Knit Retreat - 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 time to practice and explore in your own time either in the studio or your cosy accommodation. You'll have all the yarn and kit you need for your sessions and extras to practice. And the kettle is always on! 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. Maybe you have tried to learn before, you are left handed, you like learning in person, you want to take your knitting to the next level or you'd just like a lovely, crafty week away! It may include all or some of the following as well as other goals or ideas you might want to explore: - casting on, knit and pearl - increasing, decreasing - problem solving - decorative stitches - working flat, in the round, in 3D - intarsia - reading patterns - adapting patterns - converting patterns - designing your own pieces 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. 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!
