I completed the Online Professional Floristry Course in Spring of 2017, and could not be more pleased with the quality of the program and the overall experience. While I was initially hesitant about taking such a "hands - on" course online, I quickly found that the way the course is designed with such thorough instruction through excellent videos and written material truly allows for a comprehensive learning experience. My tutor was amazing - she offered timely feedback and was very helpful when I had questions. Because you photograph your work from many different angles, it is possible to receive great feedback. I was worried that not being physically present would make that difficult, but it truly wasn't an issue. Most importantly, my tutor offered constructive help and encouragement, and I felt that my skills greatly improved over the course of the program. While occasionally I found it difficult to secure the flowers I was hoping to use because of availability in my area, in the end I realized this was a good lesson in learning to make substitutions when necessary! Judith's videos were informative, clear and an important addition to the written material provided. I am grateful for having learned from the best - many thanks for a wonderful experience!

I dropped into the school, as I was visiting London on vacation last week & met Katharina & Tom, who were absolutely lovely to me & helpuful in every way they could be. I am doing an on-line course with the school because I live in Australia and am enjoying every minute of it. Lynne, my tutor is positive & honest & I have been helped by all of the staff, along the way. I AM VERY PROUD TO BE BEING TRAINED BY THE JUDITH BLACKLOCK FLOWER SCHOOL. Thank you to all involved.

I have recently completed Judith's online floristry career course, which has taught me all the essential skills required for a career in floristry and has given me the confidence to set up my own floristry business, Miss Mollie's Flowers. Feeling very disillusioned with my previous career as a Secretary in the NHS for many years, I made the decision to do Judith's course in the hope that I would be able to realise my dream of a career in floristry and thus Miss Mollie's Flowers was born. It has completely changed my life for the better and I am loving every minute of my new career with flowers. It has been a steep learning curve, much hard work, early mornings, long days, but so satisfying when you see the end product and the joy that your flowers give to so many people. Thank you Judith and your incredible team for providing this course and making my dream come true, I am very grateful.
