Kinfolk Workshop: Flower Potlucks

Words by Julie Pointer

Our Kinfolk workshop in April 2013 was the Flower Potluck. Here we are sharing some photos and films from the events. (We also recently made a Kinfolk Saturdays: Flower Potluck film!)

Leaves, pollen, petals, blooms, foliage, fronds. April found us championing the delights of flowers across the globe with our Flower Potluck workshops, held in big cities and cozy towns alike.  On 22 different occasions, friends and strangers converged to play with Spring’s blossoms, gathering for a simple meal together in celebration of the season. We found both near and far that folks are unreservedly enamored by nature’s offerings, and guests came with hands full of freshly foraged and collected abundance. Flower crowns were plenty; lilac bowties were spotted on a few. Everyone went home with a new bundle-full, arranged from the bounty provided by all. We’re thinking a potluck of such proportions might be necessary for every season. Check out some images from our worldwide locations below:
