Workshops at the Flower&Garden Show in San Francisco March 19-23

The  5 day  Flower & Garden Show in San Francisco on March 19-23 promises to be a spectacular event where you will enjoy stunning show gardens and meet hundreds of vendors who offer garden related products. You’ll have the opportunity to attend a wide variety of seminars or sign up for hands-on workshops. All the information you could possibly want on edible gardens will be available and you will enjoy stunning California grown flowers everywhere! And there will be a very special place for kids as well.

I am so thrilled and excited to have been invited to teach two hands-on workshops and present a couple of seminars and  at the Flower & Garden Show. Here are the details:

Workshops by Francoise Weeks at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show

Workshop 1:
URBAN WOODLANDS WORKSHOP

Here you’ll begin to see your surroundings in a whole new light. A piece of bark, a log, driftwood, wooden disk, branches or rootballs can all become bases for the unique structures we will be creating. In this workshop you will create a beautiful arrangement using rich foliage, bark, berries, seedpods, twigs, mushrooms and herbs.

Put your inner fashionista on display! Lush and vibrant or simple and elegant, the elements used all add up to create a unique headpiece. After fashioning a basic form that can be bent or shaped, your creativity will be called upon to construct a stunning Spring accoutrement to your unique outfit.
