The "Weaving Magic" retreat is one-of-a-kind, healing and weaving adventure, in a breathtaking nature reserve in the English Countryside.



This Summer we offer you the nature immersion, creative and healing experience of a lifetime. Learn the skills of healing the body alongside a creative masterclass in rope craft.

This retreat has two main focuses - a) heal and vitalise the body, mind and spirit, and b) teach the net weaving skills.

However there is much more to the schedule, to ensure you leave with a sense of achievement, fulfilment, community and growth.
