Floristry Fundamentals (FF) – (formerly EED)


Floristry Foundations (FF)  introduces the new student to a range of basic, essential foundation floristry skills.

The trainer has many years industry experience and will guide you through this exciting journey.

Elementary European Design runs for 6 weeks.

The focus is on symmetry and equips students with a broad range of basic floristry skills. During EED, students explore symmetry with a range of designs constructed in a base medium (floral foam) and also includes wiring skills and bouquet and posies.

Students are issued with a Student Card which entitles them to wholesale access at flower and sundry suppliers.

We also provide tool kits which contain all the tools and sundries that you will need for the first modules.

If you already have a range of tools and sundries, we recommend that you consider the purchase of an exclusive, premium quality Flowers Design School Swiss army knife, Wiltnot flower preservative Concentrate, Cutters, a wire bag which contains 18 gauge through to 26 gauge wires etc.

Next 6 week evening course will commence in February 2016.
