With a background in teaching from both sides of my family and all aspects of my life, I am a huge believer in sharing knowledge and having fun whilst doing it. Our Flower School was created with that exact idea in mind; having fun.
I have been very privileged in my life to learn from some of the very best world wide and have experience in over 600 weddings over the past seven years. This experience has taught me that nothing is impossible and with passion, love and enjoyment, anything can be achieved. I would like to take a day to teach you all that I know, from basic flower arranging to world class hanging arrangements, floral arches, breathtaking flower walls and massive table arrangements that will not only impress but set you apart from others.
We are very proud to announce that the Zavion Kotze Flower School has partnered with Deetlefs Wine to bring you a wine tasting experience that is out of this world! Deetlefs continuously wins awards worldwide for their incredible wines and are the only wine estate in the world to create a white Pinotage MCC, which you will be able to experience at the Flower School. You do not want to miss out!
