Style & Stories / SISTERHOOD SUPPER WITH TOAST

Last Saturday, TOAST helped set the table for the Sisterhood Supper at The Forge in Bristol.

The Sisterhood Supper was the follow up to the inaugural Sisterhood Camp, which took place in May 2015 at Loveland Farm, Devon. Sisterhood was dreamt up by Bristol based lifestyle blogger Lou Archell. A venture designed to re-connect like-minded women with the outdoors, share stories, passions and skills…

The Preparation – Sisterhood Supper. A short film by Xanthe Berkeley

The first Sisterhood Supper was an evening of workshops, good food and friendship. Flickering candle light, warm textures, greenery and conversation.

Located in Bristol’s new creative space The Forge – we welcomed in the changing of the season, from the bountiful harvests of Autumn to the stillness of Winter.
