With so much going on in the world at the moment we feel an ever growing desire to touch base with our lovely floral community and we’re so excited to finally emerge out of the chaos of the last few years. To improve our courses and make our Academy better than ever before we have adapted and reset with a new innovative business plan.
Here’s what we have planned for the future of our Academy:
– A new series of fun, themed workshops for everyone to enjoy throughout the year
– Making even more sustainable choices and moving towards becoming a foam free floral business
– Reassigning our tutors to different courses and keeping up with new trends
We’re filled with positivity and excitement for the year ahead and we can’t wait to reunite with all you flower lovers over the next few terms! Due to popular demand we have decided to release a new series of fun, creative and themed workshops which are suitable for all abilities and will run throughout the whole year. These have only been released for a few weeks and they’re already proving to be very popular with two of them already completely full! – See below all of the new workshops we have coming up…
