We are delighted to announce our Autumn Master Class,  under the direction of Master Florist Geoffrey Hughes assisted by Barbara Shakespeare NDSF and  Principal of  FDB, member of Association of floristry teachers,  along with Lynda Owen the World Judge as a member of the UK Floristry Judges Guild, NDSF will take classes from 25th until the 28th of September 2012.

This year, we will move out of the Capital to the flower design studio in Weston super Mare.  London is experiencing a busy and eventful period with lots of excessive cost.   As you see from the dates of 2012 we are in mid week so as students can go to the RHS Malvern flower show right after the class as well as on to the Dutch Floriade from Bristol airport.

We are putting on a programme which is once again different and adds to the experience that Flower Design of Britain always delivers year on year and why master class is the time to up your knowledge.
