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 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 4 weeks, 5 days per week.

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

Where the Professional Dutch Floral Design course focuses on the fundamentals and is very practically oriented, the Advanced course will start developing your own creativity and ideas.
The biggest difference is that in this course the teacher will show several techniques and then everyone will start working on their own design according to the subject of the day.
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:

Foam free techniques, advanced bridal work, cascading bridal bouquet, modern funeral arrangements, event design.

There will also be multiple group projects to get used to working together with other florists, from the first draft to the final flower.
