PRIMAVERA Residences was transformed into a place of learning arts and crafts last May 24 as participants gathered for a whole day of workshops and seminars on flower arrangement, interior design and photography.

Primavera Residences, a green condo complex in Uptown Cagayan de Oro, played host to the two events – Prima de Mayo and Pick Your Passion Photography Workshops.

Prima de Mayo was a flower arranging workshop and interior design seminar held at the inner courtyard of Primavera Residences.

It aimed to teach participants on the basics of flower arrangements and maximizing small spaces.

Both workshop and seminar were conducted by Anna Christina Sagarbarria, a local licensed interior designer who specializes in renovations and home makeovers.

During the workshop, participants learned how to mix and match colors when arranging flowers, and were taught the basic terminologies in color harmony.

The participants were also treated to a crash course on interior design, with Sagarbarria providing tips on how they can get the most out of small spaces.

The Pick Your Passion Photography Workshop sought to teach promising photographers the techniques in street photography and lighting.

The whole day workshop was conducted by Cagayan de Oro professional photographers, Glenn Palacio and Gian James Maagad.

There was a special participation by CdeO cosplayer Shoji Daradal as she modeled for a photo shoot session in the afternoon.

The photography workshop coincided with the unveiling of Palacio’s photo exhibit at the function hall of Primavera Residences called “Exhibit X” featuring several of his best works using Fuji X Series cameras. Palacio is a brand ambassador of the Fuji X Series cameras.

The Prima de Mayo workshop was organized in partnership with Truly Wealthy Corporation, one of Cagayan de Oro’s property brokers and Primavera Residences’ top performing realty broker in 2013.

The Pick Your Passion Photography Workshop was also organized in partnership with Colours Digital Foto and Fujifilm Philippines.
