Who is Floral Training?

Floral Training with Tangerine is me, and I am Tangerine Snyman, a fun loving (and sometimes a little serious) independent Floral Educator.

I started my own Wedding & Event Floral Design business back in 2009 and started offering floral workshops in 2016.

Teaching Real Skills to Real People” is my focus and I teach content that is on trend and skills that you can immediately apply. My content is based on my experience in the wedding & event industry as well as running my own flower shop.

Born to a Dutch-Mom who was also an enthusiastic & creative Floral Designer, I was blessed to have had floral design as a part of daily life growing up (I have had the best teacher).

From an early age I was exposed to the creation and technical side of floral design mechanics that are unconventional and not baught in a shop, as the goods were simply not freely available in South Africa back then. My courses & workshops includes my own better & effective ways of doing things, as well as tried and tested floral design products that work!

I am based in Cape Town and operate from my private Event Floral Design space out in the beautiful farm lands. In terms of Floral Training, my business is classified as an online business and I host atleast one live online workshop per month. BUT, you can also attend in-person training with me in a one-on-one private session or in a small group setting.

If you are based in Gauteng, I have trained local facilitators there who can still assist with one-on-one or small group training – enquire here.

Part of my mission is to improve the South African Floral Design Industry firstly through education (better product understanding and better design skills), as well as through setting more clear & attainable industry standards, right for our economy and our people.

Hope you will book a class or a fun floral workshop with me.
