In this workshop you will learn the mechanics behind creating textural and detailed designs that will expand the way you think about flowers. We will discuss and design personal flowers, unique centerpieces and ceremony arrangements. This workshop offers practical, hands-on experience that will further develop your own skills and increase your confidence to explore outside the box. After a demonstration of techniques and mechanics, you will design your own pieces.
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.

Testimonial from a student:

I never imagined a teacher could be such an extraordinary source of inspiration.  Françoise Weeks generously shares her years of floral expertise with students while enlightening them about her signature woodlands and botanical couture styles that she has become famous for.  To study with her is a gift from the floral master herself.  Run, don’t walk, to sign up for one of Françoise’s classes. This hands-on adventure will be one of the most inspirational and energizing floral experiences you will ever have!
