Erin is coming to Singapore!!!

Bloesem Class | Erin Loechner in Singapore

Dear All…

You will just have to bear with me while you read through this somewhat lengthy post..., yes, you are right, quite out of character for me to be this longwinded...but there is so much to tell! Where to start…

Often people ask me how it is even possible to make a living writing a blog and I see their jaws drop when I tell them I am actually writing two blogs ... what, how, wait, how do you do that?

Well, I could give you some hints and tips but I feel these questions should really be answered by someone that I believe has truly made it BIG online.

So I invited Erin Loechner who you will know from design for mankind, design for minikind and Clementine Daily to come to Singapore and host a number of Bloesem Classes. And the enthusiastic person she is, she immediately said YES!

Of course, I was thrilled Erin accepted the invitation to come to Asia with her family. It is absolutely fabulous to finally meet her in person; something I have been looking forward to professionally but also to finally meet a very good on-line friend.

Erin and I go way back to 2006 when we first made contact online and we had an instant connection... we exchanged blog posts, sharing the same interests for crafts and arts. Connecting, sharing and making the world we live in smaller was and remains our passion.

Erin is known not only for her blogs but also for the way she communicates with her readers and fellow bloggers... every single email she writes is positive, uplifting and friendly...perhaps this is “Lesson 1” when you want to be succesful online :)

But I’m sure there is so much more we can learn from her! Erin is a highly sought-after conference speaker and her appearances at Alt Summit, Richie Ace Camps and The Hive, have inspired many already and encouraged people to start online ventures of their own. BUT with this Bloesem Class you will get the very rare opportunity to meet Erin in a small group of people, not a big conference but an intimate gathering instead, where all of you will be sitting front row, listening, asking questions, absorbing and, simply, talking to this amazing lady!

I'm absolutely sure you will be mesmerized by her appearance, her words and ideas ...just to give you a little hint of Erin’s own on-line journey...according to her:

"In 2001, I blogged to find myself.
In 2002, I blogged to find people like myself.
In 2003, I blogged to find people unlike myself.
In 2004, I blogged to become a writer.
In 2005, I blogged to avoid therapy.
In 2006, I blogged to research.
In 2007, I blogged because I was obsessed.
In 2008, I blogged to share.
In 2009, I blogged to hide.
In 2010, I blogged to create.
In 2011, I blogged to teach.
In 2012, I am blogging to discover.
In 2013, I traveled the world"

And in 2014...  she is coming to Singapore! So mark your calendar for the week starting [insert] May. Erin will be hosting two different type of classes :

BLOG, BETTER, BEST! THE SECRETS TO BLOGGING SUCCESS BY ERIN LOECHNER

ONE STOP #SOCIALMEDIACLASS BY ERIN LOECHNER

visit the links and find all the details, dates and how to sign up

Erin will be sharing with us her secrets on how to grow an audience, engaging a community and building traffic to your corner of the Internet; if you live on-line, want to start on an on-line venture or just have an interest to learn about the on-line world, you don’t want to miss this opportunity and sign up right away! (or if you don’t live in Singapore but in a neighboring country and don’t want to miss Erin’s classes, please let us help you find a hotel or a place to sleep!).

As said, we only have limited seats available for these classes and we expect demand to be great!

Time Out here's some Chocolaad!

Bloesem living | TimeOut Singapore Bloesem feature

So this little package with the most delicious chocolate is on it's way to the TimeOut Singapore head office - why? - because they gave us some really nice press coverage in their latest issue. I'm of course thrilled  and as a long time reader of 'TimeOut Anywhere' and understanding I think the kind of content they are after I feel it as a huge compliment they like our space too!

To be honest ever since we moved into our space in Tiong Bahru we have been getting so many nice responses from people just visiting and obviously also for the press. 

So thank you Singapore for welcoming the Bloesem Creative Space so warmly to your city!

Class Alert: Cook. Bake. Shoot

Bloesem Living | Bloesem Class Alert: Food Styling and Photography with Elodie Bellegarde 3 /4 May 2014

*New Bloesem Class: Cook. Bake. Shoot with Elodie Bellegarde

We are happy to announce a new class which is all about food styling and photography!

Are you passionate about food and wish you could take pictures like these too ... Well here's your chance! Bloesem has invited Elodie Bellegarde to teach our next Bloesem class this May! She is a french food photographer, stylist and writer, who we are lucky enough to have based right here in Singapore.

Her work, as well as list of clients, are impressive to say the least. We don't like to name drop but there really are some pretty big BRAND's in that list, if you catch our drift. She is also in the midst of writing a cookbook, along with Denise Hung, that will be published by PageOne late this year.

Due to the nature of the class, there are very limited spaces, so that every student gets enough attention and takes away as much as possible from the class. We will be organizing two classes during the weekend, one on 3 May 2014 (Sat) from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm and one on 4 May 2014 (Sun) from 9.30 am to 1.30 pm.

You will get to see the behind the scenes of how these food shots are actually made. And we are confident that after the class, you too will be able to make beautiful food shots. Whether you take pictures for fun or for your job, this will be a great way to learn the tips and tricks. Insta-game: LEVEL UP!

Class Alert : learn how to screen print

Screenpront

*New Bloesem Class: Screen Printing with Lisette Scheers

You have all heard of screen printing. It's the beautiful process and printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image * thank you wikipedia*. Basically it's the patterned pieces we see everywhere, from art prints to t-shirts to pillow cases. 

We have been long time admirers of the process and would love to learn the skill ourselves so we invited Lisette Scheers, wonderfully talented lady and business woman behind Nala designs.  (many of you would have seen her stationery products in the Bloesem shop). She also has her own design and advertising company, L.Inc! How does she do it?

We can't wait to get our hands on the paints and get our favorite prints on all kinds of products! Students are urged to bring in cloth items they would like to print their patterns on.

Though in this class, we will be printing on cloth, Lisette will be teaching us the basics of screen printing which can be applied to many other materials including paper, so not to worry!

Due to the overwhelming responses from the first 2 Bloesem classes, we have opened 4 screen printing classes. 2 on Saturday 17 may at 9.30am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 6pm, and 2 on Sunday 18 may at 9,30 am to 1pm and 2.30pm to 6pm. Each student only attends one class, choosing whichever time slot they prefer. For all other details about the class, do check out Bloesem.co! We hope to see you there!
