I’m still catching up on all the house and yard work I missed out on while I was gone, but just wanted to pop in and let you guys know that there’s only 3 spaces left for my New Mexico food photography & textiles workshop, and they’re going quickly! It is in Taos, New Mexico, where Carey and I will be teaching food photography, the business side of the creative industry, and styling. Maggie Pate from Nåde Studio will be teaching us how to make our own natural dyes (indigo specifically) and how to weave on our own small looms, which you’ll get as a part of the welcome package (plus lots of other goodies!) We’ll have gloves to keep your hands clean during the dying process if you want them, but there is something to be said about the beauty of those intensely blue palms and fingertips! I have the schedule of the workshop below for you to peek at, we’ll also be staying in an amazing old adobe hacienda whose original walls date back to the late 1700’s. Every room has a fireplace, and the beautiful adobe and stone structure mixed with the vibrant red and orange hills surrounding the home will make the perrrrrrfect backdrop for this workshop. And as per usual with the First We Eat workshops, we’ll be making every meal from scratch, which means lots of delicious homemade southwestern dishes for all of us! I’d love to have you join me, and if you have any questions at all feel free to email me via the address in the sidebar of this blog. Hope to see you soon!!
