For those wanting to find a Themed Retreat, we have plenty to choose from ...

There's no problem coming on your own or with a group of friends, all ages and proficiencies are welcomed and we have Retreats throughout the year.

As regards other Retreats, following our successful Batik'n'Birding Weeks and Printing with Birding Weeks over the last few years we were planning to run some more again in 2020 with  Marie-Thérèse King and Lucy Gell but Covid put paid to that. However, they'll be back in 2021, so if you're interested drop either them or us a line.
