Come join me in my studio in Sainte Adele (1 hour from Montreal) for a full day of crafting, a little hike in nature, and a yummy picnic lunch in an idyllic setting. The studio is located in Usine Rolland- an incredible old paper factory that is being converted to artist spaces. The building borders the Rivière du Nord with its rushing waterfalls and is part of 80 acres of bucolic land with rolling hills and old apple trees. The spot is so beautiful- I'm so excited for you to discover what made me fall in love with it here.

In addition to operating my clothing line for the last 20 years, I've picked up a lot of other skills that I would love to share with you. The group size will be 3 people maximum as I want to offer a really special and personalized experience, in a casual and friendly environment. All skill levels welcome. I will guide you through whichever project you choose, and it will be more about play and exploration rather than perfectionism and precision. You will definitely be able to finish the projects to take home, however! I just want it to be more about the journey rather than the destination, hehe. I personally find working with my hands super meditative and relaxing, and I would love to share this with others.

This is the itinerary (can be changed if you are a group of three friends booking...I can work around your schedule):

9:30 am: Arrival at studio. Coffee & snacks. Discuss projects.

10 am- Craft #1 of your choosing (see list below)

12 noon- nature hike (easy, not too many hills, but let me know if you have mobility issues I can come up an alternative)

12:30 picnic style lunch (will be locally sourced as much as possible, vegetarian and vegan options are available)

1:30 - Craft #2 of your choosing (see list below)

4:00 Finish! Go home with new skills!


Craft options:

SEWING - Quilted pillowcase with zipper 

SEWING- crewneck sweatshirt

SEWING- T-shirt

SEWING- Quilted tote bag 

TUFTING- create a small rug (30" x 30") (I suggest you sketch it on paper before the workshop so that you have enough time to finish the rug)

BASKETWEAVING- learn basic basketweaving techniques and make a small basket.

    SCREENPRINTING- send me a black and white image before your workshop and I will prepare the screen for you (emulsion). Your project will be to print on fabric that you will sew into a tote bag.


    Please leave a valid email address when you checkout and I will get in touch with you to discuss which crafts you'd like to do, and if you have any dietary restrictions.
