I did a one-day PC course in Nov. I had to beg, borrow and steal to get the funds together, but it was SOOO worth it. I'd do another one tomorrow if I had the money. I posted some pics in my photos of the cake in progress.
I also did an 8-week night class at a local adult ed centre on flowers. Like Bel_Anne, I now don't think my instructor was all that good, but I did learn a lot of the basic techniques. And $200 for 16hrs tuition isn't bad!
Bel_Anne, I'm so so envious of you doing the week-long course. I'd think about selling my firstborn to do that!! hahaha
