The Intermediate Guide to Floristry: The Five Week Evening Course: Wednesday 9th January - Wednesday 6th February : 7.00pm-9.30pm


Our intermediate career course has been designed to lead on from our beginners course or for those who have had previous experience in the floristry industry.

Our course introduces innovative designs and there is a strong focus on style development. We draw on fashion, trends, nature, artists to inspire our work and push boundaries to create show stopping installations and floral arrangements. 

There is a strong focus on colour calibrations and textures. You will work with the very best of flowers, locally grown and from Holland.

As well as individual practical work, we will work as a group to create large installations. There will be lots of photograph opportunities! 

As with the beginners course, there is a strong focus on theory work, as well as practical. During the intermediate course we look at running your business. We look at building your own website, social media, managing staff, looking for premises, budgeting and marketing. 

Everyone is supplied with a Flourish Sussex Flower School notebook and pen on arrival.
