I joined the Career Change Course in September 2019.  It was an amazing life changing experience!  Georgia is so friendly, warm and welcoming.  Having been out of work for a year, I was quite nervous, but Georgia instantly put me at ease.  With her kind, fun and inclusive approach, I felt comfortable enough to relax and enjoy the course.  So much so that I feel all of us on the same course have become firm friends.  Helping each other on this journey.  Always with Georgia's and Christine's guidance on hand forever!  Even after the course.  Georgia and her 'assistant' Christine know their stuff!  They have lots of experience and help you every step of the way.  I have gone on to do some of her other amazing courses such as Wild and Free Bouquet and Wiring Techniques.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of the courses at The Sussex Flower School.  Sue







Such a wonderful course, Iíve absolutely loved it! Each of the sessions were so well planned; the perfect mix of information, practical work and cake! 


It really is a career changer, I feel like I have everything I need to get started as a florist now and very supported, I know there is a whole network of support from the others on the course as well as Georgia, Christine and the forum which is very reassuring.


Would 100% recommend, Iíve already earmarked a whole list of further courses I want to do at The Sussex Flower School!  Laura





íI have just completed the course for a career change with the most wonderful Georgia. This has been the best experience of my life and not only inspirational but truly motivating, encouraging and enlightening. Anyone that is looking for a new direction and a future full of promise need look no further. During this time I have had the pleasure of meeting the most fantastic and amazing like- minded people that have also provided support every step of the way. Also, with the wonderful Christine lending a helping hand, yet alone creating lovely lunches, we couldnít have asked for more. I wish I could spend every day learning more about creativity with flowers, with Georgia, but sadly itís time to fly the nest! Love you all, Maranda xxx💕



Thank you Georgia for the most wonderful last few months on the Career Change course. I have loved the support and encouragement. With Georgiaís expertise I have surprised myself in what I have achieved and feel well equipped to start my new adventure into the floristry world. I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in floristry and the friends you make on the course are the best.

'Sometimes we go along with our businesses year after year and thinking oh im okay with my designs I donít need to go and do more courses as ive done some already, and I know how to do that anyway,  but then coming to you ends up giving me so many new ideas, and ive come away thinking oh I ll do this and do that!,  And also its lovely meeting new people, and seeing how they would interpret the design with exactly the same flowers!   So thanks it was really good, oh and lunch was wonderful and filling as well.' Rachel, Budding Sensations 

 



Thank you so much for yet another brilliant course today. Loved every minute, so special to be submerged in your awesome flowery world!

How do we adequately thank you for everything you have taught us: flowers and more. The best course I have ever done! Lisa


You have done so much for me and helped me to change my whole life. I'm so grateful and will definitely be back for more flower school input in the future. SO much love for you.

This has been one of the most enjoyable, fantastic things I have ever done, Jo

There aren't enough words to let you know what a great teacher you really are! Mandy

Thank you so much Georgia. You are amazing and such a star with your calming, professional style. you have helped me so much.

Thank you lovely Georgia for a truly amazing course. I will be back to learn more! 

Thankyou for being a truly inspirational; and wonderful teacher. I have loved every minute of the course and am thrilled to leave with new skills and flowery friends...Emily

Just a wee note to say a HUGE thank you for such a wonderful couple of months on the Career Change Course. I have loved every minute of it and will miss my weekly dose of the TSFS medicine! You are fantastic teacher and mentor and you offer such a unique and nourishing learning environment.


You have been an inspiration to all of us and I just want to say thank you


I just wanted to reiterate my thanks for our 1:1 session yesterday.  I absolutely loved it and now feel more confident to unleash my limited creativity with flowers. It gave me so much pleasure and a sense of stress release to create two beautiful displays especially as I could take the bouquet to my parents as a special thanks for an amazing birthday present. I only wish Iíd had the confidence to do it years ago!


I am so glad I decided to do the 'Further your Skills' course. I was on such a high after finishing the Career Change Course that I just felt I needed to learn more! I was so so nervous when I started the Career Change Course in September but by the end you had given me so much confidence in myself and my ability to create amazing things with flowers. 
I had always wanted to learn about becoming a florist ever since I left school and I have just never had that confidence to do it. But last year I told myself that this is something that I really want to do and so I just need to do it and I am so glad that I did because every time I walk into your class room I feel so welcome and comfortable and it is just such a lovely environment to be in especially with all the coffee, cake and flowers! 
Now I am doing the further your skills course and I am just loving it. The freedom, creativity, advice, help and support is just so great and I can't wait for next week..  


This is a very enjoyable day. Georgia was a delightful teacher and made the group feel very welcome. The course content was very informative in a relaxing environment. I learnt a huge amount whilst having great fun with the flowers. Thank you.

It's always a fabulous day at The Sussex Flower School, I always enjoy going there to update my skills and make new flowery friends, whether you are a beginner or an experienced florist like I am, Georgia's teaching at The Sussex Flower School incorporates everyone's level of ability. I would recommend any course.

I so enjoyed my course with you in every way. You helped me more than you could ever know.

Pure 'floral therapy'

Thank you for spoiling us and making us feel nurtured

Your enthusiasm for floristry and life in general is so catching and a breath of fresh air!


You are fantastic at what you do and your personality shines through all the time, totally gifted!

Had a great day. Arrived planning to delegate all aspects of floristry on our wedding day. Left thinking I'll attempt it all 😂💐thank you! Plus I'm coming back just for the super cake and lunch!


What a FANTASTIC experience!! I did a 1-2-1 class, and I learnt more in the 5 hours with Georgia, then I did in a 3 day flower course in London. Georgia was great in giving me as much information that I needed to take away with me, all of the ideas that I wanted to try she showed me how to do, and even gave me advice on what to buy. If you are considering attending one of Georgia's classes, I would stop thinking and start booking. You will not regret it!! Thank you to Georgia for being a fantastic and lovely host and I wish you continued success!! Emily--Yacht student. 

I want to thank you for the courses and wonderful teaching and advice you have given me this year. I so enjoyed Wedding Flowers, Urns, Pedestals and Sympathy Flowers. Coming to The Sussex Flower School with you and Christine has given me time out during a difficult year and a lot of happiness. 


A massive THANK YOU for running the bouquet course last Thursday. I really enjoyed myself, you were incredibly inspiring and your tips and techniques were great and very helpful! I won't forget 2 o'clock and Robin Hood!!!! I would love to stay in touch and if it's ok I will connect in May when I leave my full time job - such exciting times and I can't wait to get involved in the florist world, my bigger passion...




My dear Georgia, thank you SO much for today. I loved the course and i do feel more confident about hand tied's now. Best of all was your wonderful LOVE of life. thank you for an amazing day.


Thank you again for being such an amazing teacher and for being so inspirational.  Although I have had to attend other courses, I absolutely promise you that yours was the best, and your way of teaching and making people feel so at ease, is a joy to be part of.


This was a superb course I learned a lot just have to put it into practice What an amazing place I shall be going again thank you Georgia for a fun day. 


"It's been lovely being back in the flower world again and you're always so inspiring, I look forward to doing more courses with you soon..."



"The amount and choice of materials was unbelievable - like being in a sweet shop! Working as part of a team was invaluable experience- with your fantastic support and guidance.....I came away with so much more than I expected. I thought the Career Change Course was excellent but this course went to another level...." (Large Scale Floral Designs)


'This course (the three day Large Scale Designs course) is well worth doing if you plan on doing event floristry or just fancy being creative for 3 days with beautiful flowers. It emphasises how as individuals we need to be able to work together and problem solve. I was part of a fantastic group, we pulled together and came up with some wonderful designs. It was a busy and thoroughly exhausting three days but what we produced was so beautiful. Apart from having a fantastic choice of flowers to use, Georgia also had Emma, a professional photographer come and take pictures. The finished display looked amazing.'



"Thank you so much for a fantastic week of introduction to wedding floristry.  It has been a joy to be part of, and I have learnt so much! I'm so pleased to have chosen your course. You and Christine looked after us perfectly, the constant supply of drinks, cake, delicious lunch and great humour and all round loveliness.  My brain is full of floristry and happy thoughts!"


"Georgia possesses a rare gift in that she can tune in to a person's soul journey through the medium of flowers. As a working events and contract florist, I needed to refine certain techniques and on my one-to-one day Georgia provided much appreciated practical guidance on my floral journey. A landmark day for meÖ. With cake! Thank you, thank you, Georgia. X."
 



"I could not recommend Georgia's courses enough, they really are life changing. Once you go, you really won't want to leave!"

 

"You have given me the confidence to follow my dream and start my own business. I'm so happy I chose your school to start my journey as a florist and most of all I hope I have found a wonderful friend for life..."

"Just to say I had the most fantastic day with you last Thursday and came away absolutely buzzing! It was brilliant and you were so inspiring! Thank you very, very much. I am very keen to start my new hobby!"


"I attended The 'wedding bouquet 2 day course' as a complete novice and WOW what an amazing 2 days! I really didn't know what to expect as I'm in the process of changing my career and opening my own florist and so am having to learn at a very fast pace! Georgia makes you feel so relaxed, puts you at ease in a lovely relaxed environment which enables you to absorb some of the huge wealth of knowledge Georgia has, not only in floristry but also how to run an effective, prosperous florist business. I learnt so much more than the course prospectus over the 2 days and will definitely return for further courses. I can't recommend Georgia's courses highly enough. Finally I must mention the lunch, delicious and of course the cakesÖ. Yum!! Thanks Georgia for making me feel my career change is possible, see you again. "



"Just to say thank you for yesterday. I loved every minute from the time I walked in the door. It was like being in a sweetie shop full of the most delicious things. Smiley faces all morning and the great chat like birds in spring making their nests. "

"Georgia Miles is a fabulous teacher and makes it fun too"

"Here's my finished wedding and bridesmaids bouquets. Thank you so much for everything you taught me, I would not of had the confidence or knowledge to create these.."



"I joined the Sussex Flower School at the beginning of February to do the eight week career change course. Having never done any kind of floristry before, only arranging flowers for myself at home, I was a bit worried that the course would be too advanced for me but Georgia assured me I would be fine. I met the loveliest ladies at the course, made some new friends and found Georgia to be the most welcoming, friendliest person I could have hoped for. After day one, I was totally hooked and knew I had made the right choice. I looked forward to Friday each week and was sorry when it all ended, however, I felt very confident to be able to set out on my own. I have since joined Georgia on the three day wedding course which was very interesting and will definitely be booking more courses with her in the future."



"I enjoyed it so much and left feeling inspired, enthused and rediscovered..."


"A very big and heartfelt thank you Georgia, so much more than just a flower school!"


"Thankyou for a magical day. It was everything I hoped for and more. What a treasure to find. Look forward to much more."

"Thank you sooooo much Georgia for an amazing day, have learnt so much today,everything from your welcome to instructions were clear and precise. We all had our own style and you made me feel I had really achieved some positivity, i want to go and collect lots of flowers and foilage and make more wonderful bouquets. Many thanks to phillipa for a delicious lunch too. ""An absolutely fabulous day doing vintage flowers!
Georgia could not have been more helpful and had such excellent knowledge.... I learnt a great deal and will book another course without doubt. 
Would highly recommend. 
Another bonus was the refreshments and lunch were just delicious and so plentiful!
A treat of a day... "


"When I drove away on Friday I felt quite overwhelmed - I think because I enjoyed my week so much and the thought of not spending every week with flowers was a sad one....."
