Day 1 - Conditioning and Hand-Tied Bouquets
Learn all about where our flowers come from, their common and botanical names, how to handle and care for all different kinds of flowers, how to prepare the stems ready for arrangements and how to store them to get the longest vase life possible.

Next, we will teach you the most fundamental skill of any florist – the hand-tied bouquet. A hand-tied bouquet is the classic way to arrange and present flowers for gifts, allowing the receiver to simply pop the bouquet in a vase, already beautifully arranged. We will focus on the spiralling technique, showing students how this industry approved technique can be used to achieve many different bouquet styles.

In addition, we will teach you premium wrapping techniques to enable you to present your flowers in the most professional and commercial manner.


Day 2 - Vases and Table Centres
Arranging flowers straight into a vase is an art that requires good technical know- how. Our skilled teachers will advise you on selecting the right vase for an arrangement, the different mechanics available to support and arrange stems and how to transport and care for arrangements. After teacher demonstration, students will be guided to make their own vase arrangements using a beautiful selection of seasonal flowers and foliage.

Leading on from vase arrangements, we will cover table centres, showing students all different types of popular centrepieces and all the endless possibilities. Following on from teacher demonstration, students will then make a high impact, elevated table centre, suitable for any event.


Day 3 - Wreaths and Garlands
A door wreath is a great way to celebrate the changing seasons. Doors can be adorned with delicate, bulb flowers in the spring, luscious roses in the summer, fiery foliage in the autumn, and of course festive berries in the winter. Our knowledgeable teachers will demonstrate the different methods that may be used to make a stunning door wreath as well as highlighting what ingredients may be most suitable and how best to source them. According to the season, students will make either a spring, summer, autumn or winter wreath, using a beautifully curated selection of ingredients, aided by the attentive guidance of our wonderful teachers.

Next on the agenda will be garlands. A garland is so versatile in its applications, allowing beautiful foliage and flowers to be displayed almost anywhere. After teacher demonstration, students will make their own cascading garland, laced with beautiful, seasonally appropriate materials.


Day 4 - Wiring - Buttonholes, Corsages and Flower Crowns
The smallest of flower arrangements require the most intricate of skills - wiring. Wiring flowers allows florists to make the most delicate, wearable designs. Students will be taught how to wire different types of flowers and foliage, in order to first create their own traditional buttonhole, and then an elegant wrist corsage.

After this, students will then progress onto flower crowns. Using a mix of detailed flowers and foliage, students will be carefully guided through the process to make a gorgeous flower crown, fit for a flower queen.


Day 5 - Statement Arrangements - Pedestals and Arches
Statement pieces can hugely enhance any event, creating a sense of 'wow' and high visual impact. On the final day of the course, we will guide you through how to grab attention and enhance a space with an impressive pedestal arrangement. Using large headed blooms and elongated stems, students will make impactful arrangements, aided by the careful guidance of our knowledgeable teachers.

Lastly, students will learn about different types of floral archways, and the different mechanics that can be used. Students will then work together to install a beautiful floral archway using a gorgeous array of flowers and foliage.
