Texture & Color a Modular Master Class by Frédéric Dupré
Texture & Color are Frédéric Dupré’s specialty. Frédéric Dupré is a Master Florist from France who has given multiple succesful Master Classes at the Boerma Instituut over the years.
During these Master Classes, texture and color are often touched upon. Frédéric Dupré believes that these subjects are so vital to our profession that they deserve their own Master Class.
Frédéric has developed an extensive theory for Texture & Color. So elaborate are these teachings that when he teaches about it in China and Taiwan, he dedicates 5 days on each subject.
During his 5 days on texture, he dedicates one day for each of the senses. Of course, doing an extensive 10 day program purely on Texture and Color would be amazing, but we understand not everyone can dedicate so much time.
This is why we’ve developed a modular Master Class together with Frédéric for students of the Boerma Instituut. We will dedicate 3 days in June purely on texture and 3 days in November purely on color.
It is possible to only join for the Texture Master Class and it is possible to join only for the Color Master Class. However, we offer both as a package deal as well.
The Texture Module will be from Tuesday June 11th to Thursday 13th. This program is dedicated to combining textures in a harmonious way.
All botanical materials and non botanical materials have a texture. Be it a tactile physical texture or just a visual texture. Not always are these two the same, but they can play an important role in the final look of your work. Using these textures to your advantage can really elevate your design. It plays a vital role in the maturity of your work.
Frédéric Dupré will teach you all about texture, according to his personal theory.
Frédéric believes strongly that texture is the first thing to approach when creating a design, not color.
He will explain about the categories of texture and how they relate to our materials. What they add to your design.
Of course, the golden rule will always play an important role during the design process and will be touched upon where necessary during this program.
Of course, how to apply the golden rule to texture in your design is a question that will be answered as well.
Zooming in on this subject will ensure that your floristry will level up in ways you may not have imagined before.
Frédéric Dupré on the program
“As far as I am concerned, the study of texture gave me the keys to open up possibilities to create unique designs, interesting combinations in commercial products. It allows me to use materials that few people use due to lack of knowledge and practice.
Finally to complete this unique seminar it can be combined with the color seminar which we will do in November. There I would obviously address the basics, but also the families of colors, associations and harmonies. How to associate and combine colors with a real method, for when you are a little lost in all these choices and options. We will work on color trends, but those who have followed the Texture Seminar, will be able to better understand the subtleties of color and combinations because once again, and I repeat myself it is Texture that gives a real definition to color.“
The Color Module will be from Wednesday November 5th until Friday November 7th. This module is dedicated to Color Theory and it’s application. Frédéric will teach you how to create all sorts of moods and emotions using colors. On the last day of this module, we are bringing together knowledge from the Texture module and connect them to one unified whole. Color is one of the most important things in floristry, it is the first thing one will notice when looking at a work and is a great way to create an emotional connection to the viewer.
Frédéric will teach you his own twist on the color theory and make it easily understandable. Allowing yourself to immerse in three days of pure color studies, will greatly ellevate your floristic skills as well.
You will gain a new sense of comfort and confidence after following either one of these modules, but doing both creates an amazing synergy that will greatly benefit anyone participating in this program.
