Turning a posy of flowers into a neat bouquet is a life skill worth having. This short course will provide you with the key skills you need to enjoy making your own hand tied bouquet.

In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2 ½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.

This course will help you to identify how many flowers to use in a hand-tied bouquet and how to make hand-tied flowers in water. You will be able to make a spiral hand-tied bouquet, discover the best ways to secure your bouquet and what to tie the flowers with.

You will learn how to prepare your flowers and foliage whether from your garden, the local florist or supermarket. You can experiment with different colour combinations and discover what colours complement each other. You will also be able to consider what foliage works well to produce a great bouquet.

All flowers and foliage are provided in your fee. Please bring with you an apron, notepad and pen, secateurs or scissors (other equipment will be provided).

Please bring along a drink and packed lunch.
Tea/Coffee are available to make, with a small charge.
To reduce the use of single-use plastic water bottles/cups, there is a watercooler on site making it easy to refill your water bottle.
Free Parking.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2021 prior to starting the course.
The materials fee of £45 will cover the cost of flowers and equipment you will need for the day - apart from the items listed under course content.

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can find more information on our Fees and Bursaries page - search "Fees and Bursaries" at the top of the page.
