Sustainable Sympathy Flowers

Using moss, twine and willow we encourage you to explore the benefits of using sustainable sympathy techniques. You will have the opportunity to work with both flowers and planted material, adding depth to your portfolio as well as to your skill set. We advise you on the most suitable arrangements for both formal and informal services. We explain in detail the best way to approach the business side of sympathy flowers covering; funeral director collaboration the do and don’ts, working with a grieving family, costing and quotation and how to market your business.

We have a willow casket in school for you to dress and take those all important portfolio images. We’ll also head out into the parkland area of Levens Hall with our professional photographer Jessica Reeve in order that we capture the beauty of your flowers nestled amongst the beauty of nature.

During your three days here with us you will create a large casket top piece, a hand tied sheaf, a garland, a large wreath and an urn arrangement.

As many British flowers and foliage supplied by local Cumbrian and British growers as possible will be used on this course.
