Weavers’ Group Package (April/May and Sept/Oct)
Weaving together is a lot of fun. And even better is taking a few days away from home and relaxing in the beautiful countryside and warm weather of south-west France.
Here in the heart of Gascony, with its fab food and delicious wines, you can come to sample the delights of the area and learn new techniques in the company of your weaving friends.
With a minimum of 5 weavers and a maximum of 9 (extra accommodation in a nearby gite), you can take a 3-day weaving course with Stacey Harvey-Brown at her home studio near the historic town of Nérac, mid-way between Bordeaux and Toulouse. You will be wined and dined by Stacey and her husband, Graham, and have 3 full days of weaving, followed by a day for you to explore the area, with the option of adding a couple of extra days to unwind in Nérac, subject to accommodation availability.
For 5 – 9 people, the cost per person is:
- non-sharing – €490 each (roughly £430 subject to currency rates)
- sharing a room – €475 each (roughly £415 subject to currency rates)
The cost covers a core of 5 nights – a 4 night/3 day workshop full-board (Sun – Wed), and 1 additional night B&B (Thurs). There is an optional extension of 2 nights, accommodation only, subject to availability (see table below).
