L’ATELIER DE MO, 14 years of collaboration and inspiration in MARQUEYSSAC
The idea was born in 2008, when Monique Bardel, manager of a floral art workshop – the Atelier de Mo – in Toulouse, discovered the Jardins de Marqueyssac during a trip to Périgord. “I immediately wanted to share the emotions of this visit with my students,” she recalls. I met Jean Lemoussu, head gardener at Marqueyssac, and together we imagined adding some colour to the park for the Garden Festival, in a land-art style. The first year, we occupied unusual places and, subsequently, we were able to use the Esplanade. With her partner, Annick Viguié, Monique teaches floral art to nearly 200 students every week. “For Mo’s studio, showing our work at Marqueyssac on the first weekend in June will let us end the year on a high note and give in to our passion for an exceptional setting,” Monique continues. Here, the inspiration is rich and our creations are clearly highlighted.
This year, Monique, now retired, is leaving her place as leader to Annick, who will surely have many surprises for us!
