Foundation Floristry is a two week course, and the first module of our iconic Career Course.
On this course, you will learn all the skills needed to work and run a commercial floristry business: as we take you through all the steps needed to create beautiful hand-tied bouquets in different styles, floral foam arrangements in an array of different shapes and sizes, discuss gift wrapping, make elegant funeral tributes and learn about creating vase arrangements suitable for the home, corporate clients and for parties and events. This course also included a trip to The New Covent Garden Flower Market where you will be guided through the process of purchasing wholesale flowers and sundries.
The cost of the course included all of your materials and flowers - including a set of essential floristry vases and props you will need to replicate designs at home and a manual of the course filled with notes for you to refer back to.
The continuation of this course is Foundation Bridal, which can be taken at a separate date. Upon completion of both courses, you will be presented a full Career Course certificate.
Our courses run Monday through to Friday, starting at 10am and concluding around 4pm each day - with the exception of one early start when we visit the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Light refreshments will be plentifully provided throughout the session, alongside teas and coffee.
We are excited to announce our next open evening at the flower school which will be on Wednesday the 15th of August 2018, to book your free place please click here!
