Sensory Watercolour and Aromatic Lavender Sachet Workshops at the Lavender Museum

The Lincelé family at the Lavender Museum has plenty of ideas for interesting and fun new ways of enjoying the emblematic flower of Provence. This year, visiting groups can take part in hands-on sensory workshops and take home their own fragranced watercolour, or a lavender sachet they’ve made themselves to inject a bit of Provençal freshness into their linen cupboards!

The Luberon is made even more attractive, with these new activities for 2019 dreamed up by the lavender-growing Lincelé family that runs the Lavender Museum in Coustellet, near Gordes.

Sensory Watercolour Workshop

Awaken all your senses in this workshop run by a professional! Working with the faculties of touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing, participants start by assessing their olfactory sensitivity. Then they conceive and create a perfumed watercolour painting using pigments combined with natural essences – a totally new experience! This innovative journey into the realm of the senses and their interconnectedness will stimulate your memory and get your creative juices flowing. What’s more, the setting is lovely, with an old-style school classroom atmosphere and views over a lavender field.
