As many of you know, this year was the first year of workshops here at La Fortezza. What can I say? It was incredible. We had so many amazing dinners on the terrace, drank lots of chilled white wine from our vineyard, enjoyed signature cocktails like Aperol Spritz and Paper Airplanes. We shared, created and mainly made a bunch of amazing new friends.
All of our guests enjoyed time at my dear freinds’ B&B La Concia, and bonded, laughed and gained a new set of styling and photography skills along the way. I was so grateful to those who attended our first workshops here. They were all so terrific about the scaffolding and the unfinished walkway and the construction crew. It was fun to see some of my past attendees make the trip, too.
Thank you to our instructors and photographers that helped out and to the fantastic chefs that will be back with us next season. Thanks to our amazing concierge and all around Italian spirit animal, Forrest, a fixer like no other. I could not have done it without my new troupe of gals that helped with finding foodie destinations and taught me about the unique products and culture here in the Lunigiana. I feel blessed to have these special friends and helpers.
Okay, NOW for the summer 2018 workshop line up:
1 one on one with me – you will spend time with me honing your skills, learning about the business of styling and production. So if you want to hang with me in Italy, this one’s for you!
1 wedding events and photography workshop – we will delve into the creative and business side of wedding photography and event planning. This will include florals and decor so what can I say it’s going to be AMAZING
1 figurative photography workshop – with an amazing figurative fine art photographer, we will be shooting all over the grounds and inside La Fortezza with stunning models from all over the world. If nude photography interests you, then this is the one for you.
Last but not least, we will be repeating the strictly styling workshop. It was wildly popular, and we think it is something worth repeating. 9 spots this time so we can fit more folks in, so if you were on the waiting list this year, most likely we will have a spot for you.
We will be finishing our renovation this winter, so our demo kitchen will be ready for all sorts of cooking classes and styling demonstrations. We will also have all of our guest rooms appointed, so you will be staying here on the La Fortezza compound with us. We will have some incredible excursions planned, and of course you will be eating local and delicious fare as always.
Email me with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org and head to the workshop website and sign up for the mailing list to receive early notification, so you’re first in line.
See you next summer xx
