Creativity Abroad France Retreat

September 5-8, 2022

The Class

One of Lori’s favorite mediums is watercolor. The way the colors blend and move is wonderful! During this retreat, we will explore various watercolor techniques to create a collection of collage materials. We will then compose these images into a series of art pieces with added ephemera writing and dimensional elements. As a final touch, we will hand stitch into our works creating gorgeous “paper story quilts”.

What is included:

  • Instruction from Lori Siebert and some supplies.
  • 3 days and 4 nights full board with freshly baked continental breakfast, light salad lunch and home-made three course dinner using local, seasonal ingredients with vegetarian emphasis.
  • Local transport at a time specified (usually late afternoon) from and to Bergerac airport (approx.  1hr 15 minute drive) or Angoule’me tranin station (approx. 40 minute drive). Taxi transport outside collection times can be arranged at an additional cost depending on numbers.
  • A half-bottle of wine per person at dinner, chosen by Michael Armitage of the Interesting Wine Club.
