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

Dominique Falla is a designer that works in a variety of tactile mediums such as chalk, paper, embroidery, thread, and push pins to name a few of the items she has used to create her work. Some of the images posted above are from the “I could do Anything” project where 22 collaborators wrote three pieces or sentences and illustrated them typographically.

Japanese artist Takashi Iwasaki’s creates art pieces based on the visualization of his imaginary worlds and landscapes. Although each piece looks like they have been painted, it is actually embroidery.

“Those recent works may appear to be abstract on the surface, however, most shapes and colors have meanings and origins that are very significant to me in the way I feel them, therefore they are very representational and are reflection of my state of mind.”

In her work “From Scratch“, artist Judith G. Klausner turns everyday food items into amazing works of art. Did you guess that those cameos above are made of oreo cookies?

She says that, “Like the production of food, a variety of handicrafts were a mundane requirement of the female gender. Sewing, embroidery, and knitting have enjoyed resurgences, sometimes even within the realm of fine art… My latest series (now in progress) uses Victorian handicraft processes to transform modern packaged foods, exploring how the intertwined histories of gender and craft have shaped one another and our everyday lives.”
