Who are we?

Floral Training was founded by Tangerine Snyman – she is a passionate Floral Designer & Educator on a mission to improve and add value to our South African Floral Design Industry through education and setting industry standards.

Tangerine started teaching floral design to the public in 2016 and is absolutely dedicated to her students and their growth.

Teaching Real Skills to Real People” is her slogan and in a nutshell explains the type of training offered: Training that is customised, always improving, on trend and relevant to the South African wedding floral design market.

She is the daughter of a retired Dutch Floral Designer where she learnt about cut-flowers for floral design purposes and the essential design skills .

Tangerine as a no-nonsense design approach. If there is a better and more effective design/mechanic/way of doing it, she will find it, test it, and teach it to others!
