OPEN COLLEGE NETWORK CERTIFICATE (OCN)
If you love flowers and would enjoy creating floral designs for pleasure, theses courses are for you. Whether you would like to change career, learn a new skill, or add a creative touch to a special occasion, our courses will enable you to learn how to create beautiful designs. You do not need to have any prior experience for these options unless stated. The OCN qualification involves some theory work.
Tuesday 9th January – 19th April 2024
Starting at 18:30 finishing at 21:30.
Maximum of 12 students per session.
The OCN programme focuses on creating and experimenting with a diverse range of floristry designs including hand tied bouquets, floral arrangements and wedding work. Generally, two practical pieces will be completed each week, with the first taken apart in order to complete the second. A small element of written work is completed during class time to support understanding of the principles of practical designs. During your first week you will be given a practical schedule outlining designs to be completed on the programme. Previous students have gone on to professional qualifications and to work freelance within the industry.
Flower materials (and some sundry items) will be provided by the college, prices indicated per class. Scissors and knives can be purchased from our online store.
Book early to avoid disappointment, please visit the online store. (please note should you need to leave your chosen programme all tuition fees are non-refundable except for exceptional circumstances) flowers used will also need to be paid in full.
