Floral Crown Workshop on Studio 512

We were so excited to be back at Studio 512 to promote our upcoming Honeychild kids festival!

We'll be hosting a floral crown tutorial at the event, so we decided to show the host, Amanda Tatom, how it's done.

Materials

  • flowers and greenery (real or faux)
  • floral wire
  • floral tape
  • floral wire cutters
  • twine
  • ribbon

Step

  • Cut a piece of twine in length that matches the circumference of your head.
  • Tie ribbon on both ends, so that you can tie it all together when done.
  • Gather leaves with a flower, and with the small pieces of floral wire, wrap the wire around each group of flowers/leaves and the twine.
  • Wrap the wire with floral tape.
  • Continue this process throughout the twine until you reach the end.  

There is no wrong way to design the piece, so have fun and fill in as much as you want.

Here's the finished product!  We love how it turned out.  To catch the segment, you can head here!

We can't wait to see you all at Honeychild, so that you can make your own! Click below for more scoop!

Whiskey 101 Recap

Well, well, well.  Who knew whiskey (whisky, whiskeys, whiskies) could be so much fun?  We always have a blast organizing cocktail workshops, but it was real treat participating as a newbie.

On July 30, She + Him Bartending showed up and showed out for our first workshop at the studio. The dynamic duo walked the whiskey curious through a history lesson on bourbon, scotch and rye, followed by a tasting of each.

Afterwards, we did our best bartender impressions and made a cocktail with each whiskey type using professional bar tools.

Let's just say the weekend was a success.  We had a great time meeting new people, and can't wait to do it all over again.  Stay tuned and thirsty, my friends!

Sip + Brunch Recap

In June, we hosted our first round of Sip + Brunch at Weather Up in East Austin.  It was a hot one, but the drinks most definitely kept us cool on the spacious patio.

The kind bartender and our host, Fidel, was not only talented but incredibly knowledgable. He walked us through three cocktail recipes - the daiquiri, the Manhattan and the margarita.

We all practiced our skills with professional and stylish bar tools. Fidel covered the proper way to shake, stir and pour and everything in between. 

Chef  Kristine Kittrell completed the afternoon with her culinary magic. Bacon bites, cheese plates, chicken and waffles... you name it.  It was quite the treat getting to sample their delectable brunch menu.

As an added bonus, we provided each guest with a swag bag chockfull of local and creative goodies, like custom cocktail recipe cards from Emma Gundlach, Austin Beerworks Pearl Snap, gold paper straws and metal drink stirrers!

The Identité Collective

We are beyond excited to have Anastasia Casey in our studio on the first stop of her The Identité Collective workshop series on August 20-21. As a professional graphic designer, she provides top notch branding services for small businesses with a conservative budget.

Not only is she bringing those skills to this branding boot camp, she's taking it even further by providing step-by-step instructions on how to effectively use your new brand design across your website and social media platforms.

After just two days, you will leave with a new logo, a perfectly curated mood board to carry out your new look across platforms, photography + editing skills, and social media tips to grow your following. How incredible is that?

Margot Blair Floral Workshop #TBT

There's a little bright, white studio on the east side that we call home, and it is the perfect little spot for intimate workshops and gatherings. 

We have so many great events coming up on the horizon, but take a look back to our first workshop with Margot Blair Floral in February. Bonnie and Lauren got some great photos of the space in use. 

The studio is the perfect size for groups of 6-16. The space is open and light-filled and able to host creative workshops from calligraphy to cocktail classes to bookclubs. 

Stay up to date with our event calendar here, and we'd love to hear from you to discuss and plan your future workshops and gatherings!
