This course is perfect for Beginners.

Overview

This two day introductory wedding floral design course has been compiled with the beginner in mind (no previous experience needed).

Event/Wedding floristry comes with it’s own set of rules depending on the type of event, venue size and layout, flowers available, colour scheme, look and feel the client is after, size and shape of tables, etc.

You will gain a greater understanding of the industry, flowers, tools and floral design mechanics, design methodologies, how to keep your flowers fresher longer, how to purchase your flowers, recommended industry suppliers, etc, etc, etc.

Besides the thorough theory we will be covering, you will also get to work with some premium flowers and get practical hands-on experience creating a centerpiece flower arrangement, table styling tips, bridal bouquet, modern grooms buttonhole, shoulder corsage and wrist corsage.
