It isn't so easy to discover and become involved in flower arranging these days and this means that many people could miss out on this amazing hobby and for others, an amazing career. These videos help you to dip your toe in - for free - so if you like what you see you will be pleased to know that I will be adding more free videos showing different styles of floral art design and using different types of 'recognised' contemporary flower arranging techniques; so that you have a growing free resource to use.

Something else to consider! One or more of your friends might find flower arranging of interest too and the easiest way for them to discover this would be for you to ask them to also take a look some of my videos and who knows you may both be joining a local flower club; spurned on by what you have learnt here - happy flower arranging
