Françoise Weeks 2 Day Spring Awakening Workshop 

Tuesday May 10 and Wednesday May 11 9-4 

Location:  West Queen Studio

Price: $1,365.00


Awaken your creative spirit with Françoise Weeks at West Queen Studio.  Learn how to look at botanicals in a new and layered way.  Our Sold Out Fall Françoise workshop was such a delight we are thrilled to host this amazing human and floral giant  for a Spring 2 day floral retreat at West Queen Studio centered around foraged textures and layered botanicals for structures, purses and tabletop designs.  


Françoise Weeks, born in Belgium, has infused her work with a quintessential European reverence for flowers and nature. Combined with creativity and mechanical ingenuity, she has crystalized her singular style of Textural Woodlands and Botanical Haute Couture pieces, garnering a global following.  Françoise’s studio is located in Portland, Oregon. Her innovation and love of teaching have brought her to the Flower School Cohim in China, the Academy of Floral Art in Exeter, England, studios in Australia and Mexico, workshops at Mayesh and Florabundance and  West Queen Studio in Historic Hillsborough, NC.


Her generosity of knowledge and perspective in use of floral materials, structure and mechanics, in addition to the business of being a florist, unite to create rigorous and exciting learning opportunities for her students to explore all that nature has to offer.   This class is appropriate for hobbyists looking to learn more about botanical floral art or the professional looking to expand their skill set and create portfolio pieces.  West Queen Studio founder Morgan Howell Moylan will be available to assist those with less experience and class size will be small so everyone will get great one on one with Francoise.


For this hands on two day course participants will create foraged wall frames, spring centerpieces  and tabletop designs with a Françoise twist.    Finished pieces will be photographed by professional photographerfor participants’ personal use or to add to their professional portfolio. Workshop includes lunch daily,  Tuesday night dinner and all materials and tools.  



To enhance these incredible two days we are partnering with the newly opened Colonial Inn of Hillsborough.   The Colonial Inn is a two block stroll from West Queen Studio and the newly renovated  rooms are truly heavenly. Prior to booking please email us for the discounted workshop rate code.
