Workshops with Crispina ffrench!

Workshops with Crispina ffrench!

Crispina ffrench hosts workshops through November on a variety of different textile topics. I had the pleasure of attending her first workshop: Flower Making! In this workshop, Crispina showed her students how to take bits of fabric and turn them into dazzling flower arrangements. Using a couple of different techniques, many different types of flowers can be created. One great thing about the workshop was the amount of your own creativity that you can put into making the flowers. Even Crispina is looking for new ways of creating flowers. The possibilities are really endless.
