6th AUGUST 2019 | HEREFORDSHIRE, UK
This one day editorial workshop co-hosted in collaboration with Twisted Sisters is all about flowers, humans, and the line between - a one day storytelling and floral installation workshop centered around creativity. We'll be talking about the basic principles of styling and how to look at a space in terms of lines and light. We will explore dereliction, wilderness, and how to balance natural and man-made - how to embrace the cycle of life and let the forces of time inspire our designs. We will bring to life thought experiments, play with surrealism, and unlearn how to tell a story. The concept at the heart of the workshop is finding the line where beauty fades, where the past becomes present, where abandoned becomes tamed, and where broken becomes new. We’ll be peeling back the layers of the colour wheel to greys and neutrals, and laying bare the beauty of the unpolished.
Melissa and Debbie from Twisted Sisters will provide the location - a unique dilapidated WWII Nissan Hut! Masses of freshly cut and conditioned British flowers and foliage, grown at their farm, will be on hand to incorporate into the large scale group installation, bringing colour and life back into the space - using the building's many hanging points, fissures, and crevices. Additional aids, props and furniture will also be available to help you get creative.
Aimed at anyone with an interest in floral design, event planning, and styling - whether you’re a beginner wanting to push your boundaries or you’re an established florist, designer or planner looking to experience something different, or simply looking for a day away to get your creative juices flowing.
There are limited places available, as we want every attendee to have a fulfilling, bespoke experience. You can find out more & register your interest here.

This videography retreat organised by Julie at My Secret Italy is all about learning, supporting one another, and making some magic on Italy's Southern shores. I'll be styling and leading two styled shoots throughout the week, dotted between seminars lead by a fantastic line-up of wedding professionals, genuine networking opportunities, and Prosecco under the stars.
Whether you're looking to participate in shoots so you can promote yourself as a destination videographer, a photographer looking to move into videography, a creative looking to know more about branding your business to your ideal client and partnering with wedding blogs, or a wedding professional who is excited about networking with Italian planners - or all of the above - this is for you.
