Floristry students win top prize at Harrogate Flower Show!

Recently our talented final year Floristry students scooped the top prize at Harrogate Flower Show, winning a Gold award & the Best College Exhibit category! 

In the running against five other Colleges, the students created a stunning display around the theme ‘Masterpiece.’ Taking inspiration from Gustav Klimt’s iconic painting ‘The Kiss,’ the design reflects the richness of nature and the connection between humankind and the natural world. Working together using solely sustainable methods, the group arranged vibrant floral pieces to mirror the use of gold leaf in the original painting, varying angular and softer shapes embraced with each other, similar to the couple depicted by Klimt. 

We’d also like to extend our congratulations to Shipley College Floristry alumni Danial Spillane, who placed third in Class B1 zodiac bridal, creating a beautiful bridal piece representing a zodiac sign.

A massive well done to everyone involved - what a brilliant result!
