About this course

This practical course will introduce you to the art of arranging flowers for Christmas, using Scandinavian styles as inspiration. It’s a great starting point if you’re a beginner – or are looking to gain some flower arranging confidence, and develop your skills.

You’ll need to bring your own scissors or secateurs, flowers, greenery and mechanics (that’s flower foam, containers and so on).

By the end of this course you’ll be able to:

- create a variety of flower arrangements in different styles using fresh flowers and foliage
- confidently apply floristry techniques to an appropriate level
- understand the care and conditioning needs of a variety of plant materials
- show a knowledge and understanding of seasonal plant materials
- demonstrate an awareness of flower arranging basic design

There is no homework requirement for the course, but you will need to provide your own flowers for class each week.

Students should budget £10-15 per session for flowers. Buying flowers from the supermarket and supplementing these with greenery from your garden is a cost effective way of providing the necessary course materials.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. Students will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress. It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity. Students will need to participate fully to get the most out of the course. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
