This is an invitation to be generous with your creative spirit, to invest in the transformative power of giving out and seeing how it comes back differently and enriches you in the process. Bring a willingness to learn, to not know and be open.

Each day includes time solo and together, plus shared veggie/ vegan meals (evening meals will be on a cooking rota).
£600, inclusive of all food, accommodation and activities. We can offer a limited number of discounted places, please get in touch if you’d like to discuss a bursary.
Event summary

A four day/ five night Creative Retreat
facilitated by Sarah Hymas & Katherine Zeserson

Monday 6th – Saturday 11th January 2025
At Woodlands House, Giggleswick. North Yorkshire, BD24 0AX

For text-based artists – singers, writers, zine or artist book makers, embroiderers, vocal artists, and – and – with a work in progress, who would benefit from time out of the usual routine, to spend time alone and with others on a similar path. 

This space will support the building of the worlds in our work; future worlds through our work; and a temporary world over the week.

This is not a taught course. It is a holding space for exploration, sharing and connection. It is a place to be safe to concentrate on, and expand our faith in, our work, individually and collectively.
