3 reviews for Floristry for Beginners


  1. 3 out of 5

    Material rather low quality. Becky the teacher was witty and creative but not very organised. She made sure she mentioned everything that was necessary but not at the right time (watering the oasis on time so it was soaked when we needed it is just one example).


  2. 5 out of 5

    Excellent- the tutor was a very good teacher, full of enthusiasm and encouragement.


  3. 5 out of 5

    another great course from the tutors, making a good basis for further work. As we brought our own flowers it was lovely to see how each of us interpreted the types of design, from bright and spiky to a truly romantic, vintage vibe
