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.
2nd NOVEMBER 2019 | The Ministry, London, SE1 1DN
This is no ordinary fair - Maid With Style London has created a bridal luncheon that's all about fun and unapologetic girly-ness! No stuffy tables and booths in sight, we promise. There will be stylish bridesmaid dresses and accessories to try on, bottomless prosecco to keep you going, and some of the coolest suppliers around showing off their skills - all under one roof for a lovely day of schmoozing, sipping, and shopping to your hearts’ content. I'll be on site offering wedding planning and styling consultations, and bringing to life decor and design inspiration in each room. It'll be the perfect opportunity to get your bride tribe together, before walking down the aisle with your best girls.
The showcase will be held at The Ministry, a new private members club in London - and each space will be transformed into the most inspiring, intimate, interactive, and achingly cool pop-up bridal boutique, not to be missed.
