Maison Salvadore

weekend ateliers



For 2019, Salvadore is pleased to launch a series of weekend packages for those looking for private retreats. These ateliers draw on our ethos that the more engaged we are with the fabrication of our everyday things, the more enjoyable life is. The relationships that we build with daily objects are often overlooked but, at Salvadore, we believe these are deeply intimate ones worth nurturing and celebrating.

Spanning from Friday to Sunday on dates of your choosing (subject to availability), the programmes have been designed to facilitate creativity through re-engagement with the natural world and by being creators of our immediate environments.

We have limited dates available from March - October, please inquire for your preferred dates. Price start from 185 euro pp including accommodation (see further details below).

Textiles - natural dyed linens

At Salvadore, guests sleep on pillow cases we make from reclaimed linen, one of the first fibers that peoples made into cloth, a material that touches our skin and speaks to us of the past. We share with you our process with you. Starting from salvaged antique sheets, we then explore ancient techniques working with natural dyes, such as indigo and cochineal. You can work on pillowcases, drawstring bags or other simple items of your choosing. We have a high quality sewing machines and everything else you need to make some beautiful pieces.

Ceramics - burnished vessels

We have a rustic and traditional approach to working with clay which we believe is deeply grounding. This is an opportunity to work on a vessel (or object of your choosing) to explore ancient techniques of burnishing with natural materials such as honey and wax(techniques to make your item non- porous without using glazes) This method allows us to do a single electric firing on the Saturday night, or wood firing on the Sunday morning, depending on weather or preferences. You will make a pot that glows with warmth.

Homemade natural cosmetics

In the bathrooms here you will find natural cosmetics that use essential oils and organic ingredients produced in the region. We share our experience with you to show you how to make lotions and potions combining local know how and centuries old recipes that have been handed down to us.  We have everything on hand for you to make simple body and face oils, masks and liquid soaps, follow some of our recipes or invent your own and work on a range of remedial and nourishing products to last you for months after your stay.
