Retreats

If you fancy a couple of days away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then why not come along to a craft retreat. We will spend two relaxing days trying a variety of different crafts, including arm knitting a lap blanket, macrame necklace making, weaving with a lap loom and painting decorations. Come on your own or with a friend, the choice is yours. The retreat venue is the beautiful Old Walls Vineyard, located in the village of Bishopsteignton in South Devon. We will spend two relaxing days crafting, eating, drinking and chatting. The retreat is from Fri 13th Nov - Sun 15th Nov 20.

 

The retreat will be lead by me, Lyndsey. I am a qualified adult teacher and have

been running craft workshops and parties for the last 8 years. This will be our third

retreat at this fabulous venue. During the two days we will be trying the crafts of arm

knitting, macrame, weaving and Folk It painting. With numbers limited to 10 people

there will be plenty of 1-to-1 instruction, so no previous experience is required.
