Thank you Malpara,
I have so thoroughly enjoyed my time doing your floristry course and am very sad to be leaving. I have learnt such amazing things from you and look forward to putting them into practice in a Floristry Career of my own in the not too distant future.
Thanking you,
Rachel R.

I really loved the experience,
It’s given me so much confidence, mixing colours and being creative. The teacher was terrific, very easy to talk to and made us feel good even if we were not that sure about what we were doing. It was a fun experience.

I really enjoyed the classes, we learnt so much and with ease, Jacquie was very helpful and easy to understand making the classes fun. Thank you very much for the course.
Kind regards

My expectations for this course were very high. They have been met and left me confident that I can reproduce what we have learnt by myself. The Instructor was of a high caliber with great unique technique and expertise.
Thank you for running this course. Look forward to the advanced course!
