We offer day and night classes for the Floristry Diploma Course. This gives you a unique opportunity to learn all aspects of floristry and flower arranging. You need no special skills or previous knowledge of floristry. Every florist was once a beginner.
In our floristry course we will personally guide you step-by-step, flower by flower, how to make beautiful floral designs and flower arrangements. Once you are shown the basic rules in flower arranging you will be delighted with the results you will achieve right from the very first lesson.
Floristry is creative and fun! In our flower arranging classes you will discover you have talents you didn’t know you had.
The floristry course is designed so the beginner can follow it with ease, but anyone already involved in floristry will find the course extremely beneficial in furthering their knowledge.
