Raffles International Floristry Academy (RiFA) is a full time flower arrangement and floral design school created to nurture interested individuals with a passion for floristry into kindred spirits and professionals with a profound understanding of the blooms they craft with. Thus the instructors and trainers at the academy guide their students to develop their knowledge and concept of the flowers, buds and leaves, by enabling and empowering them to create masterpieces of their own by emulating and not copying.
A thing of beauty, it has been said, is a joy forever. The natural beauty of a flower can neither be replicated not compared; it can certainly be enhanced by a thoughtful elegant flower arrangement, skillfully sculptured by a pair of deft hands. It takes intimate knowledge which blossoms from a wealth of fertile experience for one to cultivate such a pair of skillful hands. Thus it is with this budding passion that the concept for RIFA was planted."
