We're heading back to France! Join us on our next planned getaway to the South of France - we'll be returning to the wonderful Chateau Dumas for two different weeks during the Summer of 2010. Our weeks are planned with the textile lover in mind - whether it's learning about old millinery flowers or discovering the difference between hemp, nettle and linen.
Along with mastering the art of woad dying and learning the process of textile block printing - we will be enjoying the simple rural life at a splendid country chateau. Fresh market food prepared by a local chef, yoga and the optional massage will be on the menu to create a week that not only nurtures one's well being, but allows time to soak in the pace of la maison de Dumas. Lizzie, chatelaine of Chateau Dumas, and I have created a week of relaxation, exploring and creative fun. We will take a couple of day trips to local villages to visit old factories and brocantes, learn about truffles, wine and cheese, as well as spend peaceful time at the chateau for casual crafting. We have two weeks planned for next summer - hope you can join us on one of them!
