Flower Arrangement for the Winter Season

Course Overview

You can still enjoy beautiful flowers in winter! Learn how to add your own special touch to your winter flower arrangements.

Whether it be through bouquets or another floral creation, this winter themed course will broaden your experience with flowers, colours and techniques.

Flower arrangements will be explored using seasonal winter flowers, and arranged in a variety of ways such as adding winter colours all season long using branches, berries with greenery or the small touch of dove grey, to introduce a rich texture to your designs. These floral arrangements can then be assorted using ceramic pots, vases, natives and modern textured wrapping techniques.

You will receive a step by step guide on how to care for and add your own special touch to beautiful blooms, led by a florist who will have you designing with flowers in no time.

This short course is suitable for all levels – from complete beginners to intermediate and experienced students who want to build on their current skills by experimenting with seasonal flowers.
