It's both a practicum that will offer hands on photography & styling instruction from Beth and Skye as well as an inspirational travel & culinary 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 original 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 from acclaimed chef Aaron Teece and finding plenty of time to explore the quiet winter corridors, markets, islands, & canals of Venice far from any throngs of tourists. 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.
As an encore of last year's retreat at the Palazzo, this year we'll be adding a very special boat trip to the island of Burano followed by a masked cocktail soiree at the palazzo...bring your party dress!
