For the love of flowers

Our ambition at FFS is to inspire students to find the designer within and explore their creativity. Students not only produce gorgeous designs, they are encouraged to feel their own way around each piece of work, rather than replicate a demonstrated design, working by feel and eye as much as textbook. We want our students to think critically and find their own creative path.

We teach using classic and innovative floristry techniques and mechanics, using the best of British and Dutch grown flowers and foliages to produce something that each student can be incredibly proud of.

We teach a range of abilities from novices flower lovers to brides-to-be who love the idea of creating their own wedding designs, to new start ups and experienced professionals who want to add something new to their skill set, get inspired and create with like-minded people.

Beth & KP

Like all good romances Beth & Kirsty met through the mutual love of flowers, dogs & cakes! Re-wind to four years ago, Beth created a gorgeous hand-tie of flowers & foliage for a photoshoot with Kirsty’s lighting range (byKirsty). 

All trust was placed with Beth & I was not disappointed. The image is still used today as the floristry Beth creates is just timeless.

Sharing the same location of Castle Arcade for three years, Beth & Kirsty’s friendship & love of all things green (especially succulents!!) has spiraled. From running sell-out workshops in Kirsty’s shop (home byKirsty) for the last two years to producing amazing jungle inspired window displays, their business & friendship has now launched into a hugely exciting next stage, Forbesfield Flower School.

Multi-tasking to the max, Kirsty will be co-ordinating, organising & chatting all things green to you. Using her vast knowledge of the local independent scene in Cardiff, Kirsty will be bringing stunning venues and partnerships to create unique floristry events for just for you.

Beth’s creativity is truly inspiring & ground-breaking. You will see creations that will blow your mind & have the chance to learn from this amazing talent that is Beth, who has been working in the industry for over thirteen years. You will go away from your course bursting with motivation, passion & a blinking beautiful creation!
