Content of training – floral design basics
In this course we use the method and books of DFA (Dutch Flower Arranger) and our own Blomatelier flowerguide as a guideline.
For beginners the following DFA subjects will be taught:
all types of handtied bouquets, weddingbouquets, corsages and body decorations, funeral designs, and good basics for the important topics below:
Creative extra Blomexperience!
Apart from these basic DFA skills you will also:
- Train techniques which are trending topics such as wiring, pinning and gluing, winding and weaving and conneting.
- Study flower names at the flower auction and learn all the tricks and tips of the trade and buying at wholesalers.
- Visit trendy florists & flower events
- Explore your own creativity by assisting on weddings and projects on demand.
The training consists a minimum of 30 lessons of 4 hours and we advise 10 extra practice days in Blomatelier or another floristry company. The more you study the better results you will have, and the more fun.
