Introductory Workshops and Career Courses

Developed by the tutors at The Floristry School, the 10-week Introduction to Professional Floristry course offers a perfect taster of the industry and provides the proper underpinning to start a career in floristry. The course, split between floristry theory and design, will help you to understand the needs of the botanical materials you are using each week and will teach students to become more confident using a range of design techniques and mediums as you develop your creative skills.

The Business of Floristry is a two-week intensive course that will give you a good understanding of the theoretical side of the industry and also arm you with a range of practical designs which can be developed upon in future design courses to enhance your customer offer.

Introduction to Professional Floristry – Part 1 begins on 29th September. When students have completed the course, they can apply to study on Part 2. Courses for late 2022 to 2023 will be available soon, for more information and pricing, or email
