the list grew, we thought to make these ideas available for everyone to use.

Refreshing changes to the way you can learn.
A typical week for Gill includes floral art demonstrations (often booked 2 to 3 years in advance) and flower arranging workshops around the country. Gill also provides existing students with 'One-to-One' lessons where they study either flower arranging or floristry.
For new students and workshops Gill maintains a flexibility in her busy schedule so that she can take on new teaching and demonstrating commitments. As a new student all you have to do is contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you and in discussion arrive mutually agreeable dates. Gill can also walk you through the option on cost of tuition and materials that would be required.
Gill offers the flexibility of 'One-to-One' lessons so that students can learn what they need to learn to achieve their individual goals without making the time commitment expected of them if they were otherwise to attend traditional college courses. Gill lessons are all about concentrated practical learning Student goals can, for example, be to achieve a higher practical grade in their floristry exams or to improve their creative skills when they design their next floral design.
Workshops provided by Gill can be held at your local venue or run for your group of friends and often by businesses who wish to help their staff develop new skills; banqueting and hotel staff come to mind. There are just so many people that do not have the time to attend the traditional longer term college courses yet really love making floral designs and want to do something new, refreshingly different and one day workshops are a very good solution.
You choose when; from available dates. The college's website depicts many different courses, that have been run previously, as a source of the variety of subjects that you can learn. Armed with an understanding that you can organise your next lesson as either a One-to-One, or as a Workshop, your next best step is to call Gill to discuss what you have done so far, what you would like to do next, where and when it could be taught. Gill in return can clarify any questions that you have, offer available suitable dates and advise the likely cost of materials and cost of tuition.
