Portfolio Workshop

Portfolio Building Workshop with Holly Heider Chapple Flowers and Jodi & Kurt Miller Photography

June 30, 2014-July 1, 2014

9:00am – 5:00pm (optional Chapel Designer session 7:00am – 9:00am)

Holly Chapple will open her private studio and gardens this summer for a special portfolio building workshop. During this two day workshop, you will have the opportunity to create designs for your personal studio portfolio using specialty blooms sourced by Holly Chapple from local growers and her own personal garden. This workshop is not designed to be an intensive instructional time, but a time for you to be creative with the intention of building your personal portfolio. Holly will be in the studio to help guide you as you create, answer your questions, and discuss styling and portfolios. You will have the opportunity to create as many designs as you’d like during the design time using her large personal inventory of props and containers. Holly will provide you with the sourcing information you need to secure the inventory you use for your photo shoot making your designs viable options for future clients at your personal studio.

Your floral designs will be photographed by Jodi & Kurt Miller, who were recently named one of Martha Stewart Weddings’ 69 Top Wedding Photographers.  In addition, Jodi and Kurt will take professional head shots of each attendee. After the workshop, you will receive a USB flash drive containing 20-30 images of your floral designs and 5-10 images of your headshots in hi-res and web resolution with permission for your business/web use.

Holly will also offer an optional session each morning from 7:00am – 9:00am for designers who are interested in becoming Chapel Designers. During this morning session, Holly will share her 20+ years of experience and answer your questions on the topic of running a floral design business. You will also hear about her vision and subsequent creation of the Chapel Designer organization, as well as information on the benefits extended to Chapel Designers.

The workshop will be limited to 12 attendees for optimum design time and personal interaction with Holly.
