There really is nothing finer than sitting down at a table with loved ones and sharing a meal together. Great life events are centred around the table. It is a place to share, to make, to do, to discover and to nurture. In this busy world of ours it is so very essential for our souls to enjoy small gatherings with like-minded individuals.
Kinfolk magazine founded in Portland in 2011 is a publication which celebrates intimate moments, artisan traditions, and the joy of sharing ideas. With a growing international community of artists, writers, designers, photographers, cooks and others who are interested, Kinfolk celebrates the very human need for small gatherings and for finding new things to make and do. The growing Kinfolk family now host an international series of dinners & workshop events with the signature (and highly infectious) Kinfolk aesthetic. It is the honesty and austerity, the simplicity and the humbleness that makes us all want to take a seat at the Kinfolk table.
Earlier this month, Community Director Julie Pointer and Business Manager Katie Searle-Williams came to Australia to host a weekend retreat in Patonga on the Central Coast of NSW and a Kinfolk Dinner Series at the incredible property Glenmore House on the outskirts of Sydney. We were lucky enough take a seat at the table thanks to a very generous invitation from Luisa Brimble who is the photographer behind many of our Chat in a Chairs. Luisa is undoubtedly the greatest ambassador for the Kinfolk community in Australia.
