This 30-week course provides an excellent entry and progression into the floral design and provision industries. If you are a creative person with a keen interest in floristry and flower arrangement this is the course for you. Regardless of whether you are a hobbyist, wishing to start a career in floristry or wanting to study whilst already in employment within a floristry business you should enjoy learning the different styles and working with the range of materials covered in this course. The course will be run over 30 mornings based at the Witney Campus. You will need to supply your own floristry equipment for the course and will need to bring fresh flowers/sundries to each lesson.
