The colorful world of floral art…
Floral art is the art of creatively arranging flowers in a beautiful and decorative manner. Most of the florists in Indian cities are not trained formally in floral art and therefore they just stick to the standard flower arrangements in bouquets, wreaths, ensembles and the like.
In contrast, a person trained in floral art can create distinctive and innovative pieces, which enhance the ambiance. In floristry courses, one is taught everything about flowers: selection, preservation, artistic arrangement and embellishment.
Many floral design styles exist around the world. One of the most famous is Ikebana, the Japanese flower arrangement wherein flowers are arranged in angles. The classical European arrangement of rounds and triangles is equally popular.
Floristry can be a career or a pastime...
India has a thriving floriculture industry which exports loose flowers and cut flowers to various countries. Persons trained in floral art have career opportunities in floriculture industry. In addition, one can work with high-end florists in major Indian metros or can venture out on his or her own by setting up an exclusive florist outlet.
However, for many others pursue floral art as a pleasant pastime. They will always have opportunities to show-off their skills among their family, relatives and friends since flowers are such an important part of Indian celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries and the like.
