Our Professional Courses have been many years in the making, over the past two decades Narcissus has developed into one of Scotland’s leading Florists and Edinburgh’s best for cutting edge floral design. Founder Sharon Nugent's ethos and commitment to in-house training has seen the creation and nurture of florists from as far afield as Canada, Columbia, Switzerland, and Poland.
Narcissus roots are highly desirable within the industry, for our reputation of outstanding professional practice and impressive creative flair, making our Professional Courses highly credential. All take place in our new purpose-built school being taught by highly skilled professional florists. Here you will learn the skills of professional floristry while also building your own online portfolio using applications that are easily available and in tune with modern practices.
During your time spent in the Narcissus Flower School you will learn new professional techniques offering you a healthy balance of realistic, practical floristry work (working to a deadline, sticking to a brief, problem solving) whilst nurturing your creativity and the development of your own personal style.
