This morning, I headed to cupcake shop Sugar Daze for a bag painting workshop hosted by handbag designer Kasia Dietz. If you haven’t heard of Kasia, she makes hand-painted, reversible canvas totes and accessories that are sold in Paris, England and Greece. My personal favorites are the Untitled Bag and the Rive Droite bag.
So when Kasia invited me to a bag painting workshop where not only would we be able to make our own bags under her tutelage, but we’d get to indulge in some cupcakes, I said, “Um, hell yeah!”
Here are some photos from this morning. And I also have to mention that the cupcakes at Sugar Daze were delicious. I had the “Lucky Star”, which is a chocolate cupcake with whipped peanut butter frosting. So good! We all got to take one home too, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to resist eating it today and save it for Rio when he’s back from London tomorrow. On va voir!
And here’s the bag I made!
Besides these monthly workshops (80 euros per person; or 70 euros per person if you come as a pair), Kasia also does private bag painting classes – perfect as a bridal shower activity or tourists looking for an alternate activity while indulging in sweets.
