As I awkwardly wove my way through the uber hip Koskela, it dawned on me that 'The School' was even more hip than I had initially imagined. After passing blond beauties and Castle linens, I stumbled upon a crisp white foyer dotted with tasteful fluro accents. There I waited amongst Louis Vuitton clad stylists (fo' realz) and various other trend setters.
When the time came, Morton welcomed us into her studio with open arms. Within seconds she had memorised her guests names and made familiar connections - she called me Beetleshack, but as far as I'm concerned she meant 'darling'.
While we worked, our warm and effortlessly gracious host made us cups of tea, ordered fresh coffee and poured glasses of cool rosé to ensure we were always hydrated. Hand crafted dark chocolate was served aside cream topped slice as Paul Simons sung sweetly into our ears.
I made a peach, gold and fluro pink Tassel Garland that now sits smugly above my bed. I'm dreaming of making many more for the 30th birthday party we'll be hosting for Dave mid next month.
Honestly, I can't recommend The School highly enough. Please do yourself a favour, gather some lady cakes and book in a date. The crafting is truly excellent but for me, it was secondary to being treated like a guest of honour by one of Australia's leading stylists.
Amazing woman, amazing School, amazing day.
Thank you Megan Morton, you crazy excellent human being.
