Immerse yourself in the natural world and wild alchemy on a creative seasonal retreat.

This is a special time in my studio, kitchen and garden, where we can share our love of nature.

Working with natural materials I will guide you through a myriad of processes including natural dying and printing with foraged gatherings and using fresh blooms to make face cream.

These intimate retreats can accommodate up to 4 people ( we have two double bedrooms) and whilst the time of year will determine what is made the items you return home with might include printed silk, beeswax wrap, flower remedy, a seasonal preserve or wreath. The two day retreat is spacious enough to answer all your questions and allow your inner creativity to blossom.

The cost of the retreat is £325 per person and includes all meals, refreshments, materials and accommodation. We meet for supper on Friday and finish after lunch on Sunday.

The next retreat is on the Friday 15th – Sunday 17th October
