A little bit about us
The Academy was founded in Devon in 2008 by friends and fellow Master Florists, Julie Collins and Tina Parkes. Together they have developed an exceptional programme of flexible modular floristry and flower arranging courses for every stage of a flower-lover’s journey, from hobbyist, absolute beginner, career changer or experienced florist.
Wave goodbye to coursework and homework as all Academy courses are taught in the European style – hands-on, practical, jam-packed, full of techniques, and inspiration.
