After a fantastic response to their new wedding floristry course, staff at East Durham College’s Houghall Campus have decided to take the course to Gateshead’s Bill Quay Community Farm.

The course will be taught by floristry lecturers from the Durham-based college, teaching you how to design button holes, bridesmaid hand-tied posies and decorative table arrangements.

If you are interested in flowers for weddings, working as a florist, have trained in floristry, are getting married or know someone who is getting married in the near future this course will be ideal for you.

The College entered into a new partnership with Bill Quay last summer and started to run a full time animal care course in September.

East Durham College floristry lecturer Sue Lee said: “We have been delighted by the interest and success of our first course up at Bill Quay Farm. And I’m thrilled we are now able to offer people on Tyneside the chance to take part in one of our specialist floristry short courses.

“No previous experience is necessary as this course is designed with the ambitious beginner in mind. You will work to your own ability level and this practical course will show you how to design and create some stunning wedding-related designs.

“Experienced florists would also benefit from this course as they will get the chance to learn new skills and create their own designs under the expert guidance of our highly experienced lecturers.”The course starts on Thursday 30th January and runs for three weeks, each Thursday from 1pm till 3pm at Bill Quay Community Farm.

The course fee is £95.00 and the cost includes all the materials and flowers you’ll need to take part.
