Tutor Profile - Coming up roses for floristry tutor, Rebecca Tiller

Rebecca started her career as a professional caterer for the film and television industry. She was contracted to work out in the mountains of Haut-Savoie in France and upon her return to Cornwall, she purchased a shop that sold flowers.

This investment was life changing as Rebecca decided to pursue a short and intense training course in floristry in order to start up her own business, Floral lmaginarium. She quickly acknowledged the depth of knowledge that was required to be a great florist and subsequently embarked on a 6 year master florist training course. Rebecca is respected in the industry and her achievements include gaining a silver gilt and a bronze medal at the Royal Horticultural Society Chelsea Florist of the Year competition 2015 and 2016.

Natural and understated, Rebecca describes herself as a florist by day and a flower arranger by night.

Rebecca shared the importance of understanding working with an organic source. She said “When working with something organic you have to listen to it and work with it.” She orders her flowers directly from Holland.
