    When it comes to bubbles, our spirits light up: almost every wine producing country in the world produces sparkling wine of some sort: Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, Crémant, Blanquette de Limoux, Franciacorta, Sekt, American sparkling wines etc. What stands behind those names? What are the different processes? Which grape varieties are used? How have marketing strategies differed across the categories? 

    This dinner session will include the tasting of 5 different sparkling wines with refill. Home-made nibbles will complement this tasting. 

    About the Instructor: Hélène Goble comes from a wine-producing family in Bordeaux and organizes wine tasting events and annual wine tours of Bordeaux and Champagne. As well as presenting wines, she will introduce you to the French ’savoir-vivre’ and secrets of wine selection that will leave you impressed. Hélène is a graduate of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust in London.

    If you enjoy everyday life stories, ordinary people, and still life, this workshop is for you. We are surrounded by beauty at every instant, and you will learn how to capture these moments and transform them into poetic images.

    You will learn to be aware of your surroundings and keep a lookout for moments while walking on the street, through a market, or in a crowd during a day of national celebration. You will train your eye while learning about the photos of great masters, such as Robert Doisneau, Saul Leiter and Martin Parr.

    Students can expect to:

    • learn about composition in photography

    • develop observational skills to catch a moment in a photograph

    • get hands-on experience through practical assignments.

    • Participate in a friendly critique of their work

    Suitable for all levels and all kinds of digital cameras.
