FLORAL DESIGN AND FLORISTRY TRAINING
Welcome to Amber Jean Flowers.
My name is Claire and I have a passion for all things flower related!
I have been a florist for over 25 years working both within the flower industry and education. Having first started my training at Solihull College I was then lucky enough to go on to work at several prestigious florists before starting my career as a floristry tutor for Birmingham Adult Education.
During my floristry career I entered many floral competitions achieving runner up in regional heats of Interflora Florist of the year as well as winning heats at the Spring Florist Event.
I also spent many happy years as a NAFAS area demonstrator traveling the midlands and further afield to share my love of flowers and foliage.
My career within the Education sector gave me the opportunity to pass on my skills and knowledge to many a budding florist! Although a rewarding career I felt that my more recent role as a subject leader took me further and further away from the hands on floristry and I needed an outlet to freely be creative and so Amber Jean Flower School was born.
The Flower School element of my business was established in 2014 with the name change coming later in 2019 in order to offer a full range of services including, bespoke flowers for weddings, events and funerals.
Along with the name change 2019 saw me add another string to my bow as I ventured into the world of growing cut flowers. Rather than import my goal is to eventually solely use British grown seasonal flowers and foliage. I currently live in an urban environment so this is perhaps challenging in regard to space but no less enjoyable.
I continue to grow both within my business and creatively. I aspire to constantly offer new and exciting opportunities within my Flower School as well as providing a bespoke floral services for all occasions with Birmimgham and surrounding areas.
I hope you will join me on my journey.
