About the 2017 European Floristry School
The school of 2017 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 intrecate 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.
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!”
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’s designs were staged in the local church, an excellent venue to set off these exceptional designs. We’ll share lots more images with you in due course.
