Tap Into Your Creative Side With An Artsy DIY Vacation To France!

Looking for a new travel adventure? Try a trip to France and develop a new do-it-yourself (DIY) skill! Learn to make beautiful polymer clay jewelry with artist Sarah Shriver in her Colors & Patterns of France workshop. Class size is limited so you will have individual attention. Or, if you are a sewing enthusiast, sign up for the Paris Couture Tour with Susan Khalje (you can even see some of Susan's couture techniques in the new issue of Threads Magazine)! You will get a "behind the scenes" look at couture selling. Spend time in the archives of France's most historic fabric house, attend private lectures at Paris' "premiere vintage clothing resource," experience hands-on instruction at Lesage, the legendary French embroidery house and experience a draping session with couture master, Julien Cristofoli. So what are you waiting for? Your inner DIY is calling - start planning your dream trip to France! Also, don't forget to check out the slideshow for some examples of claymaster Sarah Shriver's handmade jewelry pieces!
