I am a photogrpaher/artist, and I have 2 daughters, one a photographer at Studio Harcourt in Paris and the youngest at art school in Brighton UK. We are (slowly) restoring an old coaching house in Bourgogne, creating a centre for visual and performing arts.
IN THESE MAD TIMES. In addition to other work on the house, my eldest daughter and I are setting up a tearoom gallery in nearby Saint Sauveur en Puisaye. We will always welcome help with baking and serving and cleaning, but for now we are creating the space and ALL that involves. Looking for energetic people who can help with painting, DIY, cleaning, restoring, baking. It's a small space with a terrace and a courtyard and happens to be in the hippest place in the region!! We hope to open in May this year.
