A bit about Georgia
Georgia Miles is the founder of The Sussex Flower School. Her background is eclectic from a degree in Art History from Edinburgh University to the Higher Diploma in Floristry via massage and aromatherapy, teacher training, a lot of travel, yoga, three children and a passion for gardening.
She ran her own successful wedding floristry business for several years before concentrating on teaching. She is a specialist in historical floral design and has also taught on the National Certificate Levels 2, 3 and 4- The Higher Diploma in Floristry – at Plumpton College in East Sussex.
Her vision is simple- make floral design accessible to everybody whatever their skills, background or motivation. The Sussex Flower School was set up in 2010 to provide a more personal method of learning than many college programmes. Students pick and choose courses to suit their needs as they progress. It is a very relaxed environment concentrating on high quality, caring tuition.
You could decide on a one off day course, full retraining, a one to one session to polish your skills (or tackle a difficult design) or just a get together with your friends. You decide what suits you best.
