The wonderful Grace Bonney of Design*Sponge recently asked if she could feature a day in my life on her beautiful blog. I have been following her work for almost a decade now and always admired the designs she features so naturally I was super excited! Below are some of the photos we took, but you can also check out the entire feature with more pictures here…
We have a paid internship opportunity available! Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested:
Our ideal candidate has a strong interest, and some basic knowledge, in floral design. Responsibilities will include conditioning flowers, keeping the studio organized, purchasing materials and flowers, and assisting in making arrangements for clients and events.
In addition, we build and customize many of our vases/containers and other types of decor, so if you possess other hand skills (are not afraid to paint, sew, use a nail gun, a chop saw, etc) that would be a great plus.
Basically, we would love to work with someone who can multi-task, is interested in learning new things, and who enjoys rolling up his/her sleeves when necessary. Photography skills are also a strong plus.
Details: Part-time, paid internship, flexible schedule in a fun, creative and fast-paced environment. We are open to discussing work schedule arrangements. Our studio is in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
If your skills meet the requirements above please forward pictures of your work together with your resume to Ingrid@TinCanStudiosBK.com
It has been a somewhat long process, perhaps because of my inability to make up my mind when it comes to what size our worktable should be. Or was it that we had six events in two weeks last month, or that there were a few other kinks in the road… hmm, probably a bit of all.
We are not quite finished yet, but we are taking some pictures of the process and are super pleased with the outcome so far. One of my favorite parts so far is our flower cooler. We decided to cover it with cedar shingles, install a found old window, a corrugated tin roof, and made it look like a shed. Why not, right?
Maybe some of our design decisions were based mainly on our urge to break out the nail gun, regardless we are having fun in the process…
Adding the last shingles to the outside of the flower cooler.
