"I have worked at Shipley College since 2012, starting as a floristry technician and progressing to floristry tutor. I have a passion for flowers, foliage and creating visual displays, all very useful in my teaching and whilst working in the industry as a local florist. I enjoy meeting new people and sharing my skills, knowledge and creativity with others on the Floristry courses at the College.”

- Kathy Waite, Floristry Tutor
