Teaching workshops are one of my favorite things. Not only do I get to share about my craft and empower others to start their own creative journey, I get to partner with my talented friends and collaborate on hosting a beautiful event.
In styling this event, we wanted to go for a seasonal fall look without using pumpkins. We opted to challenge ourselves to explore what the tablescape could look like without being so literal and predictable. Instead we went for some foraged eucalyptus, and for color, we used pomegranates and persimmons which are in peak season. The mini San Pelegrino bottles were on sale and served as a cute personal treat for each guest.
As usual, Erika Elianté of Cupcakes for the Kingdom, provided us with the most delicious cupcakes. On the menu for this workshop was blackberry cake with cinnamon buttercream. They were as tasty as they were stunning and were even gluten free and refined sugar free! I don't know how she does it!
Every guest at the workshop received a nib, pen holder, custom made ink well made by my husband, which I then dressed in some copper leaf, a lettering guide, resource guide and a notebook. One of my favorite parts of each workshop is doing a demonstration and sharing all my tips and secrets, then watching each person give it a go themselves.
Grace Aston captured our workshop beautifully in film as well as digitally. The slightly antique feel of the film photos goes perfectly with the Floranthropist Market, don't you think?
I'm so grateful I get to do what I do. I'm even more grateful for the people who champion me and help make these workshops a success as I surely couldn't do it alone!
