Sophie (Alumni)

As a result of studying Floristry at Shuttleworth College, I decided I wanted to open my own business.

I gained a lot more than floristry experience during my time at College, I also learned about the administration side of floristry, such as organising flower orders in a logical, effective, and efficient way. I do a variety of different things from gifts and weddings to preserving flowers in resin.
