I hope this gives you a flavour of what my students at Chateau Dumas have been doing this week. Lots of textile collage used in different ways. What talented students.

Quilts and Donkeys

CI have managed to purchase two french quilts since I have been here at Chateau Dumas and am busy unpicking them in spare moments as I can't get them in to my suitcases in their current state. 
On Sunday I also spotted a donkey wearing a very similar piece of the yellow quilt under his saddle. Must be the fashion round here!! I also like his accompanying blue headscarf and am going to try this colour scheme myself.

French Tapestries

Beautiful  tapestries at Montpezat-de-Quercy near to Chateau Dumas where I am teaching for two weeks.
