I explore, create and imagine until I have a magical and stimulating concept needing only new faces to bring it to life.
The workshop is run over a week which passes oh so quickly.
Each workshop is different to it’s predecessor, evolving slowly, growing creatively.
The workshop is held in the beautiful village of Durfort in the Tarn department of Southern France.
The village of ancient houses nestles in the valley between heavily wooded mountains, a valley cut by the river Sor which still flows through and around the village.
There is a timelessness, with room stretch and breathe deeply, to release, relax and feel free.
There is a lake nearby in the mountains for swimming, sailing, canoeing.
Wild woods surround us and walks are but moments away.
The dyes are Dupont. Jaquard and Knaizeff.
The silks are Mulberry silks such as Habotai.
They are cut from the bolt as required by you for painting,
Because I love natural materials, shapes and colours I strive to engage workshop participants in the beauty of the stunning living environment which surrounds the village.
The course for summer 2021 is now available and I hope you will join me in Durfort for a week of magical memories and sensational silks
