Workshop Wednesdays: Summer Workshops

Are you annoyed yet with how much I talk about Workshop Wednesdays?
Well, too bad, ‘cause they ain’t goin’ nowhere, and I ain’t gonna stop lovin’ em!!!


Crissy prepared a dope line up workshops for the summer and really embody summertime vibes. Though we love the cozy atmosphere of Moja in North Vancouver we ventured to Crissy’s backyard for some outdoor fun in the summer heat!

Weaving with Bruno + Delilah

Summer workshops started with weaving, a feat I didn’t think could happen without a loom, but these ladies proved me wrong! Everyone made the most adorable circle weavings that had me so, so jelly!

Chalkboard Lettering with Lettered with Love

Led by one of the masterminds behind the ahhhmazing work at bespoke decor, Nas walked everyone through how to letter like a goddess! It was super cool watching everyone develop their own styles and go home with their own chalkboards. Pro tip - you can sharpen chalk with a pencil sharpening. Yeah, I know, GAME CHANGER.

Watercolour with Citrushues

This one had me really in awe. One of the reasons I got into photography is because I can’t paint or draw for crap, but watching these brave humans give it a go in front of people they don’t know was so amazing. Plus, check in their INSANELY amazing results!

Bookbinding with Bittermelon Bindery

At some point during EVERY Workshop Wednesday I shoot, I think to myself “Damn, I wish I took this workshop!”. This time, I did it the ENTIRE time. The beautiful paper, the cool ass journal, the fact you made it yourself - oh my!
