ART OF WRITING AFTERNOON TEA WORKSHOP
Discover and develop your creativity with words and enjoy an afternoon’s revelry of easy refinement with a delightful Afternoon High Tea at The Lounge at Le Richemond. The legendary Le Richemond introduces a series of The Art of Writing workshops inspired by the French author Colette who penned the Blue Lantern at the hotel from 1946-1947.
The workshops are taught by Susan Tiberghien, an American writer living in Switzerland who has published three memoirs and most recently a handbook on writing. The Art of Writing workshops are open to everyone who is looking to awaken their creative voice and sharpen their writing skills.
The workshops will be conducted in English, with French translation as necessary. Guests of all ages from teens to adults are invited to attend and enjoy a traditional afternoon high tea complete with finger sandwiches, scones, homemade pastries and a selection of tea, coffee or hot chocolate.
The Art of Writing workshop is available during the calendar dates mentioned below and is priced at 49 CHF per person. Make it an effervescent Afternoon High Tea with a glass of Prosecco priced at an additional 10 CHF.
