Course description: Floristry Courses - One Day Specialist Handtied designs using Roses Course - Hand tieds for beginners.
The rose is the most romantic flower and arranged on its own displays a richness and beauty which cannot be surpassed by any other flower. A red rose signifies love, a white rose purity so it is not surprising that the rose is the most popular purchased flower in the UK. This course will teach you how to arrange Roses with complementary foliage to be placed in a glass vase, a contemporary foliage structured hand tied with roses and a wire structure which enhances a lily vase arranged with roses. These designs can be used for Valentines or Mothers day, as birthday gifts or designs suitable for room décor.
This course is for flower arrangers or would be florists who wish to learn the art of making different hand tieds with roses.
This fun, hands on course will cover: the correct techniques for conditioning, preparation, assembly and finish of each listed hand tied, together with design, costing and delivery considerations.

Workshop #1 With the Lonely Bouquet campaign approaching in May (Friday 5th May) - why not come along to this workshop at NAFAS HQ on Thursday 6th April 2017 and learn how to make 3 different contemporary, cost effective hand tieds/ structures so that you can either make yourself or perhaps teach your Flower Club colleagues. These handtied designs are also ideal gifts for friends and family; using a total of 20 roses during this workshop.
Refreshing changes to the way you can learn.
A typical week for Gill includes floral art demonstrations (often booked 2 to 3 years in advance) and flower arranging workshops around the country. Gill also provides existing students with 'One-to-One' lessons where they study either flower arranging or floristry.
For new students and workshops Gill maintains a flexibility in her busy schedule so that she can take on new teaching and demonstrating commitments. As a new student all you have to do is contact Gill to discuss what you wish to learn and with some dates that are suitable to you and in discussion arrive mutually agreeable dates. Gill can also walk you through the option on cost of tuition and materials that would be required.
Gill offers the flexibility of 'One-to-One' lessons so that students can learn what they need to learn to achieve their individual goals without making the time commitment expected of them if they were otherwise to attend traditional college courses. Gill lessons are all about concentrated practical learning Student goals can, for example, be to achieve a higher practical grade in their floristry exams or to improve their creative skills when they design their next floral design.
Workshops provided by Gill can be held at your local venue or run for your group of friends and often by businesses who wish to help their staff develop new skills; banqueting and hotel staff come to mind. There are just so many people that do not have the time to attend the traditional longer term college courses yet really love making floral designs and want to do something new, refreshingly different and one day workshops are a very good solution.
You choose when; from available dates. The college's website depicts many different courses, that have been run previously, as a source of the variety of subjects that you can learn. Armed with an understanding that you can organise your next lesson as either a One-to-One, or as a Workshop, your next best step is to call Gill to discuss what you have done so far, what you would like to do next, where and when it could be taught. Gill in return can clarify any questions that you have, offer available suitable dates and advise the likely cost of materials and cost of tuition.
