AboutLondon CoursesOnline CoursesCalendarShopGallery 83Step by StepContactBlog
The Judith Blacklock Flower School can be found in a charming and safe flower-filled mews in the heart of Knightsbridge. Established for 17 years, it is widely acclaimed as the UK's foremost flower school. Judith is renowned worldwide for her ability to pass over her knowledge to both the amateur and the professional flower designer. The highly regarded school is accredited by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) and the specialised courses are accredited by the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD). There are timetables to suit all schedules and levels and online courses. Private tuition and group bookings are available upon request. We take a maximum of 13 students at the school at any one time to maximise learning.

At the school, we teach in a logical and straightforward way that really does work. We start with the classics and quickly progress to cutting-edge trends. Once confident with the techniques, we encourage you to develop your own individual style based on structured guidelines. We believe that everybody can succeed and our students prove that this is so - many now run successful flower companies or simply enjoy arranging flowers for themselves more confidently. On longer courses we have an exceptional team of tutors who have their own particular expertise - they are both professional florists and experienced qualified tutors. Judith teaches on virtually every course, so that she can understand the aims and objectives of every student and help wherever she can. We also provide handouts and presentations in Chinese and Japanese on all our courses of three days or longer to help our foreign language students.

Judith is the author of 16 bestselling books and European Correspondent for the USA magazine Florists' Review. Signed copies of Judith's new book Arranging Flowers in a Vase are available from the school for £25.00 plus p&p.

In 2011, she organised Flowers@Chicheley Hall, the largest contemporary cut-flower event that has ever been staged in the UK and in 2014 Flowers@Oxford to great acclaim. She regularly appears on television and demonstrates at leading global floral events, including the Chelsea Flower Show. Judith has travelled and taught in China, Dubai, Turkey, USA, Canada, Japan and Kuwait. She was also editor of The Flower Arranger magazine from 2003 - 2016.

She has arranged flowers at many high-profile venues such as Kensington Palace and taught floral design to personalities including Kirstie Allsopp, Gordon Ramsay, Keeley Hawes, Jason Brown from boyband ‘Five', John Sergeant and James May from Top Gear. One of her favourite appearances was in Made in Chelsea. Judith has created many bouquets for members of the royal family. She has also acted as a consultant to Investec, Topshop, Tesco, BT, Channel 4 and Marks & Spencer.
