Three Day Intensive Look Inside Floral Design

“Extraordinary source of inspiration” is how Françoise Weeks is often described by floral designers who have studied with her. Françoise is a passionate artist and a generous mentor who delights in enlightening others.

Floral designers who wish to explore and expand on their creativity pursuits will benefit greatly by studying with Françoise. Her signature woodlands and botanical couture styles will introduce a new way of looking at materials, both fresh and hard-goods, to every designer. In each of the workshops the mechanics behind the scenes will be discussed and practiced in depth, as Françoise is known for building strong & sturdy foundations to her floral designs.

Françoise has a vast set of techniques, mechanics, and secrets to teach, but encourages you to pursue your own ideas when inspiration strikes. She works through projects with you, and assists with the intricate mechanics so that you can focus your time and efforts on exploring designs and creating multiple pieces.

Françoise’s studio is located in the inner Southeast of Portland, Oregon, less than 10 miles from the Portland International Airport. The Richmond neighborhood is quiet and bustling all at once — home to local retail shops, cafes and restaurants, a grocery store and anything else you could ask for! It’s a skip and a jump from downtown, with access to public transportation, and a few hours drive from Oregon’s scenic wonders — the beautiful Northwest Coast, Multonomah Falls and breathtaking Mt. Hood, to name a few. We’ve compiled a list of Bed and Breakfasts in the area that will offer a good night’s rest as well as a sweet retreat while you’re visiting the Rose City.
