Do you remember this day. They were happy days.
Just looking for what I am going to do at the craft fayre. Something way out as usual. Thought you would like to see my certificate. You were the best tutor I ever had both being you and also for the most beautiful wire work I have ever seen. You know that as I have told you before. It will always be in my memory and in my heart. You were the start of my long, long journey. I said I would do it and now I have. THANK YOU!!!! You can put it on FB if your face book if you would like to. I was going to put it on mine. It will be on my website that is being done. I will be writing up my journey and if ok your name and Otley will be mentioned. I am feeling really excited now.
I don’t mind if you want to tell your students or whoever that it was you that gave me the inspiration to do good quality floristry and you that made me into a professional florist. Don’t forget!!! If you are in contact with Sally tell her I often think of our days together.
Love to you
“Absolutely brilliant florist and teacher. We had so much fun doing a florist session for my hen do. Amanda was very welcoming and easy to get along with booking was easy and I was involved in the preparations from the start I.e what we wanted to make colours flowers etc. Couldn’t recommend her any more!”
“I’ve known Amanda for about 15 years as she was the florist we recommended to brides when I was an event manager. So when I got married in August, there was only one person I wanted to do my bouquet and other bits. I clumsily tried to explain what I was looking for, that it was more about the colours than the type of flowers and Amanda knew what would work and what would be available and did an amazing job. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her for skills as a florist or trainer. Thanks Mand. X”
“I loved having Amanda as my Level 2 floristry tutor at Easton & Otley College. As one of a group of mature student’s I felt completely out of my depth, but with Amanda’s relaxed and encouraging style of teaching she made us all feel that we could become florist’s and good one’s at that, and needless to say most of us gained a distinction! No question was ever silly and we all felt listened to. Amanda ensured that we were pushed when necessary and that if it all got too much, we would break and go and have a walk round the grounds or a coffee, so that we could talk our worries through and catch our breath, in what was a difficult but very enjoyable course. I enjoyed having Amanda so much as my tutor that I stayed on at Easton, along with several other Level 2 mature students and we all completed our Level 3 with distinction. Amanda is very much “there” for all her students and I have never known her to give up on anyone. She will always try to find a way to make you understand and to encourage you to stretch yourself. We are now firm friends and I am glad to have her to call upon if I need to know anything! Thank you Amanda xx”
“We have recently used Amanda to create our wedding bouquets, corsages and button holes and WOW we were so impressed. We had a consultation where I shared some pictures of the style of bouquet I (as the bride) would like and style for the bridesmaids and Amanda did the rest.
I couldn’t have been happier when they arrived on my wedding day as they were perfect, as was the beautiful bouquet order for my mum, which was delivered with discretion.
Thank you so so much!”
