3 day rural, mixed craft retreat with a nature theme



A 3 day retreat full of crafty goodness!
Choose from one of 6 retreats monthly May - Oct with a mixture of weekends and mid week. All have a nature theme. There are three programmes - see below- including everything from applique, to crochet, to silver jewellery making!

Enjoy good company, food and cake in a beautiful remote environment. Oh - and some craft too! All the crafts are based on the theme of nature. A walk in the woods one morning will inspire us.

The projects include:
Programme 1 (May and Sept) - handmade loom weaving with recycled sari silk, appliqué flowers and flower scene, flower pounding and felt coasters
Programme 2 (June and Aug) - Eco dyed yarn - and crocheted flower scene using the yarn, macrame feathers and daisies, and wire craft animals
Programme 3 (July and October) - Dorset buttons, silver clay pendant, air dry clay coaster, a book craft hedgehog and a mosaic landscape scene!

Join a friendly and informal group of people - maximum 6 people - for a fun and creative weekend. All meals are included, except for one night, to give you the chance to explore the local area's eateries. There will be lots of tea and cake!

The price quoted is without accommodation, to give you flexibility.
If you'd like to stay at the Hill Top Haven Retreat, we have the following available on a B&B basis:
Double ensuite room in the main house (£75/night) - this can be converted into a twin if you want to share the room with a friend/your sister/your Mum.
Smaller double room in the Annex (£65/night) and a single room in the Annex (£55/night). The two rooms in the Annex share a bathroom.
These rooms are on a first come, first served basis - they are closed off to general public booking so as to be available for this retreat. If you'd like to book, please message me via the 'message the tutor' button.
Alternatively, if you'd prefer to find your own accommodation, but still join the retreat, you're welcome to do so.

There are a maximum of 6 places available for the retreat.
All diets and allergies are catered for.
Groups are welcome. Please do contact me. Groups of 4 or more booking get a 5% discount.
Please note that I'm holding 6 craft retreats in 2022, with 3 different sets of crafts, so if this is fully booked, you want to try something different, or you want to try them all, carry on looking at the other dates!
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me, via the 'message the tutor' button.

Reserving your spot via this 'ticketed' event requires you to pay in full on booking.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 8 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Everything except 1 of the evening meals, where I'd encourage you to sample the local culinary delights!
