Welcome to the introduction to the workshops at La Dolce Vita 2020.
One aspect of La Dolce Vita which is eagerly anticipated by attendees are the days filled with creativity! Carolyn envisions a retreat where women of all skill levels enjoy flexing their creative muscles while learning, or improving, their working knowledge in a variety of different creative fields.
You don’t have to be a expert, dabbler, or even have ever tried a specific type of art to participate in the workshops. Part of the joy of La Dolce Vita is exploring creativity in a variety of mediums. While some of our attendees have included passionate creatives who own their own companies, studios, restaurants and culinary businesses, we have also welcomed many whose last art project was in elementary school!
From tablescapes and culinary creativity, to arts and crafts, La Dolce Vita meets you where you are and encourages you to enjoy exercising the creative part of your brain.
At La Dolce Vita 2020 there will be two featured workshops. The first will be led by that week’s special guest, the second is a surprise!
Because we are still many months out from our event, we are not yet ready to reveal the specific workshops. What we can tell you is that the class with our special guest will be in keeping with her personal design aesthetic.
La Dolce Vita will welcome a different special guest each week, so please be sure to take note if you would like to attend the workshop of a specific guest.
At this retreat our first creative workshop will be led by special guest Brooke Lark. As a working recipe developer, food stylist and photographer, Brooke has unique insight into what makes a great photo. During her workshop, Brook will share tips and tricks for getting/setting up great photos, using food as her medium. However, her tips will be easily transferable to other products, crafts, or household goods. You do NOT need a DSLR camera to participate and enjoy the class, in fact, we anticipate that most people will come equipped solely with their cell phone camera. If you do bring a DSLR, attendees are asked to have a basic working knowledge, as Brooke will not have the time to teach a beginner how to shoot manually in this class.
Retreat attendees may be asked to bring a basic set of supplies for the workshops. If so, they will be emailed the supply list in early spring 2020.
Here are a few snippets of Brook’s creative style:
