Floral Design Schools

Flower design is a centuries old art, craft, and skill. Almost anyone can enjoy it -- from weekend gardener and flower enthusiast to part-time florist or master designer. Yet, to really become proficient requires a keen eye for form, proportion, color, balance, texture, and style. It also requires training. Fortunately, there are many fine floral design schools that can help. So, whether you just want to learn the basics of arranging flowers, have a real passion for flower design, or are considering a career in floristry, there's probably a class that's just right for you. These floral design schools are a great place to start. For additional ideas, check with your local colleges and vocational schools, and read all you can on the subject. Contact your favorite local florists, too, because some may offer on-the-job training. And, when it comes to designing flowers, there's a lot to be said for quality classroom instruction combined with real-world floral design experience.

Designing flowers is a lifelong journey of discovery, because there is always something new to learn. Some designers specialize in wedding bouquets, event decorations, or high-style arrangements. Others excel in sympathy tributes or silk flower creations. There are European hand-tied bouquets, Asian designs, botanical themes, and contemporary urban styles to explore, too. The variety of floral design styles, skills, and artistic influences is almost endless. So, whether a part-time hobby or lifelong career, floral design can be an enriching experience for everyone who loves flowers and appreciates great design.
