Save the date: A food styling and photography workshop in Montreal

Some time last year, I was approached by fellow blogger Mayssam Samaha of Will Travel For Food to see if I was interested in teaching a class in Montreal where she resides.

It was a crazy time for me as I was in the middle of writing my upcoming book, but I knew it was something I wanted to do in a city I have been eager to visit for a while. She patiently waited for me and today, I am thrilled to announce the workshop that I will teaching late this spring in Montreal.

Two full-day food styling and photography workshops at the SAT’s Lab. Please do check out this space even if you are not planning to attend the class. It’s amazing.

Here are the details:

When: June 16 or June 17, 2012, from 9am to 4pm.

Where: The SAT’s FoodLab, Montreal.

What: A 6-hour food styling and food photography workshop.

Cost: $300 for the 6-hour workshop (includes lunch).

Space is limited to 10 students per workshop.

The workshop will be taught in English.

Registration will open on Monday March 5th at 10am EST. To register, please visit Mayssam’s blog.

Will you join us?

    Hi Aran,
    I am excited to hear that you will be in Montreal, as this is closer to my home of Toronto.

    I want to sign up for this class, as it is my dream to attend your styling and photography sessions!

    Just a question: how much “break” do we get during the class? I ask this question because I just had a baby on Jan. 13 and I am nursing. I still expect to be nursing in June, but I really want to join your class. If I could get at least an hour break (perhaps, during lunch) in between to go feed baby, this would be awesome! Any advice?

    My email is

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.


  15. jen laceda says:

    P.S. Are the classes in English or French?

    Thanks again,

  16. I am just looking for such a course in Germany but I could not find a similar one

    but Montreal is sooooooooo far away

  17. I can’t believe my bad luck. I got so excited when I read your post and then when I saw the dates I was so sad. I am now in the Dominican Republic till end of June (end of the school year). I will be back in Montreal first of July.
    Is there any way you can postpone the class just 2 weeks so I can make it? Hope the date is not set in the rocks.

    Please let me know. I am so looking forward to meeting you Aran. I have been daydreaming of attending one of your classes for so long.

  18. wow i wish i could go. Your work is amazing

  19. Jen- there will be one hour lunch break so that will give you time to nurse (I miss those days! :)) right?

    The class will be in English.

    Karine- Unfortunately the dates are set.. I’m sorry it will coincide with you being away :(

    Thank you very much and hope to see you there!

    What a lovely opportunity. I’m going to see if this fits in my schedule. Not that far of a drive from Toronto and my wife and I have been looking at a reason to come back. Cheers.

  22. ChichaJo says:

    Lovely! Oh how I wish I could go! Maybe you will have one in Asia one day :) (I wish!)

  23. Sally says:

    Aran how does Australia sound for a follow up class? Plan B has me winning some sort of lottery and holidaying in Canada and attending you class – fingers crossed xxxx

    It must be a wonderful event.

    What? This time I am actually within driving distance of one of your workshops? I always love an excuse to drive over the boarder to Montreal. (I’m right in VT.) And for something like this, I would be over the moon…I hope I am one of the lucky few.
