Event description

Description

The Eloquent Fold are offering a creative day retreat following a success in securing a grant from Tesco's Bags of Help.

If you have been stuck in a rut creatively or would like to come away for the day and be inspired in a creative environment with like minded people then this may be for you.

Our setting is the beautiful Newton Field Centre which was once St Faith's Church. The surrounding area has range of habitats and sites within walking distance of the centre. These include semi natural grassland, woodland, freshwater habitats, farmland, a Local Wildlife Site, an Ancient Monument and the villages of Newton and Geddington and adjacent to the Field Centre is a stretch of the River Ise.

We hope participants will be inspired by the small details and the bigger picture that the surroundings have to offer. This is your day to think, dream and explore, we will be on hand to help and advise but this isn't a conventional workshop day.

- During the day you will be able to create your own sketchbook with the option to design and make your own slip cove

- You may want to work on loose sheets and assemble your book later.

- There will be plenty of opportunity to draw, paint, stitch, print etc and generally explore different techniques and mediums under your own steam.

- We hope that you will join us in a walk to help inspire you (weather permitting)

Most of all we hope that by the end of the day you will feel refreshed and revived creatively.

Places available are limited to 16 and are on a first come first served basis. So if you want to reserve your place please book your free ticket.

We know this will be a popular workshop so we will hold a reserve list once all the places are filled.

All materials will be provided on the day but you may want to bring your own basic materials like scissors, paintbrushes, apron etc

On the day you will need to bring a lunch with you. There is a small kitchen and we will provide tea, coffee, cake and snacks.

You will also want to bring walking boots or comfortable walking shoes. Even in warm weather the old stones of the building take time to warm through so bring some warm clothes and an outdoor jacket (in case it rains).

The Eloquent Fold look forward to meeting and creating with you!
