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
- Yarn Craft
- The Art of Photography
Heaven for any creative.

I went on this retreat with my Mum! It was absolutely amazing; the glamping tent was super cute and the art sessions were so well done. Rachel is super accommodating and flexible with what you want to do and learn. We chose Beginners Crochet, which we did in Rachel’s cosy lounge with cups of tea, Drawing, Enamelling and two sessions of Book Binding; all done in Rachel’s amazing art studio. Each class was incredibly well taught; she is fab at working at both mine and my mum’s speeds and learning styles, also we were given lots of creative choices and came home with goodie bags of craft supplies and things we’d made! My fave was Enamelling, it was really fun and unusual, the colour changing and experimentation meant we took home lots of charms and jewellery; which Rachel helped us add chains and parts too from her hoards of craft supplies. Added to the brilliant classes was that outside of our allotted times we could go and use the studio to practice, do our own crafting, or if you are me, sit and revel in the art studio I dream of having whilst sipping tea. Oh and there’s tea; so much tea.
I highly recommend this retreat, if you are creative and want to learn new skills, or just need to work on one skill in particular, contact Rachel as she is well versed in all crafts and I’m sure she can help!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much. It was an amazing week and I was so impressed with all you did. And I learnt so much from you too with your amazing job and personal skills. Thanks so much for taking the time and so much thought and effort writing reviews. It really means so much.
Spent a week at the retreat learning new crafts from the amazing Rachel. Several people have tried to teach me to crochet, but only Rachel succeeded! I am now crocheting a bee! I enjoyed all the crafts we tried and the time flew by! Rachel is very accommodating and her knowledge is endless.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much Heather. I knew you’d be able to crochet! Well done. Love to see a picture of the bee!
