Finding the right container for a bunch of flowers or a large bouquet can be a predicament, after all one should complement the other. During the course you will gain an understanding of the difference between flowers for the home and the type of arrangements that are in demand for contract work in hotels and restaurants
Both flowers and vases come in many different shapes and sizes, so getting the right balance can be complex.
On this course, you will begin by learning about selection, the basics of flower care and conditioning before you start your designs.
The course will focus on creating arrangements for the home. We will look at colour, form, style, suitability of your choice of flowers, foliage and containers. You will use your new taught skills to create a dynamic and interesting finished piece to take home. Our teaching staff will demonstrate and talk you through a wide variety of vases and give you some ideas for creating different looks. We will also look at the commercial importance of contract vase work and how to make your flowers last.
