ABOUT US

Our workshops and venue offer so much more than a few days of teaching from expert artists and makers, musicians and chefs; whether visiting as a group, or simply seeking an escape with true like-minds, Les Soeurs Anglaises provide a real opportunity to (re)discover your innate creativity, free from the stresses of everyday life.  The choice of what you do, how much and when, will be entirely yours and we’ll actively encourage you to go at your own pace.
