elements and principles of floristry
the importance of colour
conditioning and selecting flowers
There are beautiful areas around Rose Cottage where you can photograph your creations so that you can start to build up your portfolio.
This course is particularly useful for students who are considering going into retail, wedding or event floristry. I aim to give you the best possible start in your new venture and will share tips and tricks of my trade.
Students who attend this course may wish to progress onto my Wedding Floristry course or choose some of the alternative course/workshop options available. After completing a series of courses, workshops or one to one tuition, students can progress to starting their own business as well as working in the floristry industry in other capacities.
This course is designed for beginners. For students who have some experience you may wish to take part in some of our other courses and workshops designed for students with some floristry experience.
The atmosphere at Rose Cottage is relaxed informal learning using beautiful flowers, taught by me – a qualified and experienced florist and tutor.
We will start at 10.30am and finish at approximately 4.30pm

There is opportunity to take photos of your designs using the garden wall at Rose Cottage as a backdrop.
Flowers and containers are included to create your designs. I also provide an apron and tools for your use.
