"It is difficult to actually put into words how much I have gained from my time at 'Flower School' with Iris. The ability Iris has to encourage and assist in making an idea come alive is amazing. I cannot thank Iris enough for helping me establish my new career in Floral design, I will always be thankful for my education, not to mention the fun, laughter and 'happy' times spent together, I would totally recommend the school to anyone serious in learning all about the wonderful world of floristry." - Jenny Fleming

So helpful to keep learning and progressing skills in a no pressure, fun environment."- Suzie Lindley
"When I was looking for a flower school to help me build my floristry dream Iris was a godsend. She started with the basic skill set, but then helped me progress quickly to elaborate bouquets, tricky & technical boutonnieres, elaborate garlands, vessel arrangements and much, much more ... Iris is not only professional and enthusiastic, but she is also super supportive and she helped me to believe in my abilities and ultimately, my flower dream. And now I'm living that dream - I can never thank Iris enough for that xxx" - Nardine Walford-Jones

More aAbout Flower Design School...
Flower Design School is a private floristry training provider in Perth. Classes are student-focussed, and each student receives one-on-one attention throughout the process. Courses and workshops are available for everyone from beginners to experienced florists looking to hone their craft.
European Master Florist and Principal at Flower Design School Iris Pich was instilled with an early love for the beauty of nature growing up around flowers in her father's nursery. ‘I grew up making little flower bouquets and helping stripping and bunching all sorts of wonderful flowers, ready for the wholesale markets.’
After finishing school, her dad encouraged her to take up floristry and Iris has never looked back. She loves the hands-on nature of the work and the freedom from being stuck behind a desk all day, relishing the chance to show off her creativity with the new plants and flowers that come with each passing season.
Surrounded by the subtle aroma of fresh florals, the appeal of changing careers to become a florist may be clear for some. Iris advises hopeful florists not to underestimate the amount of knowledge and skill that is required to truly be an expert florist.
As she says, ‘It is a trade profession after all and it does need to be explored and learnt properly.’ Iris recommends getting as much training as possible from someone who is experienced in the industry to ensure that you have all the tools you need to get started.
Take your time to understand the flowers and other materials you will be working with so that you can appreciate how they all work together.
