Woodland Workshop on July 15, 16 & 17

Jamie Bosworth Photographer

Explore the many possibilities the woodlands have to offer and be inspired by the botanical treasures of the Pacific Northwest! Françoise’s absolute love for this style of arrangement stems from her time spent as a child in Switzerland. Foraging for a piece of wood or bark and moss and adding some wildflowers, she would make arrangements for her Mother while on summer hikes with her family in the Alps. Her woodland fairy creations have since bloomed into unique centerpieces and bouquets using the foliage of the Northwest as her muse. Detail is paramount in these layered, intricate creations. Gather ideas to express your creativity and learn to work with woodland materials found in nature!

Woodland Workshops are intensive and inspiring, providing insights and techniques developed over many years of European floral design. Classes begin with a lecture and presentation, where your input and questions are welcomed.

After a demonstration of floral techniques and mechanics, you will design your own pieces. You will hone your artistic talents, and will be encouraged to listen to your intuition and further your own vision. Classes are limited to five students to ensure valuable individual attention.

Dates: Monday July 15, Tuesday July 16, Wednesday July 17

Time: 9am til 4pm (1 hour lunch break)

Where: At Françoise’s Studio

Cost: $1,300 – A 50% deposit is requested to reserve your space; the balance is due July 1.

Here is a testimonial of Alicia Schwede, owner  of Bella Fiori and  editor of the Flirty Fleurs blog:

"Taking a class with Françoise was just what I needed to add a new dimension to my floral designing style. Françoise helped me to see greenery and textures in a new light and how each little piece adds such an interesting dimension to my flower arrangements. I highly recommend taking a class with Françoise to anyone who is looking for some new perspective to their designing ways."
