How is the course material provided?
The course includes a large floristry manual for each term which includes the step-by-step practical lessons. Each manual also has hundreds of floristry and floral design tips and techniques with photos and illustrations. In addition to the lessons there are instructions on how to create many other unique floral designs. You will find each manual will be a valuable reference guide, during and after you have completed the course.
Each practical lesson is set out with very easy to follow step-by-step illustrated instructions with a colour photo of the completed design. You will have a pattern to follow with measurements on how long to cut each stems and exactly where to position them in each design.
There is an online video for each practical lesson so you can see the actual lesson being made. It is just like being in the classroom without the travelling involved!
You will learn the basic rules of balance and proportion in flower arranging. You will see wiring and taping, making ribbon bows, positioning flowers and foliage and finishing touches for each design. One of the advantages is you can watch the video at your own convenience, pause the video at any time and go back to watch any step again. Your student password will be included with your course materials. 
In the course we also include a Presentation Pack with free step-by-step instructions on how to create additional stylish modern floral designs.
YES! Floristry Supplies Are Included In The Course

All the floristry supplies for each practical lesson such as bowls, baskets, boxes, foam, bouquet holders, ribbon, cellophane, cards, wire and tape are included in the course.

Fresh flowers are not included with the materials – as you would appreciate, these would not last!
You do not have to use expensive flowers for your lessons, the positioning is the important thing.
Flowers such as carnations and chrysanthemums are ideal to use when you are first learning. These flowers last well and are easy to handle.
Flowers that are in season are suitable, as they are less expensive and you can often buy them at a weekend market at a good price.
If desired you can use silk flowers and foliage for your lessons so you will have a permanent sample for each design. We will include a silk flower and foliage price list and order form with the First Term materials.
The Online Videos Are Fantastic

The practical lessons have given me the confidence  to move ahead in my new studio. I appreciate  your feedback and excellent organisation and presentation of the course.”
P P, Course Graduate
