This course is ideal for anyone who has already completed a diploma course at the school, as well as those with experience who wish to improve their skills and create a fully-wired wedding bouquet.

Practical work

Students will learn to create stylish designs for events as well as larger and more technical pieces. By the end of the course, students will be able to create a magnificent fully-wired shower bouquet – the ultimate in floristry. The designs cover both classic and contemporary styles to give a thorough grounding in all aspects of floral design relevant to today’s marketplace.

Business skills

The information about business skills is geared specifically to the floristry industry and is taught by experts from different areas within the floral world. 

Our students

About half our students are from the UK and the others from countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, the Americas and the rest of the world. The mix of nationalities is wide, but everyone is linked by a desire to add floristry to their skills. The lifelong friendships that are made at the school are a perfect way to exchange information and trends across the world.

Our teaching

The teaching is led by Judith, but we bring in additional teachers to cover different aspects of the industry. Each teacher has a particular expertise and all are qualified in both teaching and floristry. As each tutor is currently working in the industry, they all have up-to-date knowledge of trends and present practices which they are happy to share. This means that whatever direction you want to take you will always be given expert advice.
