Workshop Weekend in France
WHAT'S IN THIS WEEKEND:
Besides a lot of having fun together in a needle felting workshop, also being pampered for a weekend (TWO NIGHTS)
weekend is: arrival on a Friday after 4 pm, departure on a Sunday before 10 am
What does a weekend look like:
You arrive on a Friday after 4 pm.
Of course the beds are already made, the towels are there and the gite is fully furnished, even coffee and tea are included. For the wood stove there is also a package of wood available.
In the evening you can enjoy a Table d'Hote, freshly prepared with starter, main course and dessert, served in the gite.
The next morning you will receive an extensive fresh breakfast. Breakfast is between 8.00 and 9.00
After this, the first part of the workshop will start (starting at maximum at 10 a.m.), where you can choose from a number of subjects to make, such as a sheep, French cow (of course) or choose from many other options for 2D and 3D needle felting. (or come up with your own subject!), or make something different: a beautiful mobile on a wooden ring, or a scene in/on a teacup and other crockery. *
During this first part of the day, the materials and techniques are also explained.
You work with high-quality wool, such as Merino, Maori, but also Leicester, silk, etc.
At noon, as befits a good French custom, lunch will be served, of course with French delicacies and wine. This will start somewhere between 12.30 and 13.00 and end at most at 14.15
After this the needle felt needle is taken up again (if that still succeeds after the wine) and further work is done on the artwork.
There is plenty of time to try and learn extensive needle felting or to ask specific questions regarding techniques. (example: how to make a portrait)
When your work is ready, we will tension it in a ring. *
At the end of the day, another Table d'Hote is served in the gite.
The next morning you leave around maximum of 10 a.m. (this can be some time later when no booking is after yours)
Breakfast will be served in the gite in the morning before your departure. (served between 8 am and 9 am)
