Capel Manor College Set For a Blooming Marvellous British Flowers Week
British Flowers Week – the national campaign to encourage everyone to buy more seasonal, locally grown cut flowers, foliage and plants – is taking place between 14 and 20 June, and Capel Manor College will be celebrating in style.
Level 2 and Level 3 floristry, event planning and event styling students will be creating beautiful floral displays for members of the public to see at their campus in Enfield.
The displays will feature a mixture of British flowers from London’s New Covent Garden Flower Market and Forty Hall Farm, as well as seasonal foliage grown within Capel Manor Gardens.
Floristry lecturer, Catherine Rice, at Capel Manor College, said: “British Flowers Week is a great opportunity for us to educate our students and the public about British flowers and what British growers have to offer, championing a more carbon neutral and seasonal way of working in the floristry industry and using more sustainable floristry methods.”
The College is also delighted to offer a new Certificate in Creative Craft – British Flowers (Level 3) course, which is available to study at their Enfield and Mottingham campuses in London from September 2021. It is a part-time course for adults aged 19 or over.
Anyone who is interested in studying this course or launching a new career in the floristry industry is invited to attend the College’s Open Day on Saturday 26 June, 10am to 3pm, which takes place at all six campuses across London: Brooks Farm (Leyton), Crystal Palace Park, Enfield, Gunnersbury Park, Mottingham and Regent’s Park.
