In this course you will gain an introduction to the concept of design, learn some practical applications of flowers and plants, learn about size symmetry and the world of colour, learn how to hand-tie bouquets and how to wire and tape flowers and foliage.
Seasonal flowers will be used. This course is designed as an introductory course for those with an interest in flowers, home decorating, or perhaps considering training for a career in the floristry industry. All materials supplied. Course fee includes $40 materials.
