Our New Level 1 balloon and business basics course now ensures tips, techniques, calculations and job costing are fully covered, alongside principles and elements of designs, basic marketing, bouquets, garlands and arches – and now includes a fabulous glossy, colour manual packed full of information.

Level 2 is in development and will bring the classic techniques into the 20’s, but is still able to be taught in its current format.
