Opened in 1995, Chersea Flowers is a well-established preserved flower school, and the first of its kind in Japan to offer preserved flower arranging lessons. Serving as a gateway into the industry, the school has trained more than 4000 professional preserved flower arrangers. These graduates are active throughout Asia, creating a preserved flower boom.
In 2000, the school helped establish the Japan Preserved Flower Association (JPFA), Japan’s largest preserved flower organization. Chersea Flowers serves to develop preserved flower education as one of the association’s head schools which looks over 200 flower schools throughout Japan.
Our English-speaking instructors provide lessons to students of all levels, from hobbyists to those seeking to go professional. Special one day lessons are also available. The school operates on a flextime system which allows a student to schedule lessons at times that are convenient.
Graduates of Chersea Flowers are active in various fields throughout Japan. As expected, many have opened their own schools, or teach at cultural schools, or have even gone on to teach a preserved flower course at a well-known women’s university. Others sell large quantities of preserved flower products at leading department stores, or even through their own independent websites at the rate of hundreds of flowers per day. In addition, there are graduates who win prizes each year by entering various preserved flower contests sponsored by JPFA, leading flower arrangement materials manufacturers, and other organizations.
Chersea Flowers boasts a 16 year track record of training large numbers of students who have graduated and are now active in the preserved flower industry throughout Japan. Through a curriculum that incorporates materials used for flower arranging, the individuality of each student is brought out, talent is refined, skills improved on a daily basis, and advanced flower design abilities fostered. Instruction is carried out by teachers conversant in English, making Chersea Flowers an English-speaker-friendly environment. From the time students enter to the time they graduate, our school offers a complete support system which means we are there every step of the way during the training process.
