The Guardian Newspaper, January 2019
We are delighted to have been featured in The Guardian in January 2019 as one of the best creative retreats in the UK and Europe in 2019.
Making and mending, Hampshire
A Nest of Gentle Makers is a new twice-yearly weekend retreat in Minstead in the New Forest, with a focus on gentle creativity in a relaxing environment. There are sessions with an artist and illustrator, producing drawings, collages, rubbings and prints inspired by nature; a stitching workshop, based on a Japanese patchwork technique; a guided walk in the forest; and three yoga sessions. Guests stay in heated tipis or shepherd’s huts; food is largely vegetarian and includes a barbecue and a dinner around the campfire.
• £370 full-board, 10-12 May 2019 and 11-13 October 2019, anestofgentlemakers.co.uk
