The Flower School London
The Judith Blacklock Flower School London, located down an idyllic mews in Knightsbridge, is widely acclaimed as one of the UK’s most renowned institutes for giving excellent flower arranging courses. Judith takes pride in giving every student a personal learning experience in a warm and happy environment. She wants every student to develop their own potential, including those who believe they are not creative. Creativity comes from confidence, gained from understanding techniques and methods which never let you down. Judith believes everyone can succeed with flowers either as a pastime or as a profession. The ethos of this accredited flower school in London is that those who really want to learn will, and become as passionate about flowers as she is.

Teaching at the Flower School
The teaching on the floristry courses takes place in a light, open and airy ground-floor space in central London. Judith keeps to a limit of 12 students in every class to ensure an intimate, warm and caring atmosphere with as much one on one time as possible. Judith teaches on most courses and is supported by an exceptional team of experienced, qualified instructors who currently work in the flower industry. They also delight in passing on their experience, expertise and passion.
The floristry courses are taught in English. However assistance and documentation can be made available in Chinese, Japanese and Korean. Certificate diplomas are given on courses of three days or longer.
If you are not sure which course is most suitable for you, please feel free to call Scarlett at the school anytime to discuss various options. All classes are suitable for beginners with no previous experience. Those with more experience still gain a great deal.
