AndyCraft & Curious Creatives Retreat
Time & Location
This amazing craft retreat will begin on Monday 18th July when you will arrive at the venue, meet your tutor and be shown to your accommodation.
For the next three whole days you will be immersed into your chosen craft under the guidance of your tutor. Course tutors have been specifically chosen, not only for their skill level in their craft but also, for their teaching abilities and supportive guidance.
Each day will consist of two 2.5hr teaching sessions with breaks in between for tea/coffee and lunch.
In the evenings there are 'taster sessions' with other tutors that you can book on to (additional costs may apply). These sessions allow you to sample a craft you may have never tried before.
There is also a bar on site serving hot drinks, soft drinks and of course alcohol (for those that like to relax with a tipple or two). This is usually where you'll also find the tutors relaxing!
The retreat was initially started by Andrea Waters of AndyCraft Beads and her husband Ken and after several successful years of Craft Retreats they have decided to embark on their well-earned retirement plans. Their aim was always for the retreat to be a friendly, cosy and informal place to spend time away from the stresses and strains of home/work life. This ethos continues to be carried through by Sue Bouys who has been gratefully trusted by Andrea & Ken to continue their work.
On site accommodation is in single, double and small dormitory style bedrooms. Bed linen is provided. Bathrooms and toilets are shared among small groups of rooms along with common rooms and kitchen/snack rooms. You will need to bring your own towels and toiletries. Single & double rooms are limited and there is a surcharge for this. Be sure to select this option when purchasing your course ticket as availablity cannot be guaranteed later.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided in an informal communal setting with cafeteria style service. Allergies and dietary requirements can be accommodated for with advance notice (a booking form will be sent to you).
Accommodation and meals are included in the 'Residential' price booking. Limited tickets for non-residential options are available. Please email email@example.com for further information.
Also on site is a leisure facility including a 25m swimming pool and a fitness suite. Access to this is at an additional cost so be sure to add this as a ticket option if it's of interest to you.
