What to Expect
This amazing craft retreat will begin on Monday 15th July 2024 when you will arrive at the venue, meet your tutor and be guided 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 selected, not only for their skill level in their craft but also, for their teaching abilities and supportive guidance.
Costs are inclusive of four nights' accommodation, freshly cooked food, expert tutoring, and use of tools.
*additional costs for materials may apply
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!
Please note: Tutors will provide specialist tools but there may be an additional charge for materials. You will receive a tools and supply list for your chosen course before the retreat.
On-site accommodation is in single, twin, 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 & twin rooms are limited and there is a surcharge for this. Be sure to select this option when purchasing your course ticket as availability cannot be guaranteed later.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided in an informal communal setting with a cafeteria-style service. Allergies and dietary requirements can be accommodated with advance notice (a dietary request form will be sent to you).
Accommodation and meals are included.
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 interests you.
Kingham Hill School is located near the village of Kingham in Oxfordshire and was founded in 1886.
