Brief Description:

Fancy going big with your flower arrangement? Have fun creating a larger scale floral design with impact on this morning session. All materials included but you will need to bring a bucket or pedestal stand if you have one. This is a suitable design for a party, event, wedding or church florals.

Previous Experience and Knowledge Needed?

No knowledge required, just a love of flowers. Please notify the college of any plant allergies before the course.

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:

  • Apply techniques to create a larger scale floral arrangement including best sustainable practice.
  • Know how to care from your completed floral work to maximise its life.
  • Learn how to safely and securely transport and care for your design.

Extra costs on the course for example text book, materials or equipment:

There is an allowance included in the fee for all plant material and sundries used.

You will need to bring:

Strong scissors, wire cutters if you have them, (the college has a small number for your use) bucket or pedestal stand, bin bag, notebook and pen if you want to record any information for yourself, camera (optional) and apron.  You may wish to bring protective disposable gloves for your hands or hand wipes as the plant material can get messy!
