Your advice about running a floral business is very inspiring for me. I love your arrangement style, very fresh and romantic.
I was looking for an online class in flower arranging with a natural aesthetics, and I found Chelsea's class a breath of fresh air! She gives simple and effective tools to do it, plus I loved having a commitment to produce beautiful work every week! Can't recommend it highly enough!
Manor Farm Cottage Flowers
As a grower of seasonal flowers, with some very basic floristry experience, I was looking for a course that would enable me to build on my skills and grow my confidence, particularly in the area of creating wedding flowers for clients.
Chelsea's online course was just perfect!! Chelsea encourages the use of seasonal blooms and foliage, and her natural style of floristry was fresh and inspiring and encouraged me to find my own design style.
I loved the varied weekly assignments, which are clearly demonstrated by Chelsea and supported with fantastic theory notes covering everything you'll need to confidently tackle creating wedding flowers.
From consulting with a prospective bride, to putting together a professional quotation right through to designing and creating the bouquet, buttonholes, centrepieces and larger-scale arrangements - this fabulous course covers it all.
The freedom of being able to work through the assignments in my own time, at my own pace meant I could fit the learning around my schedule, and really have fun with it.
The online interface was simple to use, and after uploading images of the completed assignments Chelsea would offer constructive feedback and pointers, which is a vital part of the learning process.
I came away feeling much more confident, encouraged, challenged to learn and experiment with my style, and excited about creating wedding flowers!! To anyone wanting to learn more - this is the course for you!! Book a spot immediately!
