Issigeac and basket weaving in the Dordogne

Here is the wonderful bastide village of Issigeac in the Dordogne. A stunning setting with a superb market with local produce every Sunday just a 40 minute drive from Chateau Mathias.

There you will find also the atelier and shop, Les tresses de Sylvie. Sylvie works with wicker and chestnut creating wonderful objects. Everything from baskets, bowls, and bags.. to jewellery and garden furniture.

Sylvie is a fabulous teacher

Almost finished!


Some Sylvie made earlier!

Sylvie also gives courses in weaving techniques usually once every two weeks. Each course is a day long, with of course a midday break for a picnic lunch and a glass of wine or two!
We took a course there and made 2 baskets... very handy to collect all our eggs, as our hens are laying  10 eggs everyday at the moment and we cannot eat them fast enough!

Or contact Sylvie directly at or at 06 88 13 78 77
You can visit her Atelier in Issigeac at 18 rue de cardinal, 24560 Issigeac

The next course is April 29th.

Come stay at Chateau Mathias, the perfect place to base yourselves whilst discovering the wonderful Lot and Garonne and the Dordogne.
