Normandy Weaving Retreat


Come and spend 3 days with us at our French studio in St Fraimbault, a beautiful Normandy village, famous for it’s wonderful flower displays.

You will find time to relax, walk in the beautiful French countryside, explore freeform weaving techniques on SAORI looms under the guidance of mixed-media artist and SAORI weaving instructor Amanda Edney. Taking inspiration from your surroundings, you will make your own warp and weave your own unique cloth, incorporating your own ‘treasures’ which help tell your story.

You will be encouraged to explore your inner child, express your natural creativity and discover your artist’s voice.

This is a wonderful opportunity to take time out and enjoy the space and environment to be your most creative self.
