We then Prepare the base from wet clay, you will need to handle the clay at this point! Preparation is the key! I now talk through suitable frames and we prepare All equipment needed.

  • Identity verified
I am an international botanical artist and designer, mother and wife. I moved to France 15 years ago with my husband and two Children to experience the good life. I run my art business Uniquekr8ivity and our Gite LaCachettebretagne from our beautiful home in Bretagne, France. I have always had a strong interest in art and gardening, so when the children grew up, I leapt at the opportunity to combine my two great passions. Uniquekr8ivity was then born. I have been running bas-relief courses for the past 3 years ever since my studio was built.

Where you'll be

The course takes place in my workshop & studio in Le Ferre, Bretagne, France. It forms part of a beautifully restored 17 century stone barn with its own turret, and is connected to our gite which is where you would stay if you are on a residential course.
