Floral Design (12 month access)

Module 1- Floral Design

Lesson 1: Let’s start at the very beginning

This lesson will introduce you to speaking the floral practitioner’s language, defining terminology you may hear when working as a floral designer. The basic lingo is your first step in becoming a floral designer.

Lesson 2: What’s in your toolbelt?

An artist is not complete without his tools. In this lesson, we identify the necessary tools and equipment needed in floral design practice, and then some not so necessary, but great to have.

Lesson 3: Votives, vases, and vessels

A floral arrangement is not complete without a beautiful container to present them in. In this lesson, we will look at the different containers that are available for presentation, from the different kinds of vases to votives, and vessels, including the materials these containers can be constructed from.

Lesson 4: The Artist, the Scientist, and the Businessman

As a floral designer, your task is not just to design a beautiful arrangement as an artist, but to also place your lab coat on, and become a scientist to understand the chemistry of the flowers, and a businessman to run a day to day operation, from the flower market to the customer.

Lesson 5: Going to the market

In this lesson, we pack our bags, and we travel to the flower market. No floral designer can be successful without those early trips to the markets to select the freshest possible flowers. We discuss floral market etiquette, and what you can expect when shopping for the freshest flowers.

Lesson 6: I wish I had an App for that

I’m sure we have all been in a situation where we have stumbled across a beautiful plant or flower, but we have never seen it, and have no idea what it is. In this lesson, we discuss how to search for flowers on the various search engines, or the best apps to include on your smart devices as a floral designer.

Lesson 7: What happened to the roses?

There is nothing more devastating than opening a box filled with roses; that have been specially shipped to you, and discovering that something must have happened to them during the journey. In this lesson, we discuss the various parasites and bugs that could affect your flowers, and what we can do to prevent these.

Lesson 8: Where it all came from

In this lesson, we travel through time and discover the development of floristry through time and style 

Module 2- Floral Design

Lesson 1: All over the World

Lesson 2: From Valentine’s Day to Christmas day

In this lesson, we will look at how the different holidays and occasions throughout the year will influence your choices of colour and product in floral design 

Lesson 3: Location, location, location

The identity as florist you portray will be determined by the flowers you sell and the styles you employ; this will ultimately determine your market and location 

Lesson 4: Sustainable floristry

In this lesson, we will take a look at eco friendly alternatives for embellishments. We discover the return of preserved flowers to fashion and how the market is adapting. 

Lesson 5: Always the Nanny

We use this lesson as a reminder of floral care , how the industry influences flowers and how a florist should plan for it. 

Lesson 6: Knowing your Greens

In this lesson, we go green- we look at the treatment , storage and greenery arrangements. We incorporate the elements of design and the rise of value in foliage, satisfying the need for the organic and greens to be incorporated more into daily design 

Lesson 7: Fillers and Finishers

In this lesson we consider the importance of fillers and their use in design. Discover the use fillers as the main focus of a floral arrangement.

This lesson takes a look at design elements that work and how those can be reinvented to create new looks
