Floral Design Master Class Series with Françoise Weeks
October 15: Workshop 1
Botanical materials have all the sparkle, movement and gesture of gems and metals. Learn to innovate jewelry design using aluminum wire as a base for rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Piece together the tiny and often overlooked bits of texture occurring in seed pods, tendrils, succulents, herbs and tropical greenhouse favorites and learn the magic of deconstructing botanical materials to create these detailed botanical jewels. (Optional: register for this workshop only.)
October 22: Workshop 2
Memories of vacations foraging in the Swiss Alps led Françoise to innovate her trademark Woodland Texture design. Her home base in the Pacific Northwest provides ample inspiration and material for creative botanical sculpture.
Françoise will share her passion for keenly observing nature along with deeply honed architectural skills in her popular Woodland Texture Workshop. You will learn how to see, source, scale and shape natural works of art. Françoise will impart the detail that goes into utilizing logs, barks, branches, mosses, mushrooms, seed pods and berries in rich and textural compositions. Tools to find your own vision and local bounty will be emphasized. (Optional: register for this workshop only.)
October 29: Workshop 3
From Edible to Incredible
Designing with fruits and veggies has been another favorite for Francoise Weeks. Artichokes, eggplants, pineapples, pumpkins, peppers, apples, pears,... make the best containers. Filling glass vases with small fruits and veggies, also create eye-catching vessels. Learn how to use this plethora of options to decorate your dining room table. The options are endless!
