If you are looking for an opening into the world of Flower Design then this is the short course for you. It is suitable for complete beginners. The focus is on creativity and understanding the practical mechanics that you need to create truly inspiring dynamic work with flowers. Time and time again, the Three Day Taster is voted our most popular course.

At the end of the three days you will have the confidence to design flowers for the home, a special event or just to be enjoyed.

Over the three days you will cover:

  • How to buy and take care of your flowers, this will include a visit to the flower market.
  • The basic principles involved for hand tied arrangements and contemporary and traditional techniques.
  • The importance and understanding of colour and texture – you will experiment with the whole colour spectrum. As well as texture, pattern, balance and shape. A strong grasp of colour enhances all elements of design and will help you create stunning flower designs for your home, entertaining and personal pleasure.
  • Flower designs for large venues such as churches and marquees, as well as flowers for a special event.

At the end of a very creative and ‘hands on’ three days you will have a new found confidence to take you further in to the world of Flower Design. 

PART TWO is a course specifically designed for students who enjoyed the pace of Part One, but are keen to move on to the next level. Click here to learn more, Three Day Taster Part 2 >
