We have a few very clever friends out there and this year we are teaming up to handcraft some workshops and events that will really be something super special and this is one of those occasions. Our summer retreat will focus on wild foods and photography and we are absolutely ecstatic to be working with the amazingly talented photographer (and very lovely) Marte Marie Forsberg with Swedish baker extraordinaire, from the blog 'Call me a cupcake' Linda Lomelino as our guest teacher.
If you haven't yet heard of Marie, it's about time you did! By her own definition she is a visual storyteller and home cook with a passion for food and travel, and isn't she just. Have a goose at her site which shows off her super talents and will give you an insight into her style and approach to food photography.
During the retreat we will gather at a stunning secluded beach hideaway that we will call home for a few idyllic days to explore a diverse environment of sandy shoreline, heavenly heathland and harbour within toe-dipping distance. We will guide you through our wonderful patch of wild, showing you everything this idyllic spot has to offer.
Each day will have sections both outside and inside our lovely home away from home during our stay, depending on the weather, with Marie by your side to guide you through capturing those magic moments.
Evenings will be spent around the fireplace, with open doors to the garden and the sea beyond, with discussions on photography, branding, cookbook writing, photography, social media, foraging, cooking and post processing of images with Lightroom. And each evening will be rounded off with a candlelit dinner prepared with seasonal local produce, in collaboration between us and the very clever Heather Whitehead, from the Wonky cake co, who´s been cooking and baking delicious food and cakes for all of Marie's retreats this year.
If you are as excited as us by this (not sure that's possible) there are a few price options from £1300 - £1600 per person, please take a hop, skip and jump right on over to Marie's booking page where you can bag yourself a slot to join what is sure to be a very wonderful weekend indeed.
