Introduction to Floral Design
This comprehensive course will introduce beginning students to the exciting field of floral design. Principles and elements of design, proper mechanics of construction, care and handling of fresh materials and use of color are the focal points. For
those desiring to become a Certified Florist, this class is a great first step.
Time will be divided between lecture and hands-on design. All materials are included in the course fee and students will have a completed design to take home each day. Topics include: vase arrangements, symmetrical triangles, asymmetrical triangles, and horizontal centerpieces, round designs, hand-tied bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.
The limited course enrollment of 6 will ensure that each student receives personal attention.
The class will meet from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm each day with a 45-minute break for lunch on your own. There are 36 hours of classroom instruction time. Since this is a personal enrichment course there will be no exams.
You must bring your own tools (pruner, scissor, and wire cutter). A floral knife will be provided.
