Cape Town: Beginners Event Floristry Class (14 October 2023)

14 OCTOBER 2024 | 09:00 – 16:30

My Private Space, Durbanville

Level: Beginners

This workshop is perfect for Beginners.

You don’t need to have any experience with flowers at all.


This one day introductory event floristry class has been compiled with the beginner in mind (no previous experience needed).

Event 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.

We will spend the morning on theory where you will gain a greater understanding of the industry, flowers, tools and floral design mechanics – after lunch we will delve into a practical session where each attendee will make a centrepiece flower arrangement guided by Tangerine.

What is included and what content will be covered:

  • Industry overview: Suppliers, wholesalers, flower farms, etc
  • What are the main flower types you should be working with and how to compile flower recipes and do stem-count for events
  • How to combine colours in floral design
  • How to use floristry products correctly to keep your flowers fresher for longer
  • Tools & equipment that are essential and how to use these correctly
  • The types of events that you can start doing immediately with the skills you learn on this day
  • A peek into sustainable floristry and how you can apply it in your flower arranging
  • Centrepiece design rules, guidelines & principles
  • You will also make your own centrepiece flower arrangement (yours to take home afterwards).
  • All flowers, supplies will be provided to complete the practical
  • You get a printed starter training manual
  • You may use our tools & equipment for the duration of the class (please return afterwards)
