Seasonal Crafts

  Friday 4th to Sunday 6th December 2020

Share your pleasure of creative crafts in our peaceful and beautiful home in this 

relaxing weekend combining our practical skills with our spiritual practice. 

It does not matter whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas, the returning of the sun, or none of these, it is still good to celebrate in the dark days of winter.  What better way to prepare and show love to those close to you than by spending a whole weekend making things.  

The craft will be as diverse as making wreaths, pop up cards or knitting.  Bring your favourite craft or skill to share with us.  (Let us know in advance if you need any materials).  

A reflective session will be led by a member of the community late Saturday afternoon.

This retreat is led by members of the community.


The community is based in an old building which is homely and comfortable and has 11 acres of its own grounds. The vegetarian food provided by the community is much appreciated by visitors.

The weekend will start with supper at 6pm on Friday and end on after lunch on Sunday in time for you to catch the 2.35pm train if you need to. You would be welcome to arrive any time after 4pm on Friday afternoon.  

The cost for the retreat is on a sliding scale between £110 – £190.  “Sliding scale” means you decide what to pay based on what you think is the right and fair amount to pay and what your income is.

For further information contact the community. You can download a Booking form from the main Retreats page.

All our retreats take place at the Community. There will be free time and opportunity to join in the Community’s regular worship.
