Feeling lucky? You might just find yourself spending 3 days with Françoise in her private Portland, Oregon studio learning her wedding floral design techniques! Françoise is gifting a seat in her Wedding Design Workshop on June 5-7, 2017 to the winner of a drawing scheduled for this Friday right here on Botanical Brouhaha.

The workshop will be limited to 5 students to ensure an intimate atmosphere conducive to asking questions and learning techniques under Françoise’s guidance. Content is geared for all abilities and the focus will be on stretching yourself to be open to new ways of thinking about botanical materials. Workshop topics will include:

Day 1: Reception Flowers

What all is involved in consultations, proposals and contracts? Françoise leads a lively discussion that begins day one. Following this she demonstrates many techniques and mechanics and shows a variety of ideas on design elements for the reception – centerpieces, arrangements for buffets and mantles and cake decorations. You will get a chance to interpret these ideas and create 2 centerpieces, choosing from a plethora of seasonal flowers and textures.

    As a Floral Design Instructor at the College in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada over 24 years, I still enjoying share my passion with my students and fellow designers. I thought there’s no perfectionist, we all need to keep on learning. Life is a classroom, we are both students and teachers. “New ideas need audiences like flowers and bees. No matter how bright and colorful, they will die unless others work to spread them.~ Simon Sinek. I hope I can have this opportunity to get inspiration from Francoise and spread them through my teaching journey.❤
