How to become a floral designer?

After attending our 48-hours very intensive but easy Complete Course in Floral Design you will become a certified professional floral designer. The course is easy to accomplish for anyone – even for those without any training or knowledge in floral design.

Our school offers a European approach to education in floral design.

Historically American flower arranging evolved from European traditional floral design.

Besides traditional floral design, contemporary European masters offer visually dazzling concepts.

From that perspective, the American style is quite conservative. So, if somebody looks for visually stunning, stay-above-the-crowd designs, they hire European-trained florists.

We teach how to start and run a floral design business.

Certified graduate students will have on hand a portfolio with over 200 professionally done images – this is a very valuable investment into your future floral shop or special events business.

Over 5000 students, who have been through the European Floral Design School floral design program have gone on to successfully start their own businesses all over the world, each practicing his or her unique creative style.

Our floral design school was established by Tatiana Chelekhova . She created her own intensive but easy program to study new techniques and trends with universal formulas and patterns.

Tatiana is an international award-winning Master Designer with more than 30 years of experience. Tatiana’s art works are selected to be displayed in International Floral Art Book and Dictionary of Artists by WWAB. Tatiana took floral design to the level of free art.
