Meet Me at a Food Styling & Photography Workshop (in a castle! eep!)

I’m so excited to tell you about a lovely food styling and photography workshop to be held this summer in Germany in a nearby castle (romantic, right?) that I’ll be guest teaching at! The talented ladies running the class, Lisa Nieschlag, Julia Cawley and Meeta K. Wolff, have invited me to guest speak for a morning and to work with students throughout the day as they go about their styling and photography exercises. This will be such a lovely, intimate workshop and I can’t wait to take part. You can learn more about the workshop here and here.

Food Styling Workshop I'm guest teaching at this summer in Germany

I’ll be covering the following topics on Saturday morning for 2 hours:

* My Story:
Tips & tricks on building a meaningful career doing what you love
* Interior Styling: Going beyond the plate
* Staying On Top: Trends in cookbooks and food photography & styling
* Networking Online: Creating creative and meaningful blog content
* Q&A Session: Ask me, ask me, ask me! Anything and everything!

Food Styling Workshop I'm guest teaching at this summer in Germany

Please bring your notebook for my session because I’ll give you loads to think about that you’ll want to jot down. You’ll walk away from this workshop energized and ready to style, take photos and use all of the tools that these lovely ladies have laid out for you as they have so much to teach you and offer – I can’t wait to hang out with them and all of you for the weekend (I’ll be there Friday and Saturday but only teaching Saturday morning and playing the big sister role throughout the day in case anyone needs help) as we all learn and grow together in an inspiring setting. So exciting!

NOTE: They just opened up 4 extra spaces for decor8 readers if any of you would like to join us so if you are interested please register as soon as possible as spots are being offered on a first come, first serve basis only.

Hopefully I’ll be meeting you at the castle in July! xo

Thank you Lisa, Julia and Meeta for including me!

    Looks like fun! Too bad I’ll be in the US then…any chance you’ll be coming to The Hive in Berlin this month?

    Weimar is a lovely little university/cultural town with lots of gorgeous Jugenstil, Art Deco/Jazz Age types of architecture. It also kicks off the Bauhaus trail and has a small Bauhaus museum. We like stopping for a break here when we drive east. Definitely make time to walk around town if you can!

    Hi Holly, wow this course sounds fantastic, wish I could attend. I just wanted to say how much I enjoy reading your blog and thoroughly miss you when you are busy working on other projects. I am definitely inspired to print out some of my instagram pictures, love the mini matte cards.

    When will the blogging course be starting? I signed up for a previous course but then had a lot going on at home and work and just wasn’t in the right place to do it but am really keen to really throw myself into it this time. I have six weeks left on my maternity leave so am hoping it might start before I go back to my teaching job. I have also convinced my mum to start a blog and she is going to sign up to your course too.

    Thanks again for the daily doses of inspiration

    I so need a workshop like this – my food photography is awful! Unfortunately, Germany is a tad distant for me. I’m sure that this will be wonderful!

    @Juliette – I wasn’t invited to the Hive or even told about it – I just found out last week. Such a shame, I would have LOVED to be a part of that.

    Can I tell you that I am obsessed with tabletop photography? And that you are such an incredible source for photographers that I have not yet seen?

    Like with interiors, European tabletop photographers have such a fresh and different take on things.

    And wish I could be there for the class! BYW 1.5 will have to suffice…

    Hi Holly,
    thank you for such wonderful news. If I knew it in advance (bad me! Always delayed) I would have loved to join because I was looking forward such a course. I am really hoping they are going to make it again because I would join surely :)

    “…in a nearby castle.” I wish that happened in the states. There are some beautiful old homes, but not enough castles :)
