Textile Landscapes, Drawing with Fabric and Thread
9th – 16th June 2019
I had always wanted to learn how to create a landscape using textiles so was delighted to join Carol’s class at Les Carroz. I was not disappointed. Carol is a very patient tutor who spent time helping us plan and draw out our designs individually. She gave clear instructions as we began sewing our piece and encouraged us throughout the week. She was very well prepared for the course. She had taken time to study the photos we had sent her and enlarge the important elements. She brought a wide variety of fabrics for us to use and supplied all equipment we needed. I learned so much from my week’s tuition and was very pleased with my finished piece. I really had a fabulous time. Doreen
I had a terrific week on Carol Arnott’s course at Les Carroz. Carol delivered her technique in a wonderfully simplistic way showing that almost anything goes, and that the final outcome is always successful. She started off introducing her technique by giving everyone the same project and then we developed on to our individual pieces. This was extremely successful and most enjoyable. It was informative and fun. Everyone on the course had produced two lovely scenes by the end of the week. We had a great time. The course was very well organised and the staff were incredibly friendly. The meals provided were exceptional, having been prepared by two chefs who are obviously trained to a very high standard.

My Mother, Daughter and I had a wonderful week at The Alpine Experience with the amazing Carol Arnott on a picture embroidery week in July. We had wonderful meals, lovely accommodation and superb hosts along with a whole bunch of new friends we had fun with all week. All in a truly stunning location. The week flew by and we would all really love to come back again. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Beryl, Heather and Holly.
“I cannot imagine a better teacher than Carol – she’s inspirational, endlessly patient and full of gentle but effective encouragement. As well as the chance to immerse myself in her unique and deceptively simple technique, I loved seeing the many different variations the class came up with – all of them stunning! I loved every minute of this workshop and it has taught me to look at the world around me through different eyes.” LM
