Career Kickoff
Workshop

An Introduction to Floristry
Saturday 27th August
11am-5pm

$650 per person

Are you interested in becoming a Florist?

We don’t blame you, it can be such a brilliant, rewarding career choice. Maybe you're not sure exactly what it involves? We can help with that. 

We’ll be honest, it's not a perfect career for everyone and just like any other job it does have its ups and downs.

If you’d like to learn more about it we are running  a 6 hour Introduction to Floristry workshop which reveals the inner workings of the industry to help you decide if it could be the right career choice for you - before you commit to a long, expensive training course.

We’ll discuss the pros and cons, give a comprehensive overview of working life, outline what you will need to learn, how to begin, training options and more. You’ll get your hands dirty in the nicest way by making flower arrangements in two different styles with stunning materials under the helpful, positive guidance of our tutor, Emma.

We are confident that by the end of the day you will have a clear idea of whether you'd like to train as a florist along with your two gorgeous arrangements (to retail value of $150 each) that you get to take home to enjoy.
