Taping and wiring are core competencies for a florist. This technical masterclass is designed to develop your taping technique, introduce a range of basic wiring techniques and offer methods to assemble wired elements.
You will start by learning about the 7-steps to developing excellence in your area of study, as well as how you can improve your productivity, work organisation and management in the hospitality and lifestyle sector.
Once you have completed these stages, work through a detailed demonstration of techniques for stem taping, wiring plant materials and forming units in a single binding point. The Masterclass then guides you to perform the tasks shown in the demonstration and offers a set of downloadable resources to assist you.
Suitable for level 3 (level 6 in Scotland) learners, this masterclass takes around 2 hours to complete. You are required to successfully answer a series of multiple choice questions at the end of your learning before being awarded a downloadable WorldSkills UK certificate.

identify the reasons why a florist uses stem tape
note the key differences in the qualities and use of each tape
apply tape evenly and consistently
analyse the standard of the finished wire
increase commercial speed without loss of quality of finish
