Floristry Fundamentals Course
Filled with essential skills and projects this one week course is the perfect introduction to the world of luxury floristry.
You will be guided by our expert tutor team every step of the way as you focus on the building blocks of the craft and establishing a strong foundation of floral know-how.
At the core of this module is an insight to retail floristry, with students having the opportunity to create a scope of hand-tied designs, meet suppliers and master gift-wrap techniques. These newfound floristry accomplishments will enable you to tackle more ambitious projects such as wreaths, vase design and culminating in a larger group finale towards the end of the week.
This one week course can be undertaken as a module on its own - or as part of the Four Week Career Course.
Suitable for - complete beginners and those looking to refamiliarise themselves with core skills.
