Try your hand at a medley of different traditional and contemporary craft projects and get ready for the festive season.
Whether you choose to focus on gifts, tree decorations, table decorations, wreaths, crackers or many other options, you will have the opportunity to make a number of small projects to give you lots of lovely ideas for your own future crafting, to decorate your home, sell online and at fairs or to give as special gifts. There will be a range of projects to try, using fabrics, felts, buttons, threads, beads, wire, powertex, papers and all sorts!
The projects are quick and simple. They take around an hour or so to make, and are intended to give you lots of ideas for the future whilst leaving you with plenty of free time to relax and explore. 🎄
Everyone is welcome from complete beginners to experienced professionals and everything in between. Our host is an experienced guide, coach and mentor with a passion for arts and crafts who will provide all equipment and materials as well as guidance and feedback.

Just attended my 2 nd weekend and it was so relaxing. Despite not knowing anyone the host was welcoming and made sure introductions were made at start so we all felt comfortable.

I have done a several weekends organised by Creative Stays and they are always well planned and great value for money. The accommodation used is always of a high standard and in some fantastic locations.

Fantastic weekend, great organisation and a really relaxed atmosphere. Take it all at your own pace, do as much or as little as you like with no pressure. Perfect!

A really well organised weekend. I loved that you could take things at your own pace, but that you got the chance to try new things too. This creative lark can become addictive very quickly! Already looking forward to booking the next one.

Loved it, this is perfect for people who think they don't have a creative bone in their body, turns out we all do, it's just a case of finding the right thing for you and your own area of creativity. I'm now hooked, a total creativity convert.

I was a little skeptical going in to this weekend as it was my friend's idea to go and I don't consider myself particularly arty, but I was made to feel very welcome and free to do as much or as little as I'd like. We had a great time, and I came home feeling rather refreshed. I think we'll be heading out for another trip soon :)

I spent my 40th birthday on one of these weekends. I was unsure as we are all creative in differing ways but due to the relaxed style we all enjoyed it equally.
