Totally spoil yourself with this indulgent 5 day, 5 night retreat in the heart of The Shropshire Hills. Each day you will have a one to one session with Rachel, followed by a studio session to practice and explore in your own time with the studio to yourself. Then an evening by the campfire and a night glamping (in a gorgeous bell tent in the summer or our fab retro caravan in the winter). The retreat will be tailored to your experience and requirements from beginners to advanced techniques.

From my studio in the beautiful Shropshire Hills I strive to inspire students to learn new and exciting crafts. With more 18 years experience in teaching and a passion for creating it's all about the joy of helping others learn new skills. With such a variety of courses, I believe there is something for everyone whatever their experience or interests. From short taster workshops to advanced courses and artist retreats you can try new things or delve into immersive learning in your favourite craft. The studio is full of treasures to inspire you and there's always the amazing countryside as soon as you open the studio door. Come and explore the wonder of creating and leave with new skills and a passion for making.
