Here is a funny question asked by many of prospective students saying "I have no previous experience in flower arrangement. Can I catch up with your lessons ?". Answer is of course YES. Quite frankly speaking we cannot understand the reason behind such a question. They MAY be concerned about if or not they can digest the curriculum of the coming lessons.
To be quite honest with you, we are often asked this kind of questions. If you have a similar question, you may rest assured that the majority of our students do not have any previous experience in floral designs. They have no experiences and no educational background relating to floral designs before taking lessons at our school.
Nevertheless they can digest the curriculum of each course and successfully earn practical skills of fresh flower arrangements.
One of the biggest reasons for this successful training is that we offer semi private lessons limiting number of students no more than 4 per class (typically only 2-3 students per class), which makes it possible for us to provide HANDS ON TRAINING OF ONE ON ONE INSTRUCTIONS.
We can find many schools offer ONLINE education by using internet technology. Frankly, when it comes to floral arrangements, we are unable to provide sufficient training satisfactory to each student if the class is offered on the internet. If they learn history etc., ONLINE class definitely works. However earning a flower arranging skill is something like earning a swimming skill. Unless students have an instructor who can offer timely advice and corrections to each student with interactive communication, it is next to impossible to train students.
