As soon as I walked through the door and entered into the workshop I was overwhelmed by the smell of Christmas. You know that warm smell of pine and spice that seems to define the holidays? The ambiance in Lene’s floral workshop was absolutely perfect, and I so enjoyed spending the night with her, and 5 other lovely ladies- including my sister-in-law who drove up from Flensburg to Kolding with me.
Last week I tried something new! I went to a wreath-making workshop with Lene of Wildflowers dk. Wildflowers dk did all of the florals for Diana and Karsten’s wedding in Vejle last month, and if you haven’t checked out their blogpost yet, do yourself a favor and CLICK HERE! I loved the florals at Diana and Karsten’s wedding, so of course when Wildflowers dk announced this workshop, I knew I had to be there!
At the beginning of the workshop, we were instructed, and the rest of the night we each worked on our own wreath while chatting and laughing with and being inspired by each other. Getting to craft this wreath felt almost meditative, and it reminded me of how important it is to allow ourselves to be creative- and to remember to use our hands sometimes. Although shooting images is a creative outlet for me, a large chunk of my work also entails sitting in front of a computer screen and editing and refining images, and writing e-mails, so it felt great to use my creativity and channel this creativity through a medium that felt less familiar to me. I loved it.
One of my absolute favorite things about the night was how although all of us were given access to the exact same materials, every wreath ended up being uniquely different. It was beautiful to see the diversity!
I hope you all enjoy these pictures and if any of you are in Kolding and looking for a florist, don’t forget to check out Wildflowers dk (Bonus; her work is organic and local to Kolding)!
