The French Experience

Every year, Heather and her talented team host a week-long Styling & Photography Workshop for Creatives in Dordogne, France. Guests stay in a private 13th century château amidst historic vineyards, reserved exclusively for the group. While being fully immersed in French culture, attendees will not only learn the art and craft of styling and discover essential photography techniques, they'll also gain confidence as they work to refine their vision and purpose for their own body of work. 

Lectures, hands-on sessions, and styling assignments are complimented by an array of unforgettable experiences: gathering props and antiques at an annual French brocante, admiring the beauty of an 11th century UNESCO World Hertitage village, wandering through an authentic open-air food market, and enjoying homemade meals prepared by our own private chef. To celebrate, Heather also plans an extraordinary Dîner en Blanc Fête!

You'll leave feeling equipped and inspired to apply your newfound skills in your own creative work. The day also includes morning coffee & pastries, delicious catered lunch, and workshop notes.
