This last month at Pearsons school of Floristry we really have seen the positive power of flowers. We were delighted to be host to McQueens Flower School from London, for what proved to be a very exhilarating week of floral education and we were thrilled to be joined by so many interstate and international students. Just going to show that floristry is universal and we all have so much in common.
The one week course by McQueens at PSF saw budding and experienced florists from as far afield as Kuala Lumpur and New Zealand and from all around Australia join together. To immerse themselves for a week of high end floristry and meet and learn from likeminded people and of course from the stars of the show, McQueens Flower School.
We certainly all made new friends that week and we couldn’t have been more captivated by the McQueens team, Emily Mathison who wowed us nonstop with her floristry talent and beautiful sense of humour and Duncan McCabe who inspired us all with valuable insights into social media and its role in floristry today.
Our Certificate lll Floristry students also got the benefit of McQueens Australian visit, at our Enrichment evening. Emily and Duncan really turned up the wow factor in a brilliant demonstration full of insight and design know how, What an experience, as part of the Cert lll course our students get to rub shoulders and chat to London’s premier and most exciting floral brand.
And it doesn’t stop there! Certificate lll students also got the opportunity to be part of an amazing team that created stunning table displays for the Might and Power race day at Royal Randwick. Every year Pearsons Florist donate the table centers to this wonderful charity event for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance. Our Cert lll volunteers not only got to work on the table centers (and enjoy a lovely race course lunch) they also got to see the amazing tree installations that the McQueens guys made on the last day of their course.
"I miss my time in Sydney so much, enjoyed the course thoroughly. You, Lynne, Emily, Duncan and the rest of your team were all nice, warm and friendly! Definitely one of my best memories!" - Esther Chong
"I'm so grateful I got to be a part of it. I hope I can come up again some time as you have so many great classes. Thank you so much for bringing Emily and Duncan to us, I'll treasure my weeks experiences. Emily and Duncan really made this week the most amazing experience for all and we can’t thank them enough for sharing their passion and love of floristry." - Karen Alderson
