Botanical Couture Workshop in Napa

Last spring, when Barbara Colvin attended a wedding workshop hosted by Brannan Street in San Francisco, she invited me to teach a 2 day botanical couture workshop at her gorgeous property in the wine country.

After buying an incredible selection of seasonal flowers and textures at the Flower Mart we arrived at her beautiful home in the wine country and started to prep and set up for the classes in her spacious barn. Barbara was the most generous hostess and she spoiled all of us with delicious lunches. I have so much appreciation for her generous spirit and for the opportunity to share a lot of mechanics, as well as how to look at botanical materials through different eyes, with her friends. It was a delight to observe them all create gorgeous botanical jewelry, purses, shoes and headpieces.

Elisa Cicinelli  documented the atmosphere of the workshop and the exquisite designs in a magical way. Merci!

And as always I very much appreciated the generous  sponsorship from oasis.

Special thanks to Mindy Rosenberg  for all your delightful help.
