Beginners Floristry Level 2

Who’s it for?

The Academy Level 2 course is the ultimate floristry course for complete beginners and a great starting point for a life in floristry. We get you hands-on with floristry right from Day One and we dispense with coursework and classroom assessments, so that you can focus on practicing techniques and learning from your tutors as you go. By the time you have fully qualified in our Level 2 course, you will be ready to work as a freelance or shop florist, start your own business, or enter floristry and flower arranging competitions. In short, you will be ready to take on the world of flowers!

What will IFloral Art Academy_Poltimore house10_MG_0362 learn?

You will learn the essential floristry techniques and principles to create beautiful arrangements and bouquets. Equally importantly, you will also learn how to cost a job for profit, how to buy and order flowers, foliages and sundries, and how to condition your cut materials properly for maximum vase life. You will also have access to the full range of Level 2 hand-outs to support your learning, as well as to the private student facebook page of Academy alumni.

How’s it structured?

The Academy Level 2 course is divided into four principal units/modules, each designed to give you an in-depth knowledge of all practical floristry designs:

  • Arrangement
  • Weddings
  • Hand-tied and gift-wrapping
  • Funerals

You can choose to study one day per week, one weekend per month or a week at a time. You will be awarded a Certificate of Completion for each unit/module you study.

To fully qualify for the Academy of Floral Art Master Training Programme Level 2 in Floristry you will need to study at least 3 of the above 4 options plus both of the following units/modules:

  • Heart of Design – design principles
  • Mock & Exam
