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

London Fields Shoppe :: Workshops!


We’re starting to roll out our Fall / Winter workshop schedule! I’ll be sharing more details about each course on the blog in the coming weeks. Many of these sessions sold out super quick during our last offering, so I recommend that you grab a seat now to avoid any disappointment. We’re still working on a few new weeknight events as well, so stay tuned!
