ANDRUKOVA EKATERINA + FLORIST + BLOGER + TEACHER

Greetings.
My name is Ekaterina Andrukova.
About myself. I am a practicing florist and since 2011 I have been actively engaged in weddings and commercial floristry.


I was trained by a famous florist, the training was in a small group and lasted six months. The training included blocks on ikebana, on interior floristry, wedding and much more. I also have a higher pedagogical education.

In 2012, I created the MAMA ROSE Floristics and Decor Studio. At the moment, we have issued about 300 weddings, made 470 bouquets of the bride, as well as several dozen interiors (floristic design) of automobile salons, beauty salons and jewelry centers.

The first in Yekaterinburg introduced the service of floral accompaniment of guests at a wedding.

Have experience in designing both small chamber weddings and large international ones for more than 450 people.

Personally, I held about 180 workshops on various topics related to floristry, for various audiences.

I went to a wedding in Spain in September 2014, I also constantly collaborate with florists from the Czech Republic, where I periodically live.

Currently working in Europe and Russia.

Floristry School was born in 2013. Full-time education at school takes place twice a year (spring and autumn), the groups are small and at the moment we have about 120 graduates.

I will be glad to share my experience and knowledge with you, to help you start your floral career or to find your favorite hobby.

After completing all practical tasks

You will receive a diploma

The course includes printing 1 of the original diploma and sending it 1 time, by regular mail. We are faced with the fact that about 10% of letters do not reach the addressee, due to the fault of the mail. In such a situation, we can offer to send a second letter, but the recipient will bear the costs of sending. If you changed your surname (in the case of receiving the first original diploma) and want to remake the diploma, this is also possible with the resending of the letter at the expense of the recipient.
