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.

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 14+ years experience, which also includes my own wedding floral design business – Pink Energy Floral Design (www.pinkenergy.co.za). If there is a better and more effective design/mechanic/way of doing it, I will find it, test it, and teach it to others!

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).

I am based in Cape Town and operate from my private Event Floral Design space. In terms of Floral Training, my business is classified as an online business and I host atleast one live online workshop per month.

You can also attend in-person training with me in a one-on-one private session or in a small group setting. I host these In-person flower arranging workshops & classes from my private space (and I do prefer keeping classes small so that everyone gets the most value from their learning experience). For bigger classes I hire a venue. Occasionally I travel to Gauteng to host a class/workshop there.

My mission is to improve the South African Floral Design Industry firstly through education, but also through setting industry standards.

Hope you will book a class with me.
