The Zita Elze Design Academy was established in 2010.
“I decided to open the Academy after having so many requests from people interested in exploring my personal style. We offer everything from a single day or evening class for amateurs, to a full four-week class for professionals. We also cover a full training for someone wishing to open a shop, focusing heavily on sources of inspiration and creativity. Our 3-day course ‘Concept and Design’ in particular seems to have a revolutionary effect on students, bringing their creative talents to the fullest and teaching them how to design with a whole new vision…” Zita Elze
From in-depth, four week-long design courses for professionals to master classes in wedding design and day workshops on bouquet-tying or wreaths, we invite you to join one of Zita Elze Design Academy’s expert tutorials. All classes are suitable for beginners through to experienced florists.
Whether you’re looking at developing an existing floral design career, want to explore the craft of flower arranging or are simply looking for guidance in creating beautiful gifts, there is a class to suit you. Bespoke classes can also be arranged on request. You can choose to attend alone or come with family, friends, bridesmaids and hens.
“She’s a true magician. This is the distinctive thing about her course, always! Creativity, surprise and art. The working process is intense and tough but I was proud of myself and happy at the end of the courses every time.” Noriko Kondo, 2015, who has studied with Zita on different occasions.
“I just love Zita’s work, including her stunning floral embroidery. Her classes are well known because of her special approach and unique way of teaching, and that’s what I wanted to experience. And I knew in my heart that Zita’s class would be good for my career as a florist. I surprised myself in what I managed to create, and was moved by her detailed and dedicated teaching during the class, her ability to draw out my full potential.” Kim Gyongmi, 2016, who joined Zita for the Advanced Wedding Design Master Class.
