BLAND Badger

Charlotte Bland and Ros Badger will lead a retreat at Villa Pia from 5th to 12th October 2019. With special guest tutor Aly Walsh from That’s Not My Age and yoga with Meredith Gundersson

Together they will teach you to style and take the perfect lifestyle photograph, sharing their extensive knowledge throughout the week.

The week begins with an exciting trip to Arezzo’s huge monthly flea market to source styling props for your lifestyle photography, scour antique shops or have a lazy lunch, all in this most beautiful Tuscan town.

Visit the Aboca Apothecary Museum and be amazed by their collection of ancient glass, ceramics and antique prints and make your own lip balm too.

See The Madonna del Parto and have a drink in Monterchi’s piazza.

Have lunch and photograph at the truly eccentric Ravagni Olive farm which has been in the same family for 600 years.

Hand stitch a leather-bound book. Make cyanotypes using the magic of the Tuscan sun ….and lots more.

End the day with conversation and aperitifs. Spend the evenings making merry, drinking wine while eating delicious home-cooked food prepared by wonderful local chefs.
