A Return to France / Recherchez a France

I will be returning to France for another magical week at the Chateau Dumas next summer! I have decided on teaching an in - depth 3 part class involving designing, binding, writing and illustrating your own book. I would like to take our group into the sunflower fields, through the hill town of Mont Pezat, and through the market town of Cassaude, each person with pen and paper, to record for themselves the visual feast of France. I will give each student personal attention in basic drawing and writing, and also bookbinding. Kaari will guide us through all the best flea markets, lavender fields and brocantes.
Here is a picture of Monica wearing the crown she made....and also, a picture of what she found at the flea market - an old painting, fabric treasures, books, antique plates, vintage linens, and a wonderful old burnt orange suitcase to bring it all home in.
It will be a return to paradise for all of us!
If anyone is interested in joining us, please go to Kaari's website: , for more information. Merci!

Wendy, Hello it's Eliza in Santa Fe,
Do you know where this comes from?:

May The Spirit Awaken,
May the Bird be set free.
May the Door Never Close
Between You and Me.

Is it yours?

Thanks, Eliza Baer
