"Lens and Larder is a cut above all the rest and sets the bar for how to properly look after a group of eager creatives. Starting with their breathtaking surroundings, they know how to let nature do most of the inspiring. Then there is their deep knowledge and appreciation of the culinary world which is half the foundation of food styling and photography. The other half is professional experience and they bring in the best people in the business to share their secrets and inspire you first hand. I would take this workshop again and again and again (as many people do!)." - Claire Ptak, Violet Bakery, London, and author + stylist of the award-winning cookery book, The Violet Bakery Cookbook.

 

"Always held at truly unique and inspiring locations, Imen and Cliodhna, host with such warmth and attention to detail, creative learning retreats with incredible teachers from all over the world.Having both been a teacher at one retreat, and attended one as a participant, I wouldn't hesitate to do both all over again. On both occasions, I left not only with new knowledge gained, but felt completely rejuvenated, inspired to the brim. What they have been able to create in Lens and Larder is truly unique, and in a sea of current creative retreats, theirs stand out as one of a kind powerhouse of learning and creativity, with a generous amount of heart and soul." Marte Marie Forsberg, Norwegian Photographer & Author of forthcoming cookbook autumn 2017.)
