Would you like to learn how to make a hand-tied bouquet? Well, why not sign up for a floristry evening class?
Some courses start next month with the new autumn school term. There’s a wide range available including ‘Flower Arranging for Beginners’, ‘Wedding Flowers’ and City & Guilds certificates.
Alternatively, type in ‘adult education’ or ‘evening classes’ with ‘floristry’ or ‘flower arranging’ plus the area you live in into Google.
Things to consider…
Would it be more convenient to attend classes near where you work or near your home?
How many lessons would you like to commit to? For example, a weekend, ten weeks or an academic year?
How much are you prepared to spend? Do you need to pay for the flowers which you use on the course or are they included in the course fee?
What would you like to get out of the course? Would you simply like to learn how to make a hand-tied bouquet from flowers that you buy or grow in your garden? Or would you like to study to become a florist?
Personally, my passion for all things floral was reawakened when I signed up for a floristry evening class, near where I worked in London, in 2004.
I had so much fun choosing my flowers at lunchtimes in local florist shops and market stalls each week. And enjoyed seeing the finished arrangements brightening up our home.
So, why not consider signing up for a floristry evening class and explore being creative with flowers this autumn?
