This course is perfect for anyone with a love of all things pretty who want to develop their creative skills across the areas of styling and floral design in the event industry. We attract a range of students from those who have no prior experience and want to develop their creative skills with a view to starting their own styling and floral business, all the way through to students who are already working in a creative industry such as interior design, photography or fashion who are branching out to add an alternative income stream to their existing business or are planning a change in direction in their business. It is ideal for a creative who wants to be an event styling specialist.
Floral design is a method of using fresh flowers as a key resource in your event styling. Our course introduces you to traditional and modern techniques that will allow you to design and create your own fresh floral table centrepieces, installation pieces, bridal bouquets, as well as ideas on how to use flowers in other decorative ways in an event.
