Françoise is an incredibly inspiring designer and teacher. And taking her seminar was such an eye-opening experience. I appreciated the small sized class and her attention to each one of us and how she customized the class to meet the different level of expertise, experience, and interest of each one of us. She was very patient with our questions and demands (Yes! We asked for countless demonstrations) and more than willingly shared her knowledge of materials, the mechanics of different designs, and the business side of the floral design industry. Watching her choose materials that I had never thought of using before and how she uses them as a whole or as pieces was definitely enthralling and inspiring. I can’t wait to implement what I learned there in my next design.

Not only was it a great opportunity to learn, it was also a great spiritual retreat with a lot of encouragement and support from Françoise and fellow designers who took the seminar together. I can’t recommend her workshops highly enough to any floral design enthusiasts out there.
