About European Master Certification - EMC
What is EMC?
EMC is short for ‘EUROPEAN MASTER CERTIFICATION’.
European Master Certification (EMC) is an educational platform that exposes designers to the Infinite Creative Effect (ICE) with a driven, engaged, and passionate team.
Designers are introduced to new design styles, shapes, color combinations, techniques, materials, and creative ways of using those materials. The EMC program teaches its students to look at flowers closely to discover the differences in their personalities, emotions, and possibilities – and learn to use them at their full potential.
EMC will create a culture of engaging floral creatives to discover their own potential. As well as creating a community that is stimulated by the same ambition to grow and reach new heights within the floral industry worldwide.
WHY the INFINITE CREATIVE EFFECT (ICE)?
We believe ultimately, each of us, as designers are continually seeking and yearn for continual creative ideas and ambitions. This only comes from taking the knowledge that we are taught and implementing it to the "knowing" stage. Once this has been achieved, we allow ourselves to be changed and open to becoming a "consciously creative"--not seeking out the next trendy "trick or tip", as we discover there are infinite possibilities that surround us to create. Hence, our core program brings this to fruition for students graduating with the European Master Certification.
