Questions to Ask About Flower Arranging Instruction

William Wordsworth calls flowers “the poet’s darling” in his poem “To the Daisy,” and indeed there’s something fresh and life-affirming about a vase of fresh flowers. Floral arrangement classes are taught at craft stores, by master gardeners, and as professional education courses. You can learn about anything from making fresh-cut gift arrangements out of homegrown roses, to creating artificial bouquets out of silk, fabric and nylon flowers. When looking for instruction classes, ask these questions.

  • What classes do you offer?
    Free public demonstrations, beginner’s training, and do-it-yourself wedding courses are some of the more casual classes you can take. Or look for niche classes teaching pressed petal paper designs and holiday centerpieces. If you aim to become a professional florist, you can complete courses from state-licensed design schools in as little as two weeks.

  • What styles do you teach?
    Contemporary floral design tends to be more minimalist than traditional design. Oriental design may incorporate paper origami. Free-style designs may include bamboo and tree branches. Look for a class that reflects your aesthetic inclinations.

  • Does your design school have a placement assistance program?
    Whether you want to become a wedding florist, specialize in silk flowers or work for a general florist shop, your design school may be able to help you research opportunities, prepare a resume, go through the interview process, and find internships. Ask about what percentage of graduates secure jobs.

  • What is the background of your instructors and school?
    Find out what kind of background teachers have in floral design including how long they have worked in the industry and whether they have teaching certifications. If you are wishing to obtain professional instruction, ask whether the school is state-licensed.

    Taking floral arrangement courses at a local school can put you in touch with your creative side. There are a variety of classes to choose from, at a variety of skill levels. Take a beginner course on fresh petal arrangements or silk bouquets. Or, take an advanced course learning how to make elaborate wedding trains out of roses.

    Colleges and universities often boast classes focusing on modern or contemporary flower arrangements, usually held at night. Check out your local college’s website or visit the guidance office to find instruction course listings by qualified instructors. Most teachers are florists or artists, providing insight into how to grow garden flowers, how to cut them and how to properly arrange them in a centerpiece vase.

    Instructors should be creative by nature, with a gift for design, such as for paper origami or artificial flowers. They should pay close attention to detail, yet present a beautiful overall floral vase design to impress a wedding crowd, for example. Some classes incorporate certain themes, or even gift baskets with other items like candy and stuffed animals. Technique is a big part of any floral arrangement class, with focuses on areas like how to make fresh cuts, and how to hide imperfections.

    Instructors teach students the different meanings of flowers like a daisy or a rose, which traditionally signifies love. They may incorporate various elements, such as fabric like nylon. Classes should be arranged according to skill level, with beginner, intermediate, and advanced classes. In addition to in-class instruction, online course offerings may be available, as well as night classes. A quick call to the school should clear this and any other course questions up.
