Join us for an immersive and relaxing week and learn to upholster a beautiful item for your home.
It doesn’t matter if you are a complete beginner, with over twenty years of experience Stuart will guide and support you through learning the tools and techniques of upholstery.
Studio Artisan is an exciting new project founded by Stuart and Rachel, linked to the Oxford School of Upholstery now in its third decade of teaching both Modern and Traditional Upholstery in the UK.
Studio Artisan brings the opportunity of learning the traditional skills of upholstery in the tranquil environment of The Perigord Vert in Central France. Set in the Chapel of the 13th Century petit Chateau Gros Puy, offering a unique mix of simplicity and grandeur.
Take the opportunity to slow down and take a breath, while creating that special chair to cherish for generations to come.
Le petit Chateau Gros Puy is owned and run by Zak and her family, the chateau offers 4 letting bedrooms for further information check out https://www.chateaugrospuy.com
The duration of your stay will be Sunday through to Thursday although, if you would like you can arrange with Zak to extend your stay. Your course will be Monday to Thursday, with a break on Wednesday morning to visit the local market, one of the best in the region.
There will be plenty of time after an industrious day to wander in the woods and relax with a swim in the nearby lakes or to have drinks in the pretty villages of the surrounding area.
