Instagram workshop

Autumn Workshop
Date (TBA)


Another opportunity to connect in-person with local creative business owners.

The August 7th workshop at Brazier Coffee Roasters, Tonedale Mills in Wellington was great fun. A new date will be announced shortly.

Participants took so many great shots – the Mills are an endless source of inspiration.

Here are a few images of my own.


Attendees learn about the latest Instagram features and get insights into small businesses who are using Instagram well.  Time will also be spent shooting and editing with two brilliant photo editing apps. In addition, attendees will get tips on and planning scheduling.

No level of expertise necessary, beginners welcome.
