Angela Ferguson - School of Floristry

I completed the Beginners course in September 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have always loved colour and flowers. This two week course proved to be the perfect way to dive in and become quite proficient at creating a range of lovely bouquets and arrangements in a very short space of time.

With 15 years in marketing and event management, I was looking to exercise my creative streak and explore the idea of floristry as an alternative career path for the future. This course was an excellent way to achieve both goals, and was a highly enjoyable and rewarding at the same time. A great balance of theory and practice was provided.

Angela is an extremely encouraging and positive tutor who is very passionate about her craft. She readily shares her vast knowledge of floristry: both the art and the industry, which was invaluable.

Angela reinforced the theory really well in her demonstrations and during our practical exercises, so I came away more aware of my strengths and also my weaknesses and how to address them.

There were three students doing the course at the time and we had similar goals, so Angela tailored the content so that we could get maximum value from it.

I also met some lovely people in my fellow students and Angela’s great team, and was really inspired by them all.
