I recently returned from France where I had the most amazing time teaching two workshops at both locations of La Maison Pernoise. The first in the sleepy village of Pernes les fountaines and the second in Montpellier, a city I had never been before! We sneaked a few days in Cassis prior to the workshops to explore the breathtaking natural beauty of the Calanques.
The second workshop took place at the fantastic enclave of Marché du Lez, a cluster of eclectic shops and restaurants and the newly opened La maison Pernoise deux! The owner Lau has the most incredible taste and a great eye for interiors, it was really lovely to see her second store brought to life in such a wonderful space.
The Indigo workshop was a great success, participants were kind as always, gracious about my lack of French speaking skills! I met a wonderfully talented lady called Nha Ha who brought along some of her amazing handwork to show us. She also shared some pure Indigo that she had picked up on a trip to Vietnam which I will use to create Organic Indigo Vat & I will be posting that up here soon ( thank you Nha Ha).
Travelling to France to teach was wonderful & reignited my desire to bring my workshops to as many beautiful places as possible. If you know of a good town or city where people might be interested in this kind of thing or if you think you could gather a group together let me know. I would love to teach in all the great cities of Europe & I'm hoping I can cross a few off my list in the year to come. xo
