The Medieval Chapel Studio for Creative Art & Textile Courses
Welcome to La Chapelle d'Escrimis. If you are searching for a very special creative break, then we hope you will find it here with us at Escrimis.
Our wonderfully restored Medieval 'Templar' chapel is the most perfect location for idyllic creative courses set amongst the stunning rolling countryside of the Gers Region in South-West France.
There are no problems with mass tourism here; in fact, it is one of France's least populated regions. The beauty of the landscape with its lush green vineyards and sunflowers fields compliment the fascinating historic architecture of the medieval fortified villages and historic towns.
The extensive renovation of the chapel is now completed, and our new venture begins this year. The chapel will be used as a totally unique atelier (studio) for visiting artists and creative people. Whether you are an artist, or you work in textiles and needlework, you will find this a perfect location.
In Spring and Autumn of each year we will be offering a limited number of art and textile courses, every one of which will feature a series of outstanding and inspirational tutors.
The atelier is also available to visiting art groups organising their own 'art tours' and for location photography.
We hope our photo galleries will entice you to join us. Click on an image for a larger view.
