Katherine Robbie, Floristry Level 2


Katherine Robbie, Floristry Level 2  

Katherine chose to study Floristry after being made redundant at the age of 40. She has always been interested in flowers and used to enter competitions as a child so she decided it was time to learn more about something she loves.

"I love studying at Kirkley Hall because the hall offers a beautiful setting for flower displays and we were given the opportunity to create designs for real events which is a fantastic experience."

"My knowledge of flowers and floristry techniques has increased enormously and the course has given me my confidence back. I am planning on using my knowledge and skills to start up a business specialising in event and wedding flowers."

Katherine won a prize at the Harrogate Flower Show and Floristry Student of the Year at the annual college student awards.
