Flat Lay Workshop

On Friday the 24th of August I attended a small workshop held by Mkono Events and Flat Lay Boards in Cape Town. Casandra and Candace hosted a small group of wonderful and inspiring ladies for a Flat Lay Workshop. Casandra from Flat Lay boards introduced us to her wide range of beautiful flat lay boards that are light and beautiful!

There were so many designs to chose from, including a marble, whitewashed wood, and slate to floral boards perfect for beauty and lifestyle shots. After sharing a few tips and tricks with us we all started playing with our boards (we were gifted 2 each PLUS a white reflective board AND a bag to carry them all in!) We were forewarned that we could bring items to photograph and play with – I brought my hangers from my online shop Wedding Hangers.

Everyone had a great time and I loved seeing how all the different ladies styled their products and used their boards. I left feeling inspired and my creative tank overflowing.  It truly was a wonderful morning.

This board was styled by Angela from My Sunshine Journey. I stole a quick pic 😉
