McQueens Flower School has been welcoming students from all over the world onto its Career Course for the past 24 years. Global leaders in floristry education - the flagship programme, designed by our experts not only distils the most essential skills but provides an unparalleled springboard for personal creative development.
Each week, the curriculum will focus on a key area of the industry - beginning with the fundamental skills, followed by events and celebrations, weddings and culminating in large-scale installations. Central to the course structure is an exclusive insight into the daily work of McQueens Flowers - one of the flower industry’s foremost luxury brands for 30 years. Led by our expert tutor team - your floral journey will be guided by experienced practitioners who have extensive first-hand experience creating the most beautiful floral displays - whether it’s been for show-stopping weddings or 5-star hotels.
In 2021 the school relocated from its Bethnal Green workshop to new purpose-built studios in the heart of Mayfair, truly enabling students to experience first-hand the work we do as part of their learning.
The modular programme is completely flexible and can be taken in a four-week block or as individual weeks to fit around other commitments.
