Atelier du Réquista

In 2016 I spent five months in France working as a volunteer through the organisation Workaway. During this time, I spent a little over a week at Atelier du Réquista. Atelier du Réquista was founded by Monika Liné-Gölz and her husband in 1995, in an ancient 17th century farm building, nested in the Lot Valley in the Aveyron departement.

Without a doubt, this is one of the most wonderful places I have ever had the pleasure to visit. The region is beautiful, the old farm absolutely fairytale like and Monika an inspiration on many levels. She creates her textile jewellery and clothing in her atelier, putting positive energy into every single playful piece she makes. Her accessories offer a pop of colour to every outfit, making them ideal for women who want to liven up and personalise their business attire and of course for women who embrace colour all around.

I got to photograph a collection of cuffs, necklaces, rings, brooches and scarves and Monika herself while she was working. All the while feeling inspired by her story, her home, her work energy and her enjoyment of simple daily pleasures.
