This comprehensive course will introduce beginning students to the exciting field of floral design. Principles and elements of design, proper mechanics of construction, care and handling of fresh materials and use of color are the focal points. For those desiring to become a Certified Florist, this class is a great first step.

Time will be divided between lecture and hands-on design. All materials are included in the course fee and students will have a completed design to take home each week. Topics include: vased arrangements,symmetrical triangles, asymmetrical triangles, horizontal centerpieces, round designs, hand-tied bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.

The class will meet from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Wednesday for 12 weeks beginning June 5. There are 36 hours of classroom instruction.

Since this is a personal enrichment course there will be no exams.

The limited course enrollment of 12 will ensure that each student receives personal attention.

This course builds upon the foundation of the basic design course. The focus will be on the information presented in the Certified Florist (CF) Manual with the goal of preparing students to take the CF examination. (Students who do not wish to take the CF exam will still be welcome.)

The CF manual is the text for this course. You may purchase this manual at http://www.michiganfloral.org or call 517-575-0110. This manual is recommended but not required. All other materials will be included in the registration fee.

Time will be divided between lecture and hands on design. A sample test will be given on each topic. Lecture topics include: care and handling of flowers and plants, product identification, customer relations,sales, delivery, marketing, accounting, display, and intermediate floral design. Design topics include: vased arrangements, bridal bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres and sympathy. Designs will incorporate the contemporary techniques of grouping, layering, basing, framing, and many more. Each week you will take home your designs.

The class will meet from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Thursday for 12 weeks beginning June 6. There will be no class the week of July 4. There are 36 hours of classroom instruction.

Since this is a personal enrichment course there will be no graded exams. The limited course enrollment of 12 will ensure that each student receives personal attention.

    Hi Tim!

    I saw this online and thought of you…it’s an umbrella color wheel! :) It not only remindes me of the floral design classes but also of that nifty little watch of yours!

    I am disappointed that MSU is not offering your fall and holiday floral design classes this fall thru MSU’s evening college. Are you offering any such one day classes elsewhere?
