I live in the beautiful county of Herefordshire. My creative existence encompasses foraging, cooking, making and using natural dyes,  and many other seasonal activities.

I would love to share my knowledge and offer you the opportunity to reconnect with nature at my home Rough Acre, an eighteenth century farmhouse surrounded by garden and open countryside.

For me, the central and in many ways most beautiful aspect of any natural process is its dependence on the seasons. Spring, Summer and Autumn all offer different opportunities to learn different skills.

Foraging for cooking, dyeing and printing, flower arranging & wreath making as well as making face creams and flower essences are all activities we can do together. Depending on the time of year you visit me.

If you would like to focus on a particular experience I am more than happy to talk this through with you.

I have two double bedrooms with a shared bathroom. Each retreat can accommodate two single people or two couples. The total cost of the retreat is £360 each.

Meet for supper on Friday night. Breakfast, lunch and supper on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday finish 3ish. We will forage and create all day Saturday and Sunday morning. Everything you need is here – peace and quiet, comfortable bedrooms, delicious vegetarian organic food and wonderful creative endeavours.
