About the Class

Interactive learning approach – Our classes are fun, informative, friendly and relaxed. We will present students with a handout covering the design topic of each class, packed with detailed conceptual and technical points, botanical names of the flowers and foliages used (available in both English & Chinese), sketches and sample photos to assist learning. Our Instructor will kick start each class with a demonstration of the design with detailed explanation, following a step-by-step method to ensure students develop the necessary applicable techniques and skills.


You will then have the opportunity to work on your own arrangement, guided by our experienced instructors every step of the way with feedbacks as you focus on the building blocks of the craft and establishing a strong foundation of floral know-how.


Everything you make is yours to take home – which will be another learning opportunity to observe different flowers and foliages’ full character and vase life.
