AboutAccreditationLondon CoursesOnline CoursesCalendarShopContactBlog
The Judith Blacklock Flower School can be found in a delightful flower-filled mews in the heart of Knightsbridge. Established for nearly 20 years, it is widely acclaimed as the UK's most renowned Floristry Institute. Judith has earned international acclaim for her unique ability to convey and share her knowledge to both the amateur and the professional floral designer. 

At the school, we teach in a logical and straightforward way, whilst providing a bespoke learning experience for each of our students. We start with the classics and quickly progress to cutting-edge trends in floral design. 

Our timetables suit all schedules and learning levels. Online courses are also available. Private tuition and group bookings are available upon request. Classes are limited to 13 students, in order to maximise the learning experience. Once confident with the techniques, we encourage our students to develop their own individual style. We believe that everybody can succeed and our students are testimony to this. 

The School retains an exceptional team of tutors who have their own particular expertise - both professional florists and experienced qualified instructors. We focus on understanding the aims and objectives of each student and tailor their learning experience around this. Course materials and presentations are also available in Chinese, Japanese and Korean, for courses lasting three days or more.
