A Love Affair Floral + Event Design is set to launch a summer school.
The classes will take place in Manly, NSW, and will run throughout February.
The school, operating from a luxury beach house, offers six professional classes on the art of floral design, styling, event planning and how to prepare mood boards and quotations for clients. The students will create a floral arrangement, produce a live installation, receive their very own signature tool kit and enjoy snacks and tea.
Inspired to create the school by noticing a gap in the market, founder and creative director Alexandra Oatley said, “People ask me all the time what course they should do. We’ve noticed that there isn’t anything out there that prepares students for today’s industry. People either have floral or event experience, but not both, and the skills that they’ve learnt from other schools can be outdated, so we usually need to retrain people.”
