Workshops – The Potterage

A little while back I arranged a workshop with ten students at the iconic Potterage in the Victorian Dandenong Ranges.  A beautiful French Provincial and Tuscan Villa inspired house, full of vintage wares and antiques, from the floors, the French doors and windows to the furniture. A Lifestyle or still life photographers dream.

It was a magnificent Autumn day, just perfect with blue skies, and a few fuffy white clouds, lots of sunshine and quite warm, without being hot. We spent the afternoon going from room to room, setting small scenes with fresh flowers (I brought armloads) and of course the gardens as well.

We finished off with a wonderful Devonshire afternoon tea and a steam train (Puffing Bill) visiting past the rear of the property as we had our cuppa. It was such a wonderful afternoon, I do hope to run a similar workshop again, perhaps in Spring?
