Flowers play such an important role in our lives. Flowers welcome a new baby and honour the departed. Flowers show love or ask for forgiveness. Flowers brighten our work or living space and add beauty and calm to a hospital room. And what would a wedding be without flowers? What better way to say Happy Birthday, than a bouquet of flowers?
The job of a florist is to create the arrangements that decorate our lives. The floristís skill shapes the message of love, respect and friendship associated with a gift of flowers. The floristís job is hands-on, creative, rewarding and as close to nature as one can get while working indoors.
While a natural eye and creative flair can produce beautiful arrangements for the home, the florist needs many other skills as well, including best business practices for the industry. A course in floristry teaches about popular flowers, green and other fillers, together with the principles and elements of good design. Floristry courses also teach fundamental arrangements such as vase, bouquets or container arrangements, corsages and boutonnieres, wedding bouquets, wreaths and novelty arrangements. A student florist will also learn about storing and maintaining flowers, meeting and dealing with customers, and mundane necessities like delivering the arrangements or ringing up a sale.
Because of the importance of flowers in our lives, there is always a demand for qualified and experienced florists. Start training today!
