Advanced Dutch Floral Design Course

After the DFD professional course there is much more to learn about the world of professional floral design. That’s why Boerma Instituut offers the possibility of a course that seamlessly fits on the DFD professional course, the Advanced Dutch Floral Design (ADFD)-professional course. 

To participate in this professional course, you first have to pass the examination of the Dutch Floral Design-professional course or an education of a comparable level.

Advanced Dutch Floral Design international English course

The international Advanced Dutch Floral Design (ADFD)-professional course is in English, during 3 weeks, 5 days per week.

What do you learn at the Advanced Dutch Floral Design (ADFD)?

The Advanced Dutch Floral Design (ADFD)-professional course is above all a sheer practical course that sets you to work using your own creativity and ideas. Of course it provides comprehensive information on materials and techniques, however, the teacher merely guides you in the process of creating your own designs and arrangements and carrying them out. In each lesson, you make a floral design work and afterwards all arrangements are discussed amongst all students, so everybody learns as much as possible from each other.

The program

During the ADFD course, a large number of new works, techniques, and materials are treated. Some of these are mentioned here for illustration:

The Greek Laurel wreath, arrangements pinned in netting and/or green conifers, contemporary versions of the classic arm bouquet.

Also, part of the professional course is a car decoration. In this part, you work together with a group of fellow students from the first draft to the final flower.

Course dates

Monday October 7th to Friday, October 25th, 2019 (3 weeks)
All course days start at 09.30 AM until 16.15 PM, and this includes a coffee (or tea) break and a Dutch lunch buffet.
