About Last Summer: Chateau Dumas

Here is a gallery of photos from my two weeks at Chateau Dumas in Auty, France, last summer. Auty is in the southwest, about an hour from Toulouse. Most of these shots are of the chateau, but there are also a few of the nearby village of St. Antonin Noble Val.  Week 1 was indigo and shibori dyeing with Jane Callender. Week 2 was textile collage with Mandy Patullo. In addition to our classes at the chateau, we took a couple of field trips (including St. Antonin Noble Val) and spent a day doing woad dyeing. Lizzie Hulme, the proprietor of the chateau, is planning to post the schedule for next summer in November. I happen to know a few of the instructors who will be on it. Very special! Very highly recommended! I am already dreaming of going back.
