MODERN HANDMADE DOLLS & QUILTS
 

We are thrilled to share our very first international retreat in collaboration with Chateau Dumas, featuring a week-long residential workshop with the iconic and extraordinary Jess Brown. During these six inspiration-packed days and seven nights at the Chateau, students will learn the art of the modern rag doll, design and make a throw-sized quilt using Jess' unique approach, and spend a morning woad dyeing fabrics with local expert Denise Lambert to include in the quilts. Jess' style of sewing, technique and the creative process around which she has built her brand, allow for free expression, happy accidents, and deconstructed style. Jess' wonderful studio assistant, Kim Hillman, will be assisting all week, providing students with an extra level of care and guidance. In addition to the workshops, guests will visit local markets, source vintage linens, share delicious meals, including a picnic in the garden and a barbeque in the woods, and stay in the beautifully designed rooms on-site at the Chateau. We invite you to immerse yourself in a magical creative and self-care experience in the gorgeous French countryside.

VENUE

Chateau Dumas is the perfect place to come to for a creative retreat, offering week-long residential workshops between June and October in two light and airy studios in southwest France. Set on a hill in peaceful, rolling countryside less than an hour north of Toulouse international airport, Chateau Dumas is a 22-acre private estate with a large pool and glorious panoramic views. Chateau Dumas provides the luxury and personal service of a small hotel with the relaxed informality and intimacy of a large country house. The Chateau's 18th century interior has been sensitively restored, updated and furnished with a blend of antique and contemporary furniture and accessories.

EATS

Delicious, homemade meals are prepared for our guests using fresh, local ingredients. You’ll enjoy summer picnics, plancha-cooked meals in the woods and themed dinners prepared for you by one of our chefs.

ACCOMMODATION

Our workshop guests stay in one of our individually-designed bedrooms, many with ensuite designer bathrooms,
or at our delightful local B&B.
