Itinerary

  • Arrive at Moor Hall at 9.30am for 10am start.
  • Our first project is totally on trend: a macrame wall shelf. It's so satisfying to construct and your cute little hanging shelf will make a great gift...if you can bear to part with it!
  • Depending on timing, we may start the mystery project before lunch.
  • A hot and cold buffet lunch served between 1pm and 2pm.
  • The afternoon is all about jesmonite hand casting. We'll be making stylish home accessories, from tealight holders to coasters and jewellery dishes. Currently seen everywhere from high-end boutiques to Habitat, the gorgeous finish is created by incorporating flecks of colour into a material called jesmonite.
  • A three course dinner will be served in a private area, following which you can relax in the bar or enjoy the hotel's leisure facilities.
  • Start your day with a full English breakfast or continental breakfast served between 7am and 9.30am. You'll have access to the retreat room from 9am, with time to work on the bonus project if you choose - or treat yourself to a lie in!
  • At 10am, we'll get started with using pieces of Liberty fabrics to create your own light garland. These well-loved prints add a touch of class to any project, and no sewing is required for this one. With your string of lights provided, your garland will be ready to hang up and switch on as soon as you get home.
  • We'll enjoy another buffet lunch at 12.30pm
  • Your afternoon will be focused on printing, with a difference. You'll learn how to add some subtle 'bling' to a variety of projects, both paper and textile with metalic foils. We'll have plenty of inspiration on hand should you prefer to follow our lead. This fun technique is a great way to enhance your handmade projects in the future.
  • Your retreat will draw to a close at 4pm
    Please note these details are subject to variation, but they do give you a good idea of what to expect.
