The Sketchbook Series – A Workshop for Creatives
Carillon Weddings at Carillon Beach is proud to host The Sketchbook Series Workshop for Creatives on February 26-27th, 2018 along the Gulf Coast of Florida. Straight from The Sketchbook Series, read on to find out why this workshop is a fit for all creative types.
“Whether it’s a product or design, selling an idea is about appealing to the senses. Once you have built a connection with your client through sketching, you’ve paved way towards building trust with that client. The Sketchbook Series workshops not only teach sketching techniques but also concepts and strategies around communicating visions effectively.
Our curriculum is recommended for people of all backgrounds not limited to creative professionals, entrepreneurs, event planners, project managers, and designers.
If you want to develop a new skill, hobby or yearn to kick off a new passion business or project, our workshops are great places to start.” — The Sketchbook Series
“We are so excited to host Mary Pham and the Sketchbook Series! I’ve been wanting to attend this conference for years now, but it was never offered during a good time of year or at a location that didn’t require extensive travel. I love every opportunity to showcase our beautiful area and its incredible vendors, and this was the perfect connection to make! I’m also really looking forward to building this creative skillset as another outlet and service to, and for, my clients.” — Avis Glenister, owner of Peach and Pearl Events and host at Carillon Weddings at Carillon Beach.
We asked Renee Armour with Ceremony Design Company her thoughts on attending a past Sketchbook Series Event. “You’ll find yourself listening to the music, drawing a lot better than you think you can, and relaxing in a beautiful setting. Your to-do list really does go away, and you’re lulled into this sketching thing in a way that you didn’t expect! It adds such a layer of connection when you sketch for your client–for them and for you. I can tell you as a vendor, when you leave, your creative tank is going to feel full. This is another way for creatives to express themselves outside of their normal creative “job.”
“This class taught me how to elevate the guest experience at a wedding. I learned so much from Mary — how to draw when I have absolutely NO drawing skills and how to trust my creative instinct. I think my biggest takeaway was that it reminded me that all the work we do on the details for a wedding… matter. When I walked in, I felt loved and that they wanted me to be there – the decor and location was well thought out, it was beautiful and inspiring – and it was all for me! So, I took that feeling home with me. I hope to infuse what I can of that into all of my events – from the first contact with a newly engaged couple to when the first guest arrives at the reception to the end of the night when that tired bridesmaid is grabbing her purse and the shoes she danced off. If you’re a vendor reading this — I hope you go to one of these. The minute you walk in, you’ll be thankful you signed up!” — Renee Armour
