Yarn Dyeing, Brioche Knitting and Candle Making. - SOLD OUT

(This workshop is now sold out)

Join us on our last retreat for 2016 in beautiful Shaftesbury.  We will be staying at the idyllic Updown Cottage on Gold Hill (Hovis Hill) for the weekend.

It's going to be a cosy winter retreat where you will be immersed in creativity. On Saturday morning we will have a workshop on yarn dyeing methods. You will be introduced to a number of techniques and will have the opportunity to dye your own yarn. Saturday afternoon we will be learning how to knit Brioche with Renee from East London Knits.  Sunday morning we will be making candles with Amalia from The Botanical Candle Company.

We will be nestled by the fire in between workshops, enjoying freshly prepared meals and knitting and crocheting to our hearts content.  Shaftesbury is a beautiful village with many antique emporiums and coffee shops offering delicious huge scones and warming teas.  There will be ample time to explore the village in between workshops.

This is a great opportunity to relax, be inspired and socialise with other makers and creatives before the busy Christmas season begins.

Each attendee will also receive yarn and other lovely gifts.
The cost of the retreat is £450 per person
