As we approach Christmas day and the New Year celebrations we reflect upon the extraordinary year that the Academy has had and the many successes individuals have achieved and we take this opportunity to thank you for joining us on our floral journey this year.

We love spending time together and to celebrate the year we decided that at our Christmas lunch we would spend the day creating beautiful Christmas designs and thought it would be great to film it as our Christmas card to our family, floral friends and students. We hope you enjoy the spirit of Christmas in this beautiful film made by the very talented duo Baxter and Ted.

This is just a small collection of the lovely pictures taken by Maggie McCall Photography.

At the Academy of Floral Art, it matters a great deal to us that we give each individual the full technical knowledge and understanding of design, together with best business practice, and the opportunity to discover in greater depth the skill of floristry.

We love to share the exciting floral events that take place worldwide, and take care to deliver a broader understanding of the floral industry through our style of teaching, allowing independent talent to shine through and enhance individual creativity. Studying with the Academy will give budding florists not only the tools to run successful businesses but the confidence to create designs that are original and creative, enhancing individual style.

We have lots of very exciting courses and workshops planned for 2017 and we hope you will be able to join us. In the meantime a very happy and sparkling Christmas and a wonderfully floral New Year to you all.

Tina, Julie, Amanda and Kathryn
