Federica Carlini has a background in event production and holds a Masters degree in Design and Innovation. Her love of flowers led to her becoming the co-manager of LOEWE Flores, a luxury flower boutique in Madrid, Spain.

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
In this online flower course Fede will encourage you to explore the life and work of the floral visionary Constance Spry, and like her, be adventurous and imaginative in your floral design. You’ll learn how to develop creative concepts, embrace a variety of materials and find your own creative voice.
Tutor Fede will guide you through both the conceptual and technical aspects of creating three distinctive designs. By the end of the online floristry class you will have an understanding of contemporary floral design; floristry techniques and mechanics, and an insight into how we at LFS approach our projects.
This online class consists of 9 modules which can be viewed consecutively or can be paused at any time. The downloadable workbook provides supplementary content to the class with step-by-step instructions for each project; a list of materials used and the costs of the ingredients as well.
You will have lifetime access to the videos after creating an account with London Flower School.
The structure, the organization, the level of detail, the color and the photography were perfect; but the most impressive thing for me was the way that Federica was able to connect with people by just knowing that the person on the other side was someone who loved flowers too. Federica explains everything in a perfect way, and always emphasises her inspirations. I also understood somehow that I have to feel every movement, every decision, every position and it will flow if I feel it. I can not wait for the next one!

Federica is an amazing teacher, not only for her clear explanations and her sensibility, but also because she manages to transmit a sense of passion for flowers, of pushing creative boundaries while respecting the legacy of Spry's work. The quality and variety of the floral arrangements covered throughout the video makes this course a great resource for florists, as you can learn from different mechanics as well as from Spry's specific floral aesthetics. Super recommended!

As a florist and teacher, I am always looking for inspiration and new ways to develop floristry, so LFS online courses are the perfect match in that regard. My admiration for the team to get out of the comfort zone (as usual) and give us the possibility of its online version, especially for us students who live far away.
