South of France ~ Magical Floral Design & Styling Retreat: September 27 - October 4, 2018  Durfort, France

Paula Coleman, Master Stylist, invites you on a magical journey to the South of France in the Fall of 2018

Join me in the French Countryside for a magical week of creativity; open-air floral arranging with locally foraged greenery & blooms, creating bouquets, flower crowns, fine art botanical prints,  curating French inspired florals, photographing & capturing your creations, cultivating community with other creative people, and taking part in the relaxed French way of life. 

The retreat will be hosted in a lovely, 400 year-old French country house located an hour south of Toulouse, among fields, small villages, a river waterfall, and ancient towns. In this setting we will deeply experience the charm of France. Fostering limitless creativity and inspiration in a slow living environment. 

We will begin our journey in Toulouse and travel south to the tiny village of Durfort. Here we will offer creative workshops focused on florals, nature, styling, & scent. Including making your own custom essential oils. There will also be ample time for you to create, explore, indulge, shop, rest, journal, and renew your spirit. 

There will be time to explore surrounding villages & markets, and dine with new friends. France is full of culture, charm, mystique and this is the perfect time to savor a bit of local life. With our setting next to a river, we will forage the grounds for creative inspiration to be used in workshops. We will also visit a French Market in Revel, considered the prettiest in all of France, as we shop for vessels & treasures to use in our creations. 

We will capture and document our journey, and photograph each attendees creations ~ these photos will be yours to use in your portfolio, and they will serve you well for years to come. We will have our lovely French model wearing and modeling the creations of each attendee, in a stylized photoshoot. We plan to eat well and dine under the stars. Dinners prepared by our own private chef of the freshest local ingredients...and always plenty of French wine served with Dinner! Through retreat, creative workshops, good food, and fellowship, there will be a harmonious balance of inspiration, rest, and rejuvenation. 

More details of our upcoming journey and itinerary will be available very soon, as the plans are coming together now! To ensure the journey will be enlightening for everyone,we like to keep the trip intimate in size, and attendance is limited to 12 participants.
