About myself

Chihiro HidakaI first fell in love with flowers while I was working at a Swiss firm. In 1991, I mastered basic floristry with Mrs. Rona Coleman of Flower Design of Britain, England. Upon returning to Japan, I started to teach in Tokyo. I continued to further my learning about floral design from the same flower school. I have developed my own styles in both teaching and designing over the years, although nowadays I enjoy contemporary floral designs in particular. For the past couple of years I have been trained by Mr. Geoffrey Hughes. My sincere thanks to him!

I enjoy teaching, love training my students, and would like to extend a welcome to all people who enjoy flowers. I am fond of natural designs and often bring materials from woods or a park nearby. I like fine wine, good food and enjoy walking and pirates.  I am able to provide classes in both Japanese and English!  So please feel free to get in touch with me info@act-flower.com

For example, flower names and species in English and Latin, colour theories, and designing and planning skills, among other aspects of floristry. Examination was performed by the British international judge, Mrs. Lynda Owen in 2007.
