Saturday 14-21 September 2019with Anna Corba

About the Workshop

The Bonne Fete Retreat is a bountiful blend of studio time, delicious meals cooked by our in house chef and excursions to nearby flea markets, food markets and quaint villages.

Anna's creative workshops are filled with her love of collage, French aesthetic, vintage ephemera and signature beeswax technique.  The studio will be stocked with authentic materials; old books, carte postales, postage stamps, ledgers, ribbons and lace, all to be transformed into journals, small art pieces and keepsakes.  Lizzie will indulge your textile fantasies by providing a cache of French linens to be repurposed into lovely sachets filled with Chateau lavender, totes, notions and more. 

We are visited during the week by the lovely Fabienne, a collector of all things beautiful and fabulous, linens, buttons, watch parts, rosaries and more, from which you can choose to add to your creative supplies or collections, as desired.  Adding to the festivities, there will be two cookery demos and a tour of the local food market, along with tastings and introductions to individual vendors.

The entire week is designed to impart an authentic experience of the French countryside, while stimulating your creativity and offering space for personal relaxation.

Return home brimming with inspiration, new friends and a bevy of handmade goodies!
