The Flower School was founded in 1949 as a floristry
education institution by Rona and Stanley Coleman. They trained boys and
girls in the art of floristry during the post-war Britain, where the
Britain came from in the name. The school was taken over by Barbara
Shakespeare and Geoffrey Hughes in 1992, who then incorporated Chihiro
Hidaka of Tokyo. The school has been contributing to the industry
for over 65 years and is now the oldest floristry training school in the
U.K. With our enthusiasm it is still successful and vibrant in the 21st
century as it has been in the past.
Our main studio is in Weston-super-Mare with the Principal, Barbara Shakespeare. Geoffrey Hughes runs inspirational floral design courses from November till end of March in Bangkok and Pattaya. Our studio in Tokyo runs with Chihiro Hidaka throughout the year by arrangement. Demonstrations and classes can be provided in London as well as outside England to support students who wish to gain modern floristry techniques.
In today's floristry industry there has developed a demand for corporate weddings, this in turn has created a further dedicated industry for florists. We are offering training in the structure and delivery for event planning for this high demanding field of floristry.
All Floristry training given is to the highest standard and complies to the requirements that would be needed to work as professional florists .
FDB facilitates and encompasses all aspects of the floral industry.
To develop individual skills of each student and companies they
represent, to the highest possible standard of floristry.
The flower school aims to send our students away with a complete sense of fulfillment in their own ability.
