Pipe Shop || October 20, 2017 || Vancouver B.C.
Last month I attended a Master Class workshop with Katie Davis of Ponderosa and Thyme. We gathered in the Pipe Shop in North Vancouver for an all day intensive on centrepieces and large floral installations. I'm sure many others have come away, as I did, with an experience that was not only about flowers, but also about myself. Seeing Katie's process through a flower meditation was inspiring, and made me think more about my own creative process as a means to connect with the emotional and physical aspect of floral design.
The Pipe Shop at the Shipyards in North Vancouver was a spectacular venue. Situated right on the waterfront, it has enormous windows, exposed wooden beams and concrete floors. Definitely a great wedding location!
It was lovely to get to know the person behind the social media account, as Katie is one of my favourite designers. Not only is she an artist but very personable, full of information, generosity and advice.
