Join photographer & stylist Beth Kirby of Local Milk and stylist Ginny Branch Stelling for a workshop-retreat hosted by Skye McAlpine of From My Dining Table. Set in the still mist of a Venice winter, this is a retreat designed to be more than a workshop.

It's both a practicum that will offer hands on photography & styling instruction from Beth and Ginny as well as an inspirational experience that will engage all five senses and allow you to think about sense perception, food, & visual story telling in a new way.

The workshop will take place in a Renaissance palazzo looking on to the Grand Canal . Each room possesses a faded grandeur, cavernous ceilings, and frescoed walls that have witnessed centuries pass in silence. The space itself is a wholly unique experience--all at once otherworldly, cozy, and grand. 

What's the perfume of an Italian winter? What does the secret life of an oyster sound like on the piano? What does a 17th century oil painting taste like? What color is parting with a lover on a train platform? These are the sorts of questions we'll ask ourselves to explore the idea of metaphorical synesthesia as a means to enhance our perception of interconnection, engage the imagination, and invigorate creativity all while enjoying homemade, local food and finding plenty of time to explore the quiet winter corridors & canals of Venice far from any throngs of tourists with Skye, our local partner. This workshop will be a place where the high & humble meet, as much about cioccolata calda as art, and it will be an immersive experience down to the detail. 

During our time together, Ginny Branch & Beth Kirby will be teaching both food & still life styling practicums as well as hands on photography & post-processing sessions.
