Bonjour! I’m Dayle Doroshow, the workshop coordinator and hostess for LaCascade artist retreat center in southern France. I have been a professional jeweler and teacher since 1994 and have shown my jewelry and taught workshops across the United States. La Cascade has been a part of my life since 2003 when I first helped Gwen Gibson put the final touches on her beautiful artist retreat house. I

’ve taught yearly workshops here since 2004 and it has truly been the highlight of each year. I have also enjoyed hosting workshops for the last five years. As your hostess I will be there to welcome you on Arrival day and help you and your group get settled in. I’ll meet with you all to share the La Cascade story and to give you a walking tour of our charming village. I’ll also have the week’s special events (flea markets, concerts, the regional Saturday market), favorite places to go, and maps to help you find your way around our charming area. Each day I’ll check in to make sure all is well and to answer any questions.

I am so happy to be a part of the La Cascade team and look forward to sharing magical experiences with you all.
