Where To Learn Floral Design

If you never had the opprtunity to learn from a family member or during your school years don't despair there are many options available to you.

The first thing you need to do is decide what is your best learning method.

  • Some people learn better on their own
  • Others perform best in a group environment
  • The occasional student is shy and prefers a one-on-one environment
  • Can you learn through reading?
  • Or do you prefer to see something being done live or on a video?

All these issues will determine whether you should attend formal classes with a group or learn in your own from home through books, with a friend or relative who can teach you, videos or an online course.

Of course you may live somewhere more isolated and there are no physical classes close by - if that is the case you will have limited choices.

You also need to decide if you want to work towards a formal qualification, such as those needed for Florist Certification, or are happy with having the skills without the recognition.

If you are looking to work permanently in the floral industry you will always be asked to arrange flowers at some point in your interviews and formal qualifications are not always neccessary although they certainly enhance your chances.
