Retreat Workshops

We have a wonderful selection of workshops available during the retreat. More workshop options are being added – watch this space for updates! There are going to be lots to choose from.

All items required for the workshops are supplied = no additional costs! You just need to bring your favourite knitting and crochet needles, covered in shoes and a spare shirt (if your joining the felting or dyeing workshops – some of these tend to be a little messy).
