About this course

In this Wedding Flower Designs course at Maidstone you will learn how to design button holes, corsages, thank you bouquets, church flower arrangements, top table arrangements and much more. Please note, we do not design a bride’s bouquet. It is perfect for those who wish to help out at a friend’s wedding. You will not be able to decorate St Paul's Cathedral, but you will be a big help at your local church, and you never know, St Paul's Cathedral might be next! Each week you will produce a floral piece in a different style.

By the end of the course you should be able to:

- create a variety of differing styles of floral arrangements using fresh flowers and foliage
- confidently apply floristry techniques to an appropriate level
- understand the care and conditioning needs of a variety of plant material
- show a knowledge and understanding about seasonal plant material
- demonstrate an awareness of basic design and colour theory

Homework is not a requirement of the course, but you will need to source flowers for your class each week.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and craftspeople and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. Students will need to understand the potential benefit from the programme of study, read and interpret ideas, communicate responses that are clear, logical and understandable and manage your own time. You will undertake critical evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance personal skills.
Your tutor will give you individual feedback throughout the course.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will be advised each week on the flowers you need to bring.

For the first session please bring:

- a collection of flowers - we are going to make lots of buttonholes, so your choice;
- scissors
- twine
- raffia
- a small amount of lace
- note book and pen

The tutor will bring the wire and tape needed, a small charge of 35 pence will be payable for this.

What can I do next?

The tutor will be able to give you advice. Alternatively please visit our website at www.kentadulteducation.co.uk for more details.

What do I need to join the course

This course is for those who have some floristry experience. It is not suitable for beginners. Ideally you will have completed the Introduction to Floristry and the Floristry Improvers courses. It is designed for those who want to help at a friends or relations wedding. By the end of the course you will not be able to design the wedding but you will have enough confidence to help.
