Introduction to Floristry (1 Day)

Our 'Introduction to Floristry' day class is a practical experience day for those looking to have a career in Floristry or just wishing to dip their toe into the Floristry world. This is a jam packed day starting with a tour of our facilities so you can really experience how we work. 

We will then move onto why and how we condition our flowers in preparation for the days arrangements. You'll make two arrangements to take home these include a beautiful seasonal bouquet and a seasonal table arrangement. Each arrangement will be demonstrated first with group support and 1:1 guidance. We'll look at the flowers selected and the roles they play in each design before wrapping them to create your own bouquet. 

Light refreshments are provided over lunch and feel free to bring your own 'pack up'. Over lunch we'll have time to talk about the morning and provide a brief presentation on using wholesalers. 

The afternoon will be spent working on a table arrangement, looking at a range of mechanics and how best to use your flowers economically. We'll then round the day up with taking photographs of your creations to start your portfolio off!

What to bring:- We provide all the materials required for your session. Please wear casual clothing in layers as the room can vary in temperature. Stools are provided at each workbench but you may wish to stand so a sturdy, comfortable pair of shoes is essential.

Along the way we recommend taking notes, although we do have some notes provided for you to take away with you.

Refreshments:- we have a range of teas, ample coffee and fresh juice. We always provide a range of snacks including Gluten Free. If you have any allergies or specific dietary requirements please contact us to discuss further. 

You'll also have exclusive access to our shop whilst onsite should you wish to purchase any Floristry items, gift-ware or vouchers.
