FLORAL + PHOTOGRAPHY + STYLING
Wednesday April 22 , 2020
9 am - 5 pm
Join us at The Costume House (165 Geary Ave 2nd Floor, Unit A). Hone in on your craft and learn from professionals with years of experience to enhance your floral design abilities and learn the art of photographing and styling flowers.
In this workshop you will learn how to photograph your flowers from a new perspective, create an artful floral composition using the best the season has to offer and style a table as if it were for a wedding or event. You will get to choose from a selection of styling elements to add to your pre-set table including an array of candles and candle holders, botanical elements, fruit as well as antique and vintage props. Each student will have their tablescapes photographed and the gallery will be emailed for use in their professional portfolios. Students will also get to take their floral creations home.
