Learning Is An Experience

 

European Master Certification is an educational program, and, as accustomed, at the end of it, on graduation day, each student gets a diploma. There is an exam, that takes place at the end of the Advanced Class and of course, grading the performance of the students is require. Besides being a wonderful event, held at the 14th century beautiful building of the Town Hall in Bruge, besides the great Belgian beer they serve and all the fun that one can feel in the air, the graduation of EMC is not a destination in itself. 

At EMC we put the value more on the journey our students make, on the learning process, which never really ends on graduation day.

We constantly prepare ourselves to perform better, which is our goal, in the end: to make the best of what we do. Our clients...

New Ways to Learn Techniques

 

Floral design, as all other art forms, cannot exist without techniques. Literally speaking, they are the actions that transform any creative idea from a glimpse of imagination to a real life product that we can feel, touch, see and ultimately enjoy. 

Techniques are vital decision-making factors in the total design process. They enable us to actually transform an idea in reality. The quality of the final outcome depends substantially on the quality of our choices as designer.

By choosing the most suitable technique for the execution of the mechanics, the final result is substantially improved. The more technical knowledge you possess, your design possibilities become unlimited and this is mathematically proven, as there is a radical increase in the number of possible...

From Virtual To Real

 

 

EMC launches the first online Foundation Course

The first students of the first EMC On-line Foundation Course have just started their floral education with this new and innovative approach, called BLENDED LEARNING. We are all excited and thrilled to see this on-line experience become a reality!

The idea of having an on-line course was already on the EMC agenda before COVID, set as a project for later in the future. As many, we had to reinvent and re-calibrate the way we provide education, to adapt to the changes that occurred in the past months on a global level, severely impacting the local communities as well. Businesses working different, decisions you cannot control impacting you directly, changes occurring too fast, working with a completely...

EMC Coaching Team Meet Up in a Blended Interview

 

How did you grow through EMC/how did EMC help you grow?

I’ve learned so much since I started my EMC journey in fall 2017. The challenges and learning do not stop upon my graduation. Naturally, I take EMC as a continuum, lifelong learning experience just as I practice Ikebana artistry. With this mindset, I’ve discovered that there are endless new knowledge and skills to learn and share. The diversified EMC community allows me to meet peers from different countries and cultures.

The growth for me has been tremendous, and it continues today. It reignited my thirst for knowledge, which continues to push me to grow as a designer....

BLENDED LEARNING

 

We are each different, unique, grown in an organic way and this concept stands as a foundation on how the European Master Certification has built a learning process that, ultimately, empowers designers to find their own signature style. 

"Life is a constant process of instant creative decisions, and your decisions make up you who you are.  We are all born with an immense package of talents but it’s up to us to discover them and let them flourish. It helps to find people who are an accelerator in this process as mentors or teachers.  It’s up to the teacher to help to develop them for the student but for the common good as well.  We have to cultivate the capacities of creativity in our education.  Creativity all starts by creating our...
