Christine Rose Elle, Designer and Instructor
Workshop Fee: $65.00 (or $115 for two classes; French Florettes and Manon Dore Nest)

Inspired by Shakespeare's Spring song from Love's Labors Lost

"Daisies bloom and violets blue
Lady Slippers
all silver white
Blooming buds of yellow hue
Paint meadows with delight.

Maidens dance in ribboned ring
Blooms of every tree
Hearing gentle robin sing
Spring is here sings he."

Create this lovely mixed media composition centered around the art of French beaded florettes. The traditional art of wired beaded florals originated in France, and is transformed here under the artful hands of Christine Rose Elle of Dollybelle Atelier into this charming tableau.
