Welcome to Le Jardin Créatif
Based in the Haute Vienne, Limousin, Le Jardin Créatif has been open since March 2018 offering exciting short courses and workshops in sculpture and natural crafts, horticulture and gardening, stained glass, metalwork and floral arts. Open Saturdays March- end of October 10am-4pm for nursery & garden visits. Courses are held Monday – Saturdays. Closed on Sundays.
Our nursery & garden are open every Saturday from early March until the end of October from 10am-4pm and for customers who come for workshops and courses on the day of the course.
Due to the ever-changing situation over recent years, for the time being we are mainly offering courses on request (for individuals and groups of less than 4 people we will advertise the extra places to fill the course) or we are taking ‘Bubble Group’ bookings for up to 6 or 7 people- please get in touch if you would like us to put on any of our workshops for you or your group: CONTACT
Courses: Throughout the year we run half day, full day and two day courses covering topics and activities including willow weaving, willow sculpture, greenwood crafts, chicken wire sculpture, plant propagation, pruning skills, botany, eco-printing, stained glass, wreath making, specialist plant cultivation, grafting and caring for your orchard among many other subjects.

Plant Nursery & Garden: We have a small nursery ‘La Petite Pépinière de La Guinandie’ where we grow and sell herbaceous perennials, cottage garden plants, herbs, ornamental edibles, dye plants, grasses, veg plants etc from our own nursery. Our garden is open to nursery customers when the nursery is open; Saturdays between March and end of October 10.00-16.00 we can open the nursery on weekdays by prior appointment only- but please check with us well in advance that we are here/available before coming.

Please get in touch if you or your group are interested in consultancy, a bespoke course or private tuition on any horticultural subject – we are open to suggestions – and are happy to come out to your garden club to do talks, demonstrations and bespoke courses.
Staying in the Region/Holiday activities: If you would like to visit the region and stay nearby so that you can join one of our courses or workshops during your holiday or need somewhere to stay over if you have a long travel, we have linked up with some local gîtes and B&B owners that we can recommend.
