creative workshops and courses


A hole can itself have as much shape-meaning as a solid mass. – Henri Moore

Being creative

Do you like to join a creative workshop one morning, afternoon or day? At La Forêt Souriante we organize weekly creative courses or (partial) dayworkshops throughout the year in addition to holiday weeks. For anyone who lives near Najac or for anyone who is on a holiday near Najac.


As a guest in one of the romantic gîtes, participating in a creative workshop is a nice addition to all the other activities you can do during your relaxing holiday at La Forêt Souriante.
