Feutre & Art Textile avec Ariane Mariane

Convivialité & Apprentissage Professionnel

I’m pleased to welcome students from all over the world to my art studio in the western suburbs of Paris (Achères).  I’m running my workshops in three languages: French, English and German.

At only 30 minutes by train from inner Paris, I offer creative holidays as well as professional training  in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
My felt and textile art workshops are open and tailored to all levels.

With a background of more than 15 years in art and graphic design, my aim is to guide you in your personal approach of fascinating textile techniques. I love sharing my knowledge in traditional and modern techniques and will help you find your own personal expression!

Techniques & accompagnement personnel

Mes stages de feutre et d’expérimentations textiles  sont conçus en deux parties. Dans un premier temps, nous aborderons l’aspect technique à travers un ou deux exercices imposés. Ensuite je vous accompagne à votre rythme et selon vos besoins dans votre projet personnel afin de donner forme à vos idées. A la fin de l’atelier vous repartirez avec votre création et de précieux savoir-faire.

J’exerce depuis plus de 15 ans dans l’art et le graphisme textile. Au fil des années, je me suis appropriée plusieurs techniques ancestrales et modernes à partir desquels j’ai pu développer une approche très personnelle. Fort de cette expérience, je peux vous aider à trouver votre propre «écriture » et vous permettre de réaliser des œuvres d’art textile qui vous ressemblent.

Créativité & Imagination

In my eyes, one of the most precious human qualities is our creativity and imagination. Experimenting our creativity allows us to be more balanced  in everyday life. Generally creative people face life with a more joyful attitude.

The second part of my workshops is all about this: helping you finding access or affirme your creativity through creative fun and technical mastering.

You will go home with an original creation, technical know-how but foremost all, with lots of new ideas and a higher confidence in your abilities and your unique imagination.
