September is the month for putting your dreams into action, as all across the country people sign up to learn something new and here at the Academy of Floral Art we have a wide range of courses on offer waiting for you.
Why the Academy of Floral Art? I hear you ask, because we are committed to providing our students with a fun, friendly and fascinating environment where you can discover the industry as a whole, learn new floral skills and meet the key players to help you grow as a designer and develop a strong and exciting flower business, as a freelancer, retailer or flower farmer florist or even in a recreational capacity, because being with flowers feels good.
Our students come from many different backgrounds, bringing with them expertise in other fields. Whatever your level of knowledge and skill, we welcome all and strive to fulfil each students need to progress.
Our courses are designed to help you reach your targets quickly so that you can trade as a florist when you feel confident to do so, with good information taken from years of experience and study.
Our teaching team have worked in the industry for over 60 years between us and have seen and worked in many different environments and have collectively accumulated top qualifications continuing to stretch our knowledge through continued study, in both the City and Guilds examiners training and UK Guild of Judges courses whilst also taking part in National competitions.
We are thrilled to have become an Education Partner with the AIFD (American Institute of Floral Design), and in January 2016 we will be taking our students through the syllabus for the AIFD American Masters course with the exam in California in June 2016, (and taking students with us!), and we will continue to search for these exciting adventures in floristry for our students to help them gain recognition in their own right.
We are immensely proud of our students, many of whom have very successful businesses, winning gold medals at RHS shows and other influential competitions, and creating stunning flowers for their clients in all of the different styles and genres.
