Week 15 2021


I'm so excited to be working alongside another new female artisan.  Virginia at Atelier St Julien makes beautiful handmade soaps and skin care from her workshop just outside Eymet.  She uses organic, natural ingredients and age old techniques to produce her small batch ranges of soap, shampoo and skincare.

Virginia wanted to work with a local potter and we collaborated to make soap dishes that beautifully compliment her soaps. Each dish is wheel thrown and individually pierced, twice fired and glazed in a range of colours.  

Soap making is a slow process, each batch needs several weeks to cure and similarly, ceramics take time to make with several steps before completion.  I'm loving the collaboration.  If you want to find out more about Virginia's range of soaps and skincare, or perhaps you are looking for a local supplier for gite or B&B, then you can find her on her website or on Instagram.

Whatever you do this week in the Gironde and Dordogne region, take care, keep safe and stay at home if you can.

Best wishes,

Week 15 and coming up...🤞




 And finally...

The flowers are out in the garden, despite the frosts.
