APPLICATION FORM - CLOSING DATE: Mon 3 June, 12 noon

This residential weekend will bring a group of Highland women to the Isle of Eigg to be inspired, stimulated and moved to action. Our Workshop leaders will help you feel relaxed, creative and confident.

Saturday’s day long workshop will look at significant life events and how they have shaped you as women. You’ll be guided to explore the topic through discussion, writing and art in a relaxed, informal atmosphere where you can experiment freely - the process being more important than an end product.
