Yes, we will have another master class this fall! 

This course aims to provide our students with a wider knowledge on a diverse range of modern floristry and techniques. The course will take place in the beautiful seaside town of  Weston-super-Mare.  Each year we try and give you new conceptions on design.  Our tutor Geoffrey Hughes will  introduce very  new approaches of bringing flowers together utilizing containers and accessories in a way not seen in everyday designs.  The creative designing aspect of the course enables students to develop their own thinking and unique ideas.  This is the vision of our Master designers and teachers.

Our visiting designer and renowned U.K. Judge Lynda Owen will once again excite students with up to date floral fashion as only seen by her in the world of international competition.  We also have the opportunity to engage a former world champion for a master class within this course. This will be depending on numbers of students and the name will be released when the number has been achieved.   This is both exciting and a floristry opportunity.

Tutors will give a demonstration during the morning and after lunch hands on yourselves.  Please be informed that there will be some change of contents when we have designers.
