Join Us this summer in beautiful southern France for an intimate master class with artist Jeffrey Lloyd Dever.

La Cascade, Gwen Gibson’s lovingly renovated 17th century summer home and studio, is the venue for our retreat. Located in the medieval village of Durfort, between the beautiful Black Mountains and pastoral fields of golden sunflowers, the surrounding area offers an array of activities from hiking to trolling quaint shops and flea markets, or touring nearby ancient villages.

Our own international chef will prepare delicious meals that we’ll savor together, perhaps on the terrace, as we listen to the mountain stream and waterfall beyond.

So come feed your soul and your head in this beautiful French setting. Good food, good friends and a creative feast are sure to be part of this unique opportunity.

The cost for this week-long retreat is $1,950 U.S. and includes...

  • 7 days and 7 nights accommodations on site at La Cascade
  • All on site meals prepared by our own chef
  • 5 days of instructions and open studio access
  • Materials unique to Jeff ’s techniques will be provided. A list of personal
    tools and materials to bring will be sent to each registered attendee.
