20th - 24th Wedding Design – Advanced Master Class with Zita Elze [Details]
The focus of this course lies in transforming creative thought into design for a specific wedding theme. Using Zita Elze’s original approach, students create a mood board to express their theme, then develop and execute the designs. While topics covered included all aspects of wedding design, students may opt for a more individual approach to their learning, depending on their level of previous experience and the complexity of their designs. To enhance portfolios, photos of work can be arranged on request. Some students have chosen to add on location based photographic shoots. Details can be discussed and finalised during your course. Students should bear in mind that extending the course will naturally extend the budget required to cover both extra time and any costs incurred.

29th Hand Tied Bouquet – Master Class with Zita Elze [Details]
Zita Elze’s technique for creating a spiral and/or vertical hand-tied bouquet is entirely personal and unlike any other.

In this hugely popular and transformative class she reveals some of her secrets, immersing students in the fashioning of individual bouquets which are at once perfectly executed, breathtakingly beautiful and wonderfully expressive.
