HOW DO I CHOOSE A FLOWER SCHOOL?

Many of London’s best florists offer workshops and classes to the novice florist. You must first decide on what you wish to gain from the experience – wether it is to just test the water, build team relationships, have some fun or begin a foundation of a new career. Research the tutors and check out any reviews left by previous students. You’ll find many places that will teach you but we believe only Orchidya will teach you correctly.
