2024 is proving to be a bumper year for event florists, so now is the time to develop those skills.

Master the skills and techniques of the floristry business with our online floristry courses from the comfort of your home. This online professional & events styling business course offers a similar content to our world-renowned Professional Business of Floristry & Events Styling Course that Judith has been running to great acclaim for 25 years at her school.  It follows the same curriculum, but with modifications to make distance learning possible.

The course provides you with one-to-one learning at every stage, with your own personal tutor who guides you through the theory and practical work. This intensive training will enable you to open up your own business successfully. There is no other course like this on the market.

The Judith Blacklock Diploma is awarded upon successful completion of the course. On successful completion of the professional online course students are eligible to receive an invitation from the American Institute of Floral Designers (AIFD) to become a Certified Floral Designer.

Once you have completed our accredited Online Professional Business of Floristry & Events Styling Course Judith will be offering a 20 mins one-to-one Zoom session where you can ask her anything about working with flowers. She will also advise on getting up to two-weeks unpaid work experience and how she can help.  Just email school@judithblacklock.com

We have added two brand new videos, the first is a 70-minute on sustainability and large-scale event work to our online professional business & events styling course. The video shows three of Judith’s top teachers taking you through the mechanics and techniques of creating soaring columns, big structural hanging designs and impressive floral arches. This video is realistic and practical with no corners left unturned. There is no extra coursework attached to this video but it will get you itching for a large-scale assignment so you can have a go. The second is on mechanics, in other words how to keep your stems in place. The video gives comprehensive details of the many different options out there and will help you choose which is best for you.

For anyone joining the online course you will be sent a free copy of Judith’s latest book ‘Simply Flower Arranging’. Contact Judith on school@judithblacklock.com to express your interest and she will arrange.

  1. Kerry Vant

    I have really enjoyed the online business course and gained a wealth of knowledge in the process! Each module has been key to learning different techniques used within the industry and June (my tutor) has been absolutely amazing!

  2. Rebecca L

    I have loved the online business course. It is very well designed and I can really see my skills developing as a florist. My online tutor is incredibly supportive and provides thorough and in-depth feedback. I do not feel at a disadvantage for doing an online course as I have received personalised support every step of the way. Overall it is an incredible course with outstanding tutors and enjoyable content. I would not hesitate to recommend.

  3. Melissa Erker

    Embarking on the Judith Blacklock Online Professional Business of Floristry Course was a unique experience for me, as I already had some prior floristry training. I chose to take this course as a way to polish my skills before launching my own business in the United States. The flexibility of the self-paced learning structure on the platform was brilliant, allowing me to tailor the course to my schedule, with no rigid timetable. The instructional video in each module was clear and instructional. The inclusion of multiple design variations within each tutorial added a layer of creativity. You are assigned a teacher who always gives valuable feedback. The combination of professionalism and creativity in the course makes it a commendable choice for florists at any stage of their career, looking to start out or elevate their expertise.

  4. Brenda Bull

    I really enjoyed the online Professional Business of Floristry & Event Styling Course, which I completed about 18 months ago. The video for each session clearly demonstrated what was required, with helpful hints and tips. Being able to re-watch these again when working on my own, meant I could go over any elements again and at the notes accompanying each session helped to provide background information on a wide range of aspects of floristry and the industry, and also developed an understanding of plant materials. Being able to produce my version of the designs at my own pace meant I could re-do as many times as I wanted until I felt confident with what was involved, and the comprehensive feedback at each stage was excellent. I would really recommend the online option for those who wish to learn from home, with confidence that the standard of the course and teaching is of the highest standard.

  5. Julie Larson

    My experience completing the Judith Blacklock Online Professional Business of Floristry Course was that it truly delivers the comprehensive curriculum, professional instruction and quality mentoring promised in the course description. I enrolled in the online course to learn while working full time. The anytime-anywhere access enabled me to review the theory section or watch the complementary instruction video for a module during lunch or whilst commuting. I appreciated that each video instructor conveyed their wealth of floristry experience in an understandable presentation. My tutor also willingly shared her experience in answering my questions, including everything from sourcing and purchasing flowers to mechanics for stabilizing stems. Her feedback, whether kind encouragement or constructive criticism, was invaluable to my success in completing the Professional Floristry course.

  6. Juste – Sept 2023

    Good afternoon, I just came back form work and i cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for me. Your unwavering support has made me push on and continue when i was ready to give up. I have enjoyed this course entirely and in am beyond grateful for the knowledge gained. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

  7. Nicola Marshall – February 2023

    The online course is well thought out and comprehensive with excellent support and help from the school tutors and Judith. I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone wishing to learn floristry.

  8. Emma from Wandsworth

    I have just completed the year long professional floristry course which has been such an amazing learning curve. I cannot believe that I can actually put together and create my own designs now with absolute confidence. The course has been thorough and extremely informative. I am very grateful to Judith Blacklock and her fantastic and supportive staff for an inspirational course and an incredible new skill that brings me a lot of joy and prospectively a new career.

  9. Emma Linsley – April 2022

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the course. My tutor has been a fantastic support. From start to finish, the videos, written instructions and theory work have all been so well put together, easy to follow and are great reference materials to go back to!

  10. Tracey Parmenter – recent graduate

    The help given by my tutor completely encouraged me through my journey and I can honestly say that I have had the best time doing the course. I have learnt so much and really feel ready to continue this journey and open my own business. I cannot thank you enough for all the help and support given. I will certainly be recommending The Judith Blacklock Flower School to everyone I meet who is interested in floral design.

  11. Maria Ross

    I had looked far and wide for an online floristry course and I am so glad that I chose the Judith Blacklock Flower School. The quality of course material, both video and written, is excellent and my personal tutor was very knowledgeable, supportive and encouraging. The course was a real pleasure and I have learnt surprisingly much. It gave my skills and confidence to create more sophisticated arrangements and is a solid foundation of my professional development as a floral designer.

  12. Tracey Parmenter – current student

    I feel like I have learnt a lot already and i’m only on module 2 and i’m really loving the course. The smell and sight of fresh flowers in a room makes every day a great day!

  13. Emma Linsley

    Doing this course (which is just wonderful!) has confirmed to me that floristry is absolutely what I want to do. All I think about is floristry! So, this week I resigned from my job in order to dedicate 100% of my time to finishing my training and setting up my business. I already have people wanting to place regular orders. Looking forward to starting on buttonholes and corsages – the wedding modules are the ones I’ve been looking forward to the most! I’ve read Judiths Wedding book cover to cover, several times and the cut flower guide has become my bible!

  14. Emily Gasche – May 2021

    Judith’s online professional business of floristry course has been perfect for my busy lifestyle. As a full-time teacher and with a baby on the way, I hadn’t been able to find a qualification that suited me. I saw this one advertised and couldn’t wait to start. Having my own tutor has meant that I certainly don’t feel like I’ve missed out on the face-to-face element. She had challenged and inspired me, and I’ve learnt so much. The course has been an excellent foundation, as it covers all the essentials and more.

  15. Marie Leahy

    Claire is a wonderful tutor and I am learning so much. Thank you for all the professionalism shown and for enlightening a creative spark in me. I love flowers and I am enjoying the course so much and look forward to all the modules ahead.

  16. Natasha Gibson – N. Ireland

    I received my Judith Blacklock Online Professional Floristry Course as a christmas gift, and what a fantastic gift that was!
    What can I say about the course other than it was simply amazing. I am based in N.Ireland and I wasn’t sure how exactly it would work to begin with but soon found my way around the course.
    It is a truly professional course, with a wealth of knowledge on every aspect of the floral industry, the modules are so well laid out and its so easy to upload your photos. I learned so much from this course and loved every assignment from the theory side through to the practical side, my tutor Liz was fantastic, she always gave such detailed and constructive feedback and she had so many tips to share.
    I just loved waiting to see my results and feedback and it was so exciting to see what the next assignment video instructions by Judith would be.
    Judith has such a great way of teaching, she is so clear and knowledgeable in her instructions with so many great tips throughout her videos, they are very detailed and she always has great ideas on flowers to substitute with when they aren’t available in your area or season.

    For anyone interested in flowers whether it be for a career or even a new hobby I would highly recommend the online courses by Judith Blacklock, or even as a gift for someone who loves flowers, you will not be disappointed.

    I enjoyed every minute of the course and I am proud to say that I was taught by the best!

    And a massive thank you to Judith Blacklock & her amazing team, thank you for a wonderful experience.

  17. Amanda Belsey

    The tuition is 1st class and tutors are always on hand with helpful tips and advice. I cant recommend this course enough, a must for anyone thinking of of working with flowers.

  18. Mirona Barac

    Judith, your course is amazing. In the beginning I was really skeptical about an online flower arranging class, but now I’m a fan. I feel that I learned so much just by watching the first video and reading all the info in the module.

  19. Julie Larson

    My experience completing the Judith Blacklock Online Professional Floristry Course was that it truly delivers the comprehensive curriculum, professional instruction and quality mentoring promised in the course description. I enrolled in the online course to learn while working full time.

Her feedback, whether kind encouragement or constructive criticism, was invaluable to my success in completing the Professional Floristry course.

  20. Tracy DeMuro Raleigh

    I completed the Online Professional Floristry Course, 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!

  21. Cathy Lange

    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.

  22. Claire Wallace

    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.
