FREE ONLINE Floristry Taster Course from Chirpee's Floristry School

Welcome to a great opportunity and its completely FREE from Chirpee's Floristry School.

If you love flowers, plants, textures, if you are the person that notices a sunset or are drawn to nature - you will love this course.

If you are looking for a creative hobby, or even a new career this could be the first step to a different way of life. 

Floristry is a huge subject, studied to Foundation Degree level. It takes a lifetime to become a Master florist but the first steps are easily learnt and can be enjoyed straight away. Like every subject, the more you learn the more you realise there is a lot to learn!

In this short course you will gain a taste of floristry and some of the theory behind this creative subject. Of course floristry is a hands-on practical discipline but it is necessary to study the theoretical side so you can thoroughly understand how to create great design. 

 Modules include: Care and conditioning of flowers, A taste of Colour, A little bit of Floral History, Flower Names and How to create Buttonholes for Weddings.

We run Practical workshops throughout the year, open to all and can also provide one to one tuition if you are local to us in the UK. If you need additional tuition if you are studying full time, let us know. Our tutor is a qualified teacher, has taught at local FE Colleges and is qualified as a florist to Level 5, the highest a florist can achieve.


Tutor support is free with this course on email  

Please bear in mind that there is often a time delay as the course is global.

We are also in the process of creating some wonderful weekend workshops which will be available later this year.


If you love the Free taster please scroll down for details of the progression course which is only 38 USD (around £25) and supports a Level 2 traditional course.
