The workshop is focused on expanding your floral skills and creating new designs. There will be a strong emphasis on the commercial and saleable value of the designs. After a demonstration of techniques and mechanics, you will design your own pieces.

This is a workshop for all abilities and the focus will be on stretching yourself to be open to new ways of thinking about botanical materials.

Tuesday, March 8 – Woodland Arrangements

In this class you will learn the mechanics behind creating textural and detailed designs.
For Françoise, the Woodlands sprouted from a childhood memory that took a life of its own. Using foliage, bark, berries, seedpods, twigs, mushrooms, herbs and some flowers, we’ll explore how to make woodland bouquets as well as centerpieces. You will hone your artistic talents and will be encouraged to listen to your own intuition and further your own vision.
