Azumi is an amazing floral artist whose designs have a balanced aesthetic combination of the traditional Ikebana and the modern floral design. I had the ‘6 weeks Design Principles in Floristry’ course with her and thoroughly enjoyed the course! The course was very informative as well as interesting; I enjoyed both the theory and practical parts. Azumi taught me how to appreciate the uniqueness of each flower/branch/leaf and showcase their characteristics in harmony in the design. I’ve also learnt that a good design is not always packed with flowers but rather everything has its purpose in the design. I strongly recommend this course to all the flower lovers who want to take their floral designs to the next level.

Loved this course! Azumi is a very patient and thoughtful tutor which makes it a great studio environment to learn in. The design principles have given me much more confidence in my ability to build a creative and unique display, using features including grouping, ratios and visual weight. This was the third course I booked with Azumi and it did not disappoint - the classes were really interesting and engaging, and I came away with an opened mind about floral design and how to draw inspiration from the world around me.

This was a wonderful course from beginning to end and exceeded my expectations. Azumi is a floral artist who imparts her love of nature and knowledge with sensitivity, generosity and patience. The theory and practical work were equally engaging. It was a pleasure to work with such beautifully selected flowers and greenery in the calm of the welcoming studio. The course helped de-mystify asymmetrical and more refined arrangements, opening my eyes to a new way of seeing. I was only sorry the course came to an end! Thank you, Azumi.
