Kate and Mollie are two artists living in the beautiful, unspoilt rolling landscape of the Gers, a rural department nestling at the foot of the Pyrenees. Both are renowned artists as well as good friends. They share a passion for Art, the landscape and sharing their combined knowledge.

They invite you to a 5 day Creative Retreat based on the principle of exploration and investigation. Through the techniques of Mixed Media, Print Making and Ceramics they have designed a course that allows individuals to explore nature in a very elemental and material based way. Mixing print with clay, ink with bleach, paint with pastels and collage with charcoal, prepare to fill your sketchbooks with the beautiful and the unexpected.

 Creative Walks in Gascony led by myself and Jonathan Peat. We are offering a day of inspirational and mindful walking, using our senses to explore the beautiful landscape and our mind to reflect and find connections. Spiritual readings, gentle yoga and meditation followed by a gourmet picnic of local and organic produce. The afternoon is focused on creative exploration, ink resist, bleach tinting and cyanotype printing all under the shade of the trees. The day is completed with reflection and discussions over tea and homemade cake.

TESTIMONIALS

"Mollie's art classes are a revelation...She is generous with her time and is always ready to give feedback. She has adapted her course from face to face to on-line and makes a fun quarter of an hour around a 'tip' every Friday evening, when we get to 'see' other members of the course. The weekly tasks are such a help and we are well rewarded by our efforts".
