BFA European Floristry School

The BFA European Floristry School takes place once every 2 years around Mid August. Created for florists that want to immerse themselves in a few day of inspiration and learn new techniques to push the boundaries. Those attending the three days are taught by three of the best designers in the world who create floral art, introduce new concepts and share a range of designs including bridal work.

The Summer school always has a fantastic atmosphere with like minded florists that are embracing the new ideas. New friendships are formed and a fantastic time is had by all.

How it works

Students attending the school are provided with all the flower and sundries required (you can even take home what you don't use.)  Those fortunate to attend the full course will spend one day with each tutor learning the tutors chosen subject and concept designs.

The atmosphere of the workshops are wonderfully relaxed, yet the work will stretch even the most experienced designer.  

Moreton Morrell is a lovely college, based in the heart of Warwickshire countryside, with gardens are full of flowers and foliages ready to be explored, you can even cut materials from the grounds should you wish!  Lunch is provided each day and tea and coffee are on tap. We usually have a sociable evening out altogether for something to eat and drink too. We are confident the EFS will prove to be a special place for learning and relaxation.


There are lots of B&B's and Hotels around if you require any further information please contact Tracy on the above details.

The European Floristry School takes place once every 2 years and many of the participants that attended this year came to the previous school back in 2015.

The school was held at Moreton Morrell College, this beautiful countryside location was the perfect location with excellent facilities and grounds that the international tutors Mark Pampling  from Australia, Moniek Vanden Berghe from Belgium, Nicu Bocancea  from Romania as well as the student were delighted to be able to pick from.

The tutors arrived and preparations begun on Thursday, with such technical and intricate work there was much to do, we had an amazing team of helper who we're very grateful to: Vicky Raine, Rebecca Hough, Claire Hammond, Danielle Ellison, Jane Benefield were all super-stars our thanks go to them all.

Nicu one of our exceptional tutors joined us from Romania. His work is admired worldwide, for us he focused his attention on structures and frameworks that will left students you ore-inspired.

Karen Massey attended for the first time, she came over from Dublin and wasn't able to attend all this days this year, but still wouldn't have miss it for the world; "I had a great time at the BFA Summer School this year. Met so many lovely , like minded people. The course was really well organised, the venue is great. The tutors were fabulous, really friendly and really happy to share their knowledge. I learnt lots of little tips too. I can’t wait for next time and hope to be able to go for all three days! worth leaving my house at 3.30 am!"


Moniek vanden Berghe an internationally acclaimed designer and author from Belgium focused on what she is best known for, wedding work.

Khalida Bharmal from U-Floria wrote to us to give her thanks The course was really interesting and informative. Moniek is an amazing designer and tutor, very helpful with questions and her concept of design. She has a lot of patience and takes pride in putting all the designs together.  It has given me an insight into exploring different ways of using materials to make the bridal bouquets and wrist corsages. Please thank the whole team for their amazing help.


Mark Pamling flew in from Austrailia, another world renowned florist. His creations, and those of his students were staged in the local church, an excellent venue to set off these exceptional designs. A specialist climber was arranged to be not only be on-hand to hang the designs in the church but also cut back tree sections for landscape work.
