Day Retreat: Carve Time for You

Give yourself some time this new year to take stock, think about your priorities, and make space for creativity in your life at our Cotswolds day retreat. Structured in three parts: stamp making, bullet journaling and socialising in beautiful surroundings, you can arrive with a head full of chaos and half-dreamt dreams, and leave with new focus about yourself and a bullet journal and personalised stamp ready for you to use with fresh purpose.

Part 1 - Rubber stamp making:

The act of carving out shapes using tools is something quite primal that serves to put us in touch with our creativity, our hands, and our desire to ‘make a mark’.

Hand-making a rubber stamp (or two) to use as a personal motif and logo will be both fun and relaxing; guided by print-maker Kate Buckingham, you will craft something new and unexpected. The process will loosen us up ahead of the self-reflection that comes about when bullet journaling.

Feel free to bring along images that inspire you. No artistic skill or drawing ability is necessary. All materials provided. You will leave with a stamp that you can use forever, to brand your future plans or to lend an authentic hand-made gesture to your letters!

Part 2 - Bullet journaling:

There is something so therapeutic about emptying your mind onto paper, and this part of the retreat is where you will learn the art of bullet journaling. Cate Hamilton is a self-confessed lifelong stationery addict, multiple business owner and mother-of-three-under-eight and has found the bullet journal method to be a sanity-saving technique that, over the last 18 months, has opened up new possibilities for creativity and helped her live more intentionally.

You don’t need to be remotely creative to participate in this therapeutic and life-changing workshop: come with a head full of lists, scattered projects and half-thought-out plans, and leave with your new bullet journal skills to make it all better.

Part 3 - socialising in a beautiful location:

A retreat needs a sanctuary of creativity. We’ll be at the home of Interior Designer Elle Kemp, AKA Ridge & Furrow. Elle will be hosting the retreat and providing the refreshments to keep our creativity flowing.

This Victorian-pigsty-turned-family-home is an inspiring location with a relaxed, homely attitude. Check it out on instagram @ridge_and_furrow, here on Facebook, or via their website www.ridgeandfurrow.co.uk

Tickets are £65 and will go on sale at 8am on Saturday 1st December. Set your alarms as there are only 10 spaces for this intimate and special retreat. It would make the perfect Christmas present, for yourself or someone you'd like to give the gift of time and space for them.
