Our new career courses are held in the surroundings of our quaint flower shop in WestEnd Old Cottessey, Norwich. It’s for absolute beginners looking to start a new venture into the world of floristry.

The course will include: Seasonal flower availability, buying flowers, costing your designs, funeral work, hand-tied bouquets, eco-friendly techniques, and an intro into wedding floristry.

This is a week-long course with no studying in the library or writing pages of essays. It’s a full hands-on experience where you will create beautiful designs to take home.
