Explore your creativity and develop your skills in the beauty of the French countryside. Bel Esprit Creative offers retreats and one- or two-week residential workshops in the arts at the Theater of the Fields in Normandy for groups looking for a European experience at the Le Théâtre des Champs, a Normandy farm restored to its original country charm with touches from historic châteaux.  

Bel Esprit Creative organizes your stay at the theater for all types of workshops: book arts, clay, fiber and textile arts, writing, music and performing arts.  Most participants stay at the farm, eating and working together in a communal atmoshere fostering the exchange of ideas.  Meals are prepared on the farm with locally and farm grown produce or prepared by local restaurants.  After classes, participants may enjoy lounging before a magnificent fireplace or at the poolside.  Local activities include exploring the town of Verneuil Sur Avre and the village of Boissy les Perche, hiking in the woods for which the village is named, or visiting the area equestrian farms.
