Flower School


Michael Pooley offers 2 very different floral courses, both are taught 1-1.

The courses he offers are tailored to suit anyone from a total novice who loves flowers, to the qualified florist wanting to break the mould. Michael is passionate about technique and time management. He will show you "how to" and then help you break your design barriers and gain more confidence. He specialises in the "cost factor", and teaches you to use more accessible flowers in a far more creative way.

“Flower arranging is subjective, flower selling is objective”



At Twig or at yours

The courses can be taught anywhere and in a timeframe to suit you.  Students taking the career course are encouraged to train at Twig.  Twig is a working environment and has hundreds of tools, props and items that you might need should you want to adapt a design. It also means that if you are a bit slower, you can extend the duration of the course to 15 days should you require.  

If you choose to take the course in your own home or work space, Michael recommends the 80 hour course be taken over 2 or 3 consecutive weeks.  

Michael has been training and mentoring since 1998, and will help build self-confidence. If you want to have the best-dressed table in town, why not give it a try? He helps each student discover and nurture his or her individual style. There are a number of good hotels nearby to suit all budgets
