Testimonial from a student:

I signed up for the Wedding Design Workshop with Françoise in an effort to take my flower growing operation to the next level, and move into providing floral design services in addition to bulk flowers for weddings.  What impressed me the most about the class was Françoise’ ability to meet each student at their level of expertise and development and intuitively guide them to move beyond their comfort level into new territory.   She was so patient with all of our questions, and moved easily between a nitty-gritty discussion of the business side of wedding design into the more creative aspects, customizing her demonstrations and discussions to our specific interests.   It is impossible to take a workshop with Françoise and not come away with an entirely new way of looking at florals and botanicals, and especially TEXTURE!  Watching her process of choosing materials and using them both as whole plants, but also smaller pieces or parts of blooms and botanicals, is a eye opener.  You will never look at kale the same way again!   Her humor and warmth make the class an absolute pleasure, and I hope to be able to take more in the future.  Thanks so much!
