Françoise Weeks is certainly no stranger to Botanical Brouhaha! I love to have her drop by occasionally to update us on her latest projects. I’m sure you’ve seen her textural Woodland and Botanical Couture designs over the years. She has traveled the world extensively to teach and inspire so many fantastic florists. If you have not had the opportunity to attend one of her workshops, then I have great news! Françoise just launched a new series of online classes! And, I have even better news – we’re giving the full online course, a total of four classes, away to one of you!
The first series of videos introduced in the Françoise Weeks European Floral Courses focuses on Botanical Couture Jewelry. Françoise teaches you the concepts, mechanics and artistry involved in the creation of wearable rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. She discusses the tools and materials needed and walks you through the entire process, sharing her extensive knowledge along the way. From her Portland, Oregon garden studio, lined with flowers, tropical houseplants, foraged seedpods and bark, Françoise shows you how to deconstruct these floral materials to produce shapes and textures that rival gems and metals. You will begin to see the jewel-like qualities in flora all around you.
Françoise is such a gentle, genuine and generous floral artist and this comes through in her new videos. It’s a joy to spend this time with her, notebook and materials in hand, creating wearable treasures.
