We have been making amazing improvements to our existing facilities over the summer, including refurbishing our floristry workshop at Kirkley Hall!
Our courses include both practical and industry training, covering unites such as Art and Design for florists which looks at colour and other design elements, identification, care and monitoring of fresh materials, hand tied bouquets and floral arrangements. Our budding florists create seasonal designs for Christmas, Valentine, Mother’s day and Easter as they take their first steps into a blossoming career.
