Not long ago I received an email from Bianca of Italian Fix. The email said, “I’m wondering if I could entice you to come to Italy this August and teach a workshop?” As you can imagine, it didn’t take too much convincing. Bianca has worked with other creatives I admire (like Leela Cyd, who I’ve blogged about before) on Italian workshops and tours. And like me, Bianca studied in Italy, fell in love with the country and knows it intimately.
For those of you new to the blog, I lived and worked in Italy for seven years, and even though I’m not Italian, I consider the country to be a second home. I haven’t been back in ages and the opportunity to combine two things I love deeply: Italy and teaching, made this experience a must. And to make the whole situation even more irresistible, the creative workshop will be held in the Cinque Terre, which is the Italian Riviera, and pretty much one of the most amazing places on earth.
And guess what? You’re invited.
We’re calling this a Creative Playcation. We are committed to making this a life-changing experience. As Bianca says, It’s going to be part art school, part walking tour, part creative discourse, part mind-meld pow-wow, and then a whole lot of Italian hedonism (AKA carbs and wine). And as if hanging out together and talking shop for a couple of days doesn’t sounds enticing enough, we’ll be in Italy. We’ll be on the beach. We’ll be among friends and fellow creatives. We’ll be breaking bread together–really good bread smothered in extra virgin olive oil. And did I mention we’ll be in Italy?
