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 me…. With cake! Thank you, thank you, Georgia. X."
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 cakes…. 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.

Georgia is a superb teacher and lunch was scrumptious! I'll definitely be back for some more courses next year, many thanks."

"As a mother of two boys aged 10 and 7, and all the running around that entails and also the running of a gift website I don't get much time to myself as don't many mothers I know. I came along to The Sussex Flower School last week for the day and had the most lovely time. The day started with fresh coffee and homemade chocolate brownies and a chance to get to know the other ladies on the course. Georgia then showed us how to hollow out a pumpkin and how to use this as a container for a lovely Autumn display, we then got to have a go and all with fantastic results. A couple of my friends were also on the course and were very surprised as they really didn't think they could make anything with flowers look good! We then had lunch in Georgia's lovely kitchen, the butternut squash tarts, salad and focaccia were homemade by a very good friend of Georgia's and by Georgia herself - it was Autumnal and very delicious. It was such a treat to sit down with lovely interesting people and eat beautifully presented food with no work or children interruptions! In the afternoon Georgia showed us how to make a hand tied bouquet, again with flowers from her cutting garden and other beautiful Autumn flowers. Both my displays took pride of place at our school barn dance and got many complimentary comments and a week later still look amazing. I would highly recommend a day at The Sussex Flower School either by yourself or with a friend or two, a lovely alternative to a spa day and you get to learn so much as well. Thank you Georgia."
