Fantastic! Get yourself on this course!

After just two years of being a student at the Academy, I have gained the confidence to go out and start my own floristry business, which is all down to the fantastic teaching of Jo & Helen.
The leap to start studying floristry was a big one for me, but I feel it has been an excellent investment for my future as I have learned so much from studying at the academy.

The course has been informative, thorough and so much fun! I couldn't reccomend it enough!
