Penny Austen Vlieger opens her sewing atelier on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, from 14.00 to 17.00
The Atelier is equipped with several sewing machines, over lockers and embellishing machines –
You can also buy fabrics and haberdashery for all your sewing projects, embroidery, patchwork, quilting etc.
You are welcome to pop into the Atelier and have a look at what we are doing, and have a cup of tea or coffee with us -
We also organize « workshops » in our Atelier, using our materials and equipment. Generally these are inspired by the colours and materials around us here in the Dordogne.
The workshops include sewing, embroidery, craft and textile work.
This year we have a workshop led by professional tutors, “The Colours of the Périgord” workshop, from May 19 to May 26 (Now SOLD out) – which will include free machine embroidery, rust work, use of geli pads and art materials – inspired by the colours of the stonework, caves, Lascaux and rich colours of the vegetation.
Later on in this year (2018) we have a FREE-WEAVING WORKSHOP, which will be a Fibre Arts workshop in experimental weaving & interlacing as an art form.
These courses are held in English.
Places remain available for this workshop - please see following pages for full details and examples !
