I have done many floristry workshops around Perth & always come back to Flower Design School as everytime I have left a workshop I am filled with so much knowledge. Iris creates an inviting space & guides you with her experience & she always encourages you to put your own creative flair & when you do so, you never feel judged. Iris is an amazing teacher & I will always come back to Flower Design school to broaden my skills.
