From student to student, the goal of learning floral arrangement is different. This is quite natural and understandable. Some people would like to enjoy floral arranging strictly for hobby and some want to engage in floral business after earning a skill of floral decorations.
When joining a floral design school, students should study, in details, what kind of programs and courses are offered by the school they are planning to join. If the school in their mind offers a good program which really fits with their requirements, that is the most ideal situation.
Suppose you want to learn floral designs just for enjoying as a hobby, it MAY not be necessary for you to pay extremely careful attention when making a choice of the program (or course). When it comes to learning for doing floral business, the story is quite different. If you would like to engage in just selling cut flowers at a floral shop, you do not have to earn a high level of floral arranging skills. Therefore you do not need to make a big deal in the choice of program or course you will join.
However if you would like to engage in the business of wedding floral decoration service or funeral floral arrangements, it is quite worthwhile to pay careful attention when making a choice of programs and courses. While many floral design schools offer a program or course specializing in wedding floral decorations, many other schools do not offer funeral floral decorating program/course. Therefore before making a final decision about the choice of school, you are supposed to make a thorough study regarding the programs and curriculum offered by the school you are planning to join.
Among people who are interested in learning wedding floral arrangements, some people already learned general wedding floral decorations and want to focus on a certain limited arrangement such as only bouquet or corsage etc. If the school they are planning to join offers a program focusing on such narrow area as mention above, they can join the class which helps minimize the cost of learning floral designs.
Apart from wedding floral decoration, what we should not forget about is funeral flower arrangement. Unlike wedding flowers, the demand for funeral flower decoration is quite stable. While wedding flower business usually slows down during the winter season, there is a high demand for funeral flowers in this season. Therefore if they would like to stabilize a floral business that is not affected by a seasonal factor, funeral flower decoration should be included in the portfolio of your arrangements in addition to wedding floral arrangements.
It is recommended to look for a floral school or instructor who can teach funeral floral decorations as well. For those who live in the San Francisco Bay Area or Silicon Valley (San Jose) and have keen interest in learning wedding and/or funeral floral decorations, California Flower Art Academy can help. From a WIDE RANGE OF PROGRAMS, they can find the most favorite course depending on their needs and goal. For more information, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
