2 or 4 days of creative loveliness in rural North Pennines
Nature-themed Creative Retreats
Crafty retreats in the beautiful rural North Pennines!
Join me for one of our 2 or 4 day creative retreats.
They all have a Nature theme, and include a walk in the local woods and countryside for inspiration.
Our 4 day retreat is held in June, and includes a variety of techniques and skills, including eco dyeing and crocheting.
Our 2 day retreats are held in Jul - Oct, where each retreat has a specific technique, including eco dyeing, flower pounding, applieque and landscape stitching
Retreats are held once a month, and alternate between mid week and weekends.

All creative fun is held in the large, main room of this old miners and farmers cottage.
The room is the oldest in the house, and was built in 1750. The thick walls of the house ensure that it remains cool in summer and warm in winter. We're off-grid, and predominantly use solar and wind for our power.
Each retreat will only have up to 6 people, making sure it remains friendly and personal
Accommodation is comprised of a double (or twin) room in the main house, and a double and single room in the Annex. Accommodation is provided on a first come first served bases.
