Our courses look at the elements and principles of design and the use of colour. You will learn a wide variety of floristry skills by making at least one design each week. On some courses, this may rise to two or three, helping you build up confidence and speed throughout the year.

Level 2 courses will provide you with a sound technique as you learn the mechanics for each style of design, after which you may wish to progress to Level 3 and really put those techniques into practice by designing and creating unique and striking designs in given scenarios.
Clear demonstrations will be provided to help you learn new techniques, enhanced by guest speaker’s, external visits, and learning through art activities.
