After an incredibly busy year for us, we rounded up our workshop season with two amazing new leader events: Celia Pym's Knitting, Darning and Mending; and Claire Wellesley Smith's, Dyeing and Stitching. Superlatives are still pouring in from participants and we can't wait to work with both ladies again next year, possibly in a joint workshop if it can be arranged. There will be a special Early Bird Booking offer so keep your eyes peeled!
When we haven't been welcoming participants and stitching away, we've been busy giving our image a revamp, complete with new logo and website! We'd love to hear what you think and any suggestions you might have on how we can improve it, so please let us know in the comments below. Don't forget to take a good look around too and see what's on offer for 2017. From Robert Race's enigmatic toys to Chris Manning's elaborate quilts...next year promises a host of exciting new projects, and of course the return of old favourites Julie Arkell and Asa Tricosa. The summer has ended and we're starting to bundle up...but we're already dreaming of next May. Have a look at what's inspiring us now...wander through our brand new venue and accommodation gallery...and start plotting your journey to a creative summer in South West France.
We will be updating workshop and event pages constantly so please do check in regularly and see what's new. In the meantime...we'll leave you with some images from the end of this wonderful past season. Stay warm, stay inspired and stay in touch!
Please note that over the next few months we will be migrating our old blog on Blogspot over to here...so bookmark this page and try to make a habit of coming here instead.
