Tuesday, October 29 – Sculptural Beginnings

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, October 30 – Botanical Couture

We’ll explore different ideas for botanical purses as centerpieces or in bridal arrangements and will discuss sourcing materials and the mechanics involved to create a wide variety of these unique designs. In the afternoon we’ll make flower rings and other botanical jewelry.
