Artist Retreat in the Shropshire Hills - 5 Days & 5 Nights - One to One
Totally spoil yourself with this indulgent 5 day, 5 night retreat in the heart of The Shropshire Hills. Each day you will have a one to one session with Rachel, followed by a studio session to practice and explore in your own time with the studio to yourself. Then an evening by the campfire and a night glamping (in a gorgeous bell tent in the summer or our fab retro caravan in the winter). The retreat will be tailored to your experience and requirements from beginners to advanced techniques. During the retreat you could explore a different skill each day, concentrate on one discipline throughout the week or somewhere in between including: - Pewter Casting - Bookbinding - Enamelling - Printing - Drawing - Felting - Painting - Yarn Craft - The Art of Photography - Sketchbooking - Foiling - Engraving - Batik Heaven for any creative. This workshop is a guaranteed one to one session so that I can tailor the workshop to your interests and needs as an individual. You can achieve so much this way. Develop skills to start a new business, take up a new hobby or craft for the joy of it … I can ensure the day progresses the way you want it to. A one-night self-catering stay is available for free with this booking in our onsite retro caravan (subject to availability). Please enquire. All courses, workshops and kits come with free support afterwards. Email me or arrange a video call. I love to see what my students and fellow crafters are up to and really enjoy answering questions or helping if I can. So any booking isn’t just for the day it’s the start of a crafting friendship! I do my very best to keep all my listings up to date with availability. Unfortunately, at busy periods there can be a delay so if there is a specific date you need, please feel free to check before booking to avoid disappointment.

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
