The Art of Food and Prop Styling with the Artful Desperado

LFSFoodPropStylingThe Artful Desperado returns to London Fields Shoppe this September with a new workshop, The Art of Food and Prop Styling! This was one of our most popular workshops last spring and we sold out so quickly that the second date filled before we could properly announce it! We listened to your feedback from the first class and slightly tweaked the course content to focus on styling, rather than photography. We extended the length of the session and decreased the number of students, so space is * very * limited.

Two dates available:
Saturday, September 12th or Saturday, September 19th, 2015
10:00 am to 2:30 pm
London Fields Shoppe – 692 East Hastings Street, Vancouver (BC)

Cost: $250.00 plus tax | max. 8 students

in the city :: food edition

I like to take pictures of my food. I’m not sure where this comes from. Maybe from my obsession with miniature fake food? Anyways, here is a glimpse of our meals the past few weeks. I have been on a mission to eat cleaner by including more fruit and veg and really, when it’s this pretty, why wouldn’t you eat more of that? I have also … {are you ready?} … been running * gasp *. I know. I am not a runner nor am I an early morning kind of person, but I just finished week 3 in the C25K program and nobody is more shocked than myself. Seriously.

own label by sainsbury

Usually, people snub their noses at no name or own label brands (Rob’s mom used to buy no name cereal and pour it into brand name boxes), but I am loving this collection of vintage Sainsbury‘s packaging. The new book, Sainsburys Design Studio, celebrates the shift when Peter Dixon joined their design studio and revotuionized their own line: simple, stripped down, creative, and completely different from what they had done before. Could you imagine if they brought these designs back? Pretty!
