Balloon design

Balloon design is a popular means of event decoration and many people like to combine this with floristry skills – our courses cover the use of both air and helium gas balloons to create a range of exciting design ideas.


Floristry courses include areas of interest such as home decoration and gift work, wedding design, arrangements for parties and events and sympathy flowers.


Gardening is a great way to explore design skills, relax, keep fit and even grow some of your own fantastic tasting food. Whether you are a first time gardener or already have some experience, there is always something new to learn in this absorbing subject.

I thoroughly enjoyed the six-week beginners' floristry course. The tutor made me feel at ease. She was very friendly, patient, attentive, always encouraging and very professional in her approach. Each week I looked forward to attending her classes and learning a new valuable skill, most of which I am now using in my spare time. I am very happy with the new life experience and insight I've gained. I am looking forward to the next course.
