Time and Place

27 Sept 2023, 15:30 – 03 Oct 2023, 12:00

Chateau de Sacy, 1 Rue Verte, 60190 Sacy-le-Petit, France

What's Happening

A Self-Portrait of the Human as Nature

Over a series of morning workshops at the chateau, Gavin Turk will steer you through the making of a sculptural, slowly made and highly observed self-portrait - probably of the hand - involving modelling clay and found objects, with philosophical conversations around art, images, perception and what it is to be human in 2023 along the way.

In the afternoons, Deborah Curtis will lead drop-in botanical Illustration sessions in a mix of slow and faster drawing using watercolour paper, pencils, ink pens and watercolours. Discussions about nature and the future will feature.

All our bedrooms have a desk and there are other peaceful spaces to work in – the salon, the gardens, the barn, the new studio in the courtyard.

Exercise

We have a beautiful old barn which makes a perfect space for pre-breakfast yoga classes, run by Sacy regular Gillian Grant. These will clear your mind and prepare you for the focus of the day ahead. There will also be dancing, meditation, walks and swims at a nearby lake.

Food and DrinkFood and Drink

Meals will be largely vegetarian and Ottolenghi-inspired, healthy, locally sourced where possible and will include local cheeses and cuisine such as Ficelle Picarde. Coffee, tea, fruit and snacks will be available throughout the day. Wine will be served with dinner, some of which will be prepared and served by participants, with ingredients and recipe supplied and help at hand.

Free time

In your free time, you can walk to the Chapelle Saint Catherine, a spot visited by Joan of Arc in the nearby woods, go swimming in a lake, ride a bike to the farmshop, visit the market on Friday morning, or just soak up the atmosphere at the chateau.

Outing

Midweek, you can choose to jump on a train to see some exhibitions in Paris. Otherwise, we will visit the spectacular Chateau de Chantilly, home to many masterpieces including three Raphaels and an Ingres exhibition.
