Hey hey! We just hit new squad goal heights. About a week ago we headed off for (slightly) warmer Sydney shores for our full day workshop.
We transformed the über chic La Porte space in Waterloo into an equally chic classroom for 28 lucky ‘girl bosses’ (says so on the hand creams)

Empowering, insightful and honest (according to the cool folk that attended), Marie + Sarah let our crew for the day into the inner workings of The Style Co, where they broke out some hard earned lessons, awesome tips on what it means to be in the business of being creative and general ‘game upping’ (yeah, we just made that a thing).

This time around we teamed up with the good peeps at Timbermill, Damselfly, Pressed Juices and Doughnut Time – high fives!
A special thanks to all our guests who travelled far and wide to hang out with us for the day. Go forth and get hustling!

Stay inspired and in the loop without workshops by following us on Instagram @thestyleco @howtostyleco and subscribing here.

New workshop now up here, finer details TBC.

The Style Co. Creative Business Workshop - Brisbane

A few weeks ago we held yet another Creative Business + Styling workshop!

Again, our sold out workshop saw the start of the weekend in our Workroom fill up with a bubbly bunch of creatives. This time, we hosted a good number of interstaters and a few from across the seas along with our lovely locals.

The weekend was a buzz with so much conversation, an insight into our ‘Style Co.’ way of doing things, a backstage pass into our studio and warehouse, some floral play and of course, the yummiest long lunch at Circa, The Deck.

Our spoilt attendees were hydrated and refuelled by our lovely friends from Antipodes, Greene Street Juices, Fog City sangria, Food and Desire, Doughboys and Eat a scroll.

A massive thanks to Bindle, who so generously provided our attendees with their daily dose of fudge, tea, body scrub, honey and hot chocolate… you guys are aahhmazing!!

This weekend would not have been possible without our generous friends… a massive thanks to The Collective, Stix & Flora, Love Ludie, Bianca Cash, Cargo Crew, Charlie’s Cookies, Xero, Peep Designs and Ingrained.

Last weekend we held our second Creative Business + Styling workshop… the last one was a heap of fun so couldn’t wait to do it all over again!

An eclectic bunch of creatives descended upon our new HQ on a sunny Melbourne Saturday.

On day one these florists, stylists, designers and up & comers nutted out the fundamentals of creative business, how to make magic and how to make money doing it. Marie + Sarah gave everyone a backstage pass into The Style Co. First, The Style Co. story from it’s beginnings to it’s growing pains, high highs to now and future plans. Our new HQ has never looked better with the help from Dann Event Hire.

We covered branding, our mistakes and lessons learned, developing your ideas, concept creation and hot tips and tricks

Our lucky attendees were caffeinated and fuelled by the boys at Tommy Collins, refreshed by the beautiful Finn Pressed Juice, hydrated by elegant antipodes water and liquored up with cheeky Fog City sangria.

Day two took place at Circa on their stunning deck. Marie + Sarah, when through an entire concept and how the team brought it to life. After a bit of floral play, we all sat down to Circa’s mouth-watering menu (and more than a little champagne and wine)

Thanks to our generous friends.. our lucky attendees headed home with a beautiful scented Ecoya candle, custom pencils made just for us by Ingrained, a delightful Myrtle and Moss hand cream, motivating postcard from Press Print Digital, stunning silk Indus scarf, a collection of paper treats form The Paper Empire, stylish notebook form Inky Co., guilt free indulgent Pana Chocolate, a very handy Whileaway Guide, adorable Paper hearts form Alex Mae and a copy of the ever inspiring HOORAY! Mag.

Thank you to all of our friends for letting as show off your amazing products. We love what you do and not afraid to share it!

We feel so lucky to get to share our knowledge and experience with others trying to make it happen in the crazy world of being creative. These workshops are an amazing opportunity for us to connect and create a community that work together.

We cannot wait for our final Melbourne workshop for 2014 in October! Hope to see some of you lovelies there!

To our interstate friends.. dates being released this week (yay!)

Day two of our Creative Business + Styling Workshop was all about learning by getting our hands dirty! Circa was our stunning venue of choice and it was on their beautiful deck that we brought our two concepts to life. We went over the theory of styling and shared the low down on instagramming.

The weekend was a great chance for us to show off some of our fav suppliers. We were lucky to play with elements from Dann Event Hire, Middle of Nowhere and Papyrus Design. Each look was complete with the help of our Style Co floral fairies.

We wrapped up the weekend with a delicious and long lunch (yes adult beverages were served). Our attendees scored another armful of goodies, a stunning scarf from Indus Design, the latest edition of HOORAY!, Mi Goals notebook and Alex Mae’s adorable Paper Hearts. Thank you to all of our friends for helping us treat these talented ladies, we know they will love your wares as much as we do!

Madeline Kate Photography beautifully captured the weekend and we cannot wait to see what Humdrum Films creates for us!

We had a blast and know that we have made some amazing friendships. We feel so honoured that these inspiring and talented ladies wanted to share their weekend with us. We are uber pumped for the next workshop and meeting more of you kind and creative folk!

Some feedback from Kate McLean:
Walking away from the workshop I felt energised, inspired and above all else, in awe! Experiencing the magic of The Style Co. firsthand filled me with confidence and a renewed sense of passion and purpose for my own business. It was amazing to hear about the evolution of The Style Co. All of a sudden, everything we each hoped to achieve in our own businesses became entirely possible, and it was great to be in a room of people who are so eager to offer their help and support. Overall, I absolutely loved it. I wish I could do it all over again!

Book your spot for the next workshop!

When we released our first 2 day Event Styling + Creative Business workshop.. it sold out!! Crazy..We know! Marie & Sarah were already humbled and honoured that so many people had booked in but to also have almost half the attendees come from interstate was amazing.

Here’s the skinny on what happened on Day One!

Our Workshop took place in our sparkly new Cremorne HQ. Our fervently enthusiastic attendees were greeted by the dapper Tommy Collins Barista before taking their seats, unplugging from the daily grind and allowing the magic of the workshops to unfold.

Day One was the business of business and a backstage pass into The Style Co. and how the business ticks.

Marie & Sarah started by sharing their story, how The Style Co was born and the challenges overcome along the journey to making it a successful & profitable design company in its short four years. They discussed the importance of branding and finding your voice, their intentions behind the brand and how this drives everything at The Style Co including interacting with clients, pricing and their designs and how to stand out in such a competitive market.

We rounded up all the nitty gritty with some playtime. Everyone was shown the basics of prepping flowers and before making their beautiful take home posies.

All in all it was a magnetising day of storytelling, learning and opportunity. Attendees left feeling focused about their businesses and super pumped for Day 2!

A massive shout out to our wonderful friends, Tommy Collins for making sure we were fuelled all day long. Dann Event furniture and Select AV for turning our studio into schmick little classroom. Thank you also to Antipodes Water, Pressed Juices and Fog City Sangria for keeping us hydrated.

Our lucky attendees also received a stash of treaties from Inky Co. Inka Notebooks, Whileaway Guides and Grace and James candles.

The fun was captured by the gorgeous Madeline Kate Photography and the handsome fellas at Humdrum Films.

We’ve also released our new October dates!

Book your spot!

Some feedback we’ve received:

“I felt so inspired, motivated and passionate about the industry again as some times it’s easy to ask yourself if it’s really worth it whilst still working another part time job.

The weekend’s workshop validated that this is truly what I love and I’m more eager than ever to push the boundaries and make some changes to our business structure so it’s both emotionally and financially rewarding for us.”

“I absolutely loved the workshop and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I got out of it. I have also highly recommended it to a number of people.”
