If you are on instagram with any regularity you may have seen that I was in France in July for a photographic/video/flower workshop hosted by Flore Addison (she's on instagram as @the.flo.show) in her family's chateau (yep, her family's CHATEAU) in Burgundy. It was a total triumph. Ladies came from all over the world to learn from teachers Lean Timms, Xanthe Berekely, Meghan Faulker (and moi, I suppose, although I feel like a total douche for writing that). As workshops go, this one was a standout. The food, the venue, the opportunities to learn, the company ... it was like an Masters in Chasing Beauty condensed into five days.
If you have any interest photography (even as a complete beginner), or even more generally an interest in creating beauty, I highly recommend you keep your eyes peeled for the next workshop Flo hosts here. It probably won't be until next year, so in the meantime, I thought'd I give you a really comprehensive look at what we got up to. It will be broken up into several parts: the food, the gardens and barns, the flowers and table settings and the teachers. But first I wanted to start with a house tour of the chateau, which as you will see, is spectacular. Enjoy!
