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.  This year is no different, great ideas from the Flower Design team!  The summer school for 2015 will be introducing 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.  Just not to be missed!

Tutors will give a demonstration during the morning and after lunch hands on yourselves. Our teaching pattern is very intensive.  We send all the students away with the satisfaction of being able to work and deliver designs for themselves in every course. 

We bring forward our Autumn school to the Summer.  Some of our students those from abroad would like to go to the fabulous Hampton Court Flower Show at the end of the summer school. You will be able to book the flower show in advance, plus please remember you are near London and accommodation needs to be dealt with early.
