4 Week Floristry Course: The Final Projects
It’s been a lovely few weeks with our floristry school students and as their last week approached, it was time for them to complete their final project and display all the skills they’d learned whilst they’ve been with us.
The students began the week by deciding on a brief for who the five floral arrangements they were creating could be for. The possibilities were endless and really enabled the students to challenge themselves, giving them the opportunity to see what it is like working towards the brief of a client.
Next, the students had to decide exactly which flowers they wanted to use within their arrangements, taking into account the qualities of each flower, where they are best used and the longevity of the flowers too.
When the flowers arrived, the students then spent Thursday and Friday working on bringing their ideas to life. The flower school was awash with beautiful flowers and it was lovely to see the array of different flowers the students had decided upon.
After a very busy two days arranging, the students revealed their final floral displays and were rewarded with a very well earned glass of bubbly! All of the final arrangements were beautiful and everyone was thoroughly impressed by the work the students had created. So here’s a little look at the students final projects…
Séana worked on creating a beautiful window display for the clothing and homeware shop Anthropologie, with her arrangements including a handbag made out of flowers and even wearable floral jewellery.
Alex made a lovely variety of arrangements for the launch of a perfume, including a perfume bottle created out of flowers along with a beautiful floral arrangement in a golden urn and floral headdress.
Sook worked on creating various arrangements for a window display for the clothing company Charlotte Simone, known for their fluffy pom-poms and scarves. She made a wonderful scarf out of flowers and created a striking effect by spray painting lettered oasis covered in flowers.
Anna used the Mexican Day of the Dead festival as the inspiration for her final project and used the festivals wonderful vibrant colours in her final designs. Her arrangements included a lovely cascading candelabra arrangement along with a fabulous head piece and surrounded her display with lots of lovely bright pumpkins and candles.
Sunmi created her floral arrangements for a wedding brief and used gorgeously delicate colours and arrangements within her final project. Her arrangements included a fabulous floral cake and a beautiful long table centre.
