Fantastique French Textile Retreat in Paris
Paris is tantalising, tempting and hard to resist, and is the superb backdrop for Teena Hughes' week-long textile adventure encompassing silk painting workshops and exploring the hidden arrondissements (districts) far from the tourist crowds.
The first evening will be spent enjoying a Champagne Cruise on the River Seine, followed by dinner in a delightfully typical French bistro.
Morning workshops are held in a private studio, and afternoons are spent meandering through ancient cobblestoned streets to find little treasures, drinking coffee or wine in sidewalk cafés, and getting to know the locals. A visit to a textile museum and a fashion parades also form part of the package, which includes accommodation (full details on the webpage).
The next annual Silk Painting Adventure in Paris hosted by Teena Hughes is from 27th June to 4th July, 2010.
Teena's Handpainted Silk Clothing Collection and Interior Design Collection are well-known for their vibrant colours and sumptuous silks. When website visitors and clients comment on the abundance of vibrant colour, Teena explains she learnt to paint on silk in Paris many years ago, and continues to use the ancient techniques to ensure the quality of her textile designs.
During the week Teena shows you the Paris she has come to love over the past 30 years, and before you know it you'll feel like a local. (One-Day Adventures are also available.) Join Teena to explore and discover the hidden Paris, and have lots of fun and laughter along the way. For more information please sign up at http://www.a-
