  • Edwina Tan

    I attended the 3-day Florist Career Commercial Course a month ago. As a beginner in floristry, I have gained more than I imagined. Sarah teaches well with clarity and she makes the lesson contents memorable. She shares her knowledge and experiences with sincerity. I must say I am now more confident in handling flowers and creating flower arrangements as a hobby, using the techniques that I have learnt.

  • Joanne Koh

    I had a great time at the 3 days Floristry Commercial Course as conducted by Sarah of Flowers by Terra. Sarah is so sweet and patient and most generous with the flowers for our teaching materials. This course is one of best in town, covering most comprehensive topics in floristry for any aspiring florists. I highly recommend it and will participate in future new courses again if it materializes. Thanks to Sarah, Geraldine and Ashley for such well organized 3 days programme for us!

  • Lynn Chew

    Recently attended the 3-day florist commercial course conducted by Sarah and Geraldine, I had so much fun and learnt a lot as well!Sarah taught us floral design basics and techniques as well as the business aspect of owning a floral business.I recommend this course for anyone who is looking to have their own floral business or hobbyists who are looking to learn floral design ◡̈

  • Haley Yan

    Throughout these three days, I have learned so much from Sarah. You can really feel her generosity in not just the amount of premium flowers she ordered for us, but also the in-depth knowledge sharing. Apart from floral techniques, she shared the business aspect of being a florist. This was so refreshing for me as I really gained insights into the types of business a florist could specialise in. Sarah is such a natural teacher. Her teachings and sharing have also affirmed some of my ideas.

    I would also like to commend on the way the lessons were structured. At the end of day 1, we learned to arrange a bouquet using spiral technique. This skill was used again over the next two days which allowed us to practise. At the end of the career course with Sarah, I feel confident to start my own floral business. It has fast-tracked my learning as there were so many hands-on activities.

    Sarah, thank you for helping me with my first step to becoming a florist! I look forward to learning more from you in the future :)

    So if you’re like me - wanting to start your own floral business - Flowers by Terra is the place to go! You can even use your SkillsFuture credits for the course. P.S. they also post tutorials and vlogs on their YouTube channel which I binge-watched all in one sitting 🍿

  • Karen Sun

    Chance upon flower by terra Facebook and so happy that I found a florist school that taught garden style of flowers arrangement locally

    Both Sarah and Geraldine are patient and shared many knowledge and skill about floristy

    The teaching materials used were of good quality ie the types of flowers as well as the you tube tutorials!!! So useful for post course self practise that not only you can assess to soft copies notes but also videos ( can helps in pre course preparation too !! )

    Highly recommend to attend courses from Terra Floral Design School , Looking forward to attend other floral classes by Sarah and company soon!!

  • Jes Teo

    Attended a 2-day floral arrangement courses with my sisters recently over the weekend.

    Similar to baking/cooking where mise en place are to prepped beforehand, we got to learn to condition the flowers before they are put together beautifully.

    Other than understanding the techniques, we had to do own creation of table, bouquet and flower glass dome flower arrangements with guidance from owner Sarah and her assistant Geraldine. We also get to bring our creations home.

    We are very happy to be able to learn something new. Fees were also claimable from Skillsfuture.
