Join us for a memorable creative journey…

The Textile Retreat Company has a unique and wonderful programme of Tours and Retreats to offer anyone who loves textiles. 

Led by the experienced team at Chateau Dumas  who’ve run creative workshops in France for the past 14 years,  the Textile Retreat Company bring their insider knowledge of artists and venues to an original programme of carefully curated textile-themed Retreats and Tours in Britain.

On a creative Retreat you’ll find yourself working alongside a leading textile artist in a supportive and intimate environment within a beautiful setting.  Our Retreats are held in well-appointed and beautiful old English country houses with a private chef to prepare meals and a friendly team to look after you each day.   Trips might include a visit a garden, a pretty historic village, a local artist studio or a place of interest to textile enthusiasts.

There is usually at least one creative session included in our Tours but the real focus is on introducing you to the work of prominent textile artists, both present and past, and allowing you to examine and explore their work first-hand through a series of private visits and behind the scene tours.    You’ll stay in a stylish hotel and join daily visits to artists studios, private exhibitions, museum collections and other venues of interest.

Whether you choose to join a Retreat or a Tour you’ll be able to indulge your passion for textiles and share your unique experience with like-minded people.   We look forward to seeing you soon.

We are also able to arrange bespoke Retreats and Tours on behalf of private groups and companies.   Please get in touch if you would like to talk to us about residential breaks in Britain with a textile theme.
