About the Course
Immersion in Floristry is a week-long experience of being a florist! Step into our world for a taste of what working in this beautiful profession is really like.
Have you been thinking of a career change? Always been interested in flowers? You can’t miss this! Learn invaluable tips on how to excel as a florist in a real-life setting.
Your week includes:
Spending roughly half of your time work-shadowing our experienced florists, completing tasks yourself as soon as you are ready.
Learning how to create hand-tied bouquets, relaxed bouquets and other arrangements.
Joining in any appropriate Flower School classes that are taking place
Conditioning flowers and wrapping bunches ready for sale in the shop.
This course is strictly limited to 1 person at a time. You will join our regular working hours; 9am-5pm every day except Wednesday, when we receive our flower delivery from Holland and work 8.30-5pm. You will have an hour for lunch each day, during which you can explore the beautiful town of Royal Leamington Spa, with its gardens and great selection of independent cafes and shops. You do not necessarily have to take your 5 days from Monday – Friday – you can split the week up over consecutive weeks if that suits you better. When you contact us with your interest, we’ll discuss timings and find a solution that best fits you.

Her shop in Leamington Spa has survived two recessions and reached the national finals of the UK Flower Shop of the Year four times. Sarah’s infectious passion for all things floral has led her to demonstrate her artistry all over the world and to advise clients such as the BBC, the flower council of Holland and Interflora.
Sarah works with an incredibly talented group of florists who teach with her on her very popular Flower School programme. You are sure to learn an enormous amount from these creative, fun people and have a brilliant week with us!
