OUR ENVIRONMENT

NSFD has a strong desire to create a dynamic environment for our students and visitors. We encourage frequent interaction between students and the instructors. In NSFD, we provide an active social network that will open new opportunities.

The school hopes to create a little ‘Eden’ within its premises by providing a relaxed learning environment. Come into the world of flowers and discover the beauty of your own creation with the help of our dedicated instructors. No one is born with all the skills of a floral designer but our committed instructors will teach you the necessary techniques and skills. You will experience the joy of transforming ordinary flowers into a piece of floral art. We welcome you to join us on a journey of self-discovery through the beauty of nature.

TESTIMONIAL

“… so happy to visit your school and see many wonderful design… we could better understand what is the meaning of design! THANK YOU!” June Shishikura, Japan
“I can truly recommend anyone to join NSFD classes as they are done out of true passion for the love of floral profession and the positive development of the floristry industry in the best interest for everyone. NSFD attracts the most enthusiastic students that are always driven by their will to learn more and be of any help when it is a matter of flower design works. I have had the recent pleasure of working together with Anson and his students for the well-known Food, Wine and Arts Weeks 2007 at the Raffles hotel and I must say it was performed in true joy and interest in the world of flowers under the competent lead of Anson himself. I owe him a great thanks and look forward to future projects together.”

“… thank you both teachers Anson Low and June Tan to give me all the guidance and moral support! I am glad that I have chosen a good school and good teachers, this is my honor!…”

“I studied floral arranging with Anson for nearly two years. I have not come across a more dedicated instructor and one who is so generous with his time and expertise. He is truly inspirational.”
Joseph Kennedy, USA
“I have been a student at Nobleman School since November 2004. I started with the Professional Course and now I nearly finished the American Style. What I like is that Anson and June teach you a variety of techniques, beginning with the basic flower arrangements to all kinds of designs. Through school you can be involved in different projects and workshops with designers from all over the world. Not only do you work with flowers, a part of what you learn is connected to interior design and other amazing decorations like jewelry. The school is very flexible and every student follows his own program. You will never miss class because of a holiday. If you are looking for a floral school, please visit Nobleman School of Floral Design.”
Anneke van Eck, Netherlands

“Nobleman School of Floral Design (NSFD) is recommendable to everyone and anyone no matter what nationality or cultural background. The staffs are patient to the students and pay maximum attention to students leaving everyone satisfied at the end of the day. I left the school feeling as if I was well prepared to face such a competitive market!”
Orlanda Gomes, Seychelles
"It felt really great to teach in an environment where I could sense passion all around me. Anson teaches knowledge but especially passion towards his students and this is what basically characterises a true teacher. The small-scaled character of the school exudes an atmosphere of warmth and personality which can but influence you in a positive way. Briefly, I felt honoured to have been invited as a visiting lecturer at the Raffles hotel and been able to share my knowledge and creativity with impassioned students of the Nobleman School. I wish all of you lots of success!"
Tomas De Bruyne, Belgium

“since starting as a complete novice, my appreciation and interest in all things flowers have grown each week. My ability and confidence to produce fantastic designs is incredible, and has only been possible with the patience and support of the teaching staff at Nobleman"
Carole Slater, UK
“ I am proud to be trained in NSFD and will share my experience with others. No regrets coming to NSFD. May Nobleman grow from strength to strength each year ….”
Ruby Heng, Singapore
“As an Image Consultant and Artist, the concept of floral design held a certain fascination for me. In January 2006 I enrolled on the ‘Professional’ course at the NSFD with Designer Anson Low and have not looked back!

What sets the NSFD apart from other schools teaching floral design are : the way in which the classes are taught; the techniques used which allow you to ‘learn and create’ rather than copy; use of good quality fresh flowers and the variety of international students attending the different courses on offer.

In addition to this there are plenty of opportunities to gain ‘hands-on’ experience through helping with preparation work for events throughout the year. The other big plus for me was that the timings were flexible. Which means if you have a family, are working or have to travel, you can still follow a course at the NSFD.

From time to time the NSFD bring in highly respected International Designers and run excellent courses and seminars.

If you are keen to learn more about flowers for your own enjoyment or as a career, look no further. You will not be disappointed and I can vouch that you will experience ‘inspiration through living art ”
