Horticulture & Floristry

Do you want to develop your skills or build a career in floristry?

Based in Suffolk Rural, we offer a selection of part-time courses for students wishing to enter the business of floristry, using practical-based lessons to cover a variety of arrangements and events.

Whether you’re hoping to create your own business or become a workplace team member, these courses are perfect for anyone looking to start their career or build upon their skills.

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.
