I'm the creative behind Joseph Massie Studio - our award winning art studio, our flower studio, and our flower school! I've been so privileged throughout my career to exhibit and win at some of the world's most incredible floral shows - including winning five gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show. Alongside designing, my twin passion is sharing my knowledge, and empowering anyone who wants to take their first steps into the world of flowers. Including you.
As a floral creative who has designed and taught around the World, from museums and art galleries to the White House, I'm so excited to invite you, wherever you are in your floral journey, to dive into our educational courses. I want to support, inspire and share my knowledge with absolutely everyone who wants to work in this industry, but I can only reach so many students in person.
That's why my team and I filmed our courses so we could learn together, wherever you are in the world. Our courses launch on 1st July, but in the meantime, we've curated a selection of resources which might be of use to you.
Happy designing!View Our Free Resources Source Tools & Supplies
Joseph has been fortunate enough to share his knowledge, insight, and floral techniques at the following cultural institutions across the world.
"Joseph is one of the most relevant designers working today. Not only is his work artful, utterly current, and widely admired, he is a knowledgable and gifted instructor. He has a thorough grip on the vital principles, art theory concepts, and techniques that underly his successful body of work- and the ability to clearly articulate these to his students. I’m thrilled that he will be able to share his knowledge more widely through online instruction."
"I’ve worked with Joseph on workshops and tours for several years, and I know from first hand experience that the hallmark of Joseph's work is sublime, innovative floral techniques - he has a real knack for finding the most commercial, subtle, and elegant way to do the job at hand - whilst consistently under-pining that technique with steadfast principle and element knowledge. I wholeheartedly recommend Joseph's classes - I know that they'll be invaluable to students of floral design time and time again. "
"I couldn’t be more thrilled that Joseph Massie is launching this online course! His passion for teaching is only surpassed by his love for flowers. Joe fully understands the need for floral education and has a fun and approachable way of communicating everything from mechanics to the foundation for true design. Joe’s techniques are rooted in traditional floristry while his vision for our industry demonstrates brilliant innovation. "

Absolutely - but not every course might be for you. For those just starting out on their floral journey, we recommend courses such as The Classic Hand Tied Bouquet, The Classic Centrepiece and The Classic Bridal Bouquet - all of which are geared to be enjoyed by flower lovers of all abilities.
We certainly hope not - although some courses are more advanced than others. If you're looking to stretch your skills, why not start with The Textured Vase, The Statement Urn or The Meadow Tablescape - all of which have a higher technical level for you to enjoy.
Each course contains a high quality video tutorial featuring Joseph personally showing you the steps required for each design. In addition to this, each course features additional supporting documents, including but not limited to : The Flower List, The Sundries List, The Step by Step Guide and The Floral Glossary, for fully comprehensive learning.
Once purchased you'll have lifetime access to our courses, meaning that you can work through them at your own pace, and revisit them time and time again. Our goal with our community is to create a place for continual professional development, and as such our courses are yours to revisit and explore time and time again.
Each course contains a minimum of a twenty minute video tutorial, plus additional supporting documents, including but not limited to : The Flower List, The Sundries List, The Step by Step Guide and The Floral Glossary. Our longest courses are over 45 minutes in length.
In each and every course we have an 'Ask A Question' feature, enabling you to directly ask questions to Joseph. Although the replies may not be same day, Joseph will answer all questions asked, and will be on hand to aid you with your progression through your course modules.
