The Perfect Pedestal

Suitable for church flower arrangers, but also those who want to create large designs. The classic pedestal is such a useful and versatile design to create, but it also requires skill. For lots of people, it's the most challenging of arrangements, but it really doesn't have to be. This course demystifies the process.


What you will learn:
• how to create a pedestal design on a small, medium and large budget
• the foliage that works and what to plant in your garden, or the churchyard
• where to buy the flowers and foliage, whatever your means
• how to recognise the freshness of flowers and when they are at the best price

Judith is the author of Church Flowers - possibly the ultimate guide to church flower arranging. This class is offered at less than cost price, because Judith is passionate about combining beauty with flowers and worship. This practical and instructive class will show you how to make pedestals look great whatever the budget. Judith has designed this class for people who have a passion to beautify their church. It is a rare case when the budget is unlimited!

There will be no flowers to take home, but some of the flowers will be left in St. Paul's Knightsbridge where part of the course will take place. You will, however, leave armed with masses of professional tips and a huge amount of knowledge.

Very helpful - I learnt a lot!

It certainly broadened my horizons and there was a dynamic use of colour!

I had a wonderful time on Judith's Perfect Pedestal afternoon. We tackled 3 different arrangements using an abundance of beautiful flowers. Judith is an inspiring teacher who clearly loves to pass on her considerable knowledge and enthusiasm, giving clear instructions and encouragement. She comes across as someone with real warmth, genuinely interested in everyone on the course. It was nice that although the practical session finished at 4 we were welcome to stay on for tea and discussion afterwards. Highly recommended!

Great course for learning how to create a large display, lots of tips to help keep costs down for those of us doing Church flowers but equally useful for those just wanting to create a large display whatever the occasion.
Iris Challis
Brilliant course - thank you - learnt a lot - even though I've been on other floristry courses including level 3 city and guilds I'm hoping to do another course or even courses.
