Beginner’s Guide to Floral Design


Monday 5th August - Wednesday 7th August

Join lecturer in floristry, Arete Richards, for this 3-session workshop – a wonderful opportunity to indulge your inner florist by learning the art of floral design.

Taking inspiration from nature – colour, texture, form and fragrance will all play a role in creating memorable designs that you will take home.

Over the three sessions you will learn the fundamentals of how to choose, condition and care for your flowers. The designs you create will be assembled using traditional floristry techniques, yet inspired by contemporary styles with a natural and seasonal finish.

We will also look at current trends and discuss factors influencing the floristry industry.

Day 1: Conditioning techniques, care and storage of fresh flower materials – creating a seasonal hand-held posy and a traditional button-hole.

Day 2: Tied sheaf design and floral headdress

Day 3: Foam free urn arrangement

Cost: £190 includes tuition, all fresh flowers, materials, plus coffee and cake each day

Dates:  5, 6 and 7 August 2019 – 10am to 12.30pm
