Tuesday, April 8 – Woodland Arrangements
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. We’ll discuss color, texture, form, ideas and techniques.
Wednesday, April 9 – Botanical Couture
We’ll explore different ideas for botanical purses as centerpieces and will discuss sourcing materials and the mechanics involved to create a wide variety of these unique designs. The afternoon session will focus on botanical headpieces.
