About Dried Floral Arrangements:
Dried flowers are experiencing huge revival in the fields of interior design and even weddings. In this course, you will learn how to use dried flowers to make a floral arrangement to suit your home, as well as the basics of which flowers dry best and the methods of drying. We will explore concepts of floral design such as colour, shape and texture and basic floristry wiring techniques. All materials are provided and you'll take home your arrangement. No experience is necessary.
Each of our floral design courses are stand-alone modules to explore a different aspect of floristry.
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. Course fee includes materials $50.
Our mission is to provide quality affordable and accessible lifelong learning opportunities for our community.
