A creative retreat revolving around

vegan food, styling and photography in the forests of Southern Sweden

Join us in the midst on the Swedish forests as we will gather in the peaceful surrounding of Småland with the typical red houses, endless woodlands and winding paths. We will enjoy beautiful food, good company and a high level of creative muse.

 

You will find new inspiration for the art of plating, beautiful and sustainable ways of styling and hands-on experience working with your own and group set designs. Last but not least you will learn great techniques how to capture your designs on camera. After five days you will go home with lots of amazing content and an invigorated skill set to continue that flow.

Whether you are a creative or a food lover - or both - we will provide you with a delicious winged week full of great meals, flowers, smiles, new knowledge, new ways of working and eating.

Over the course of five days we will celebrate food, harvest, spring and beauty. April, think: sprouting greens, blossoms and late snow. Light, dreamy, peachy pinks, radish, roots, herbs, fermented foods. The forest is waking up and the first flowers are growing. The perfect time to gather around a table and feast. We will cook, plate, style, eat and capture.

​We will enjoy and plate beautiful meals together. Exploring different ways of plating and cooking. Beauty, flavour and experiment are at the heart. Good company, laughs and relaxing  are the cherry on the cake.
