Palm Beach pastimes…

Recipe for a Superb Design Workshop:

Take one beautiful place = Palm Beach.

With lots of beautiful flowers..

Add a delightful, talented, outstanding teacher = Bruno Duarte from  Toronto Canada.  Check out his website:

In a spacious classroom = The Colony Hotel

An industrious committee analyzing it all….

Everyone worked hard on these structures made from pussy willow, coiled and wired.  The black vases are actually clear glass, lined with stunning black ti leaves.

Bruno’s first design was a stunning orb woven thickly with steel grass resting on a cradle of willow sticks.  WOW-zers quite a presence in front of the orange wall.

The linear swoops and swirls of the curly willow frame a flower filled center.

Orchids were everywhere, including welcoming us to the Breakers.
