Weekend Heart Warmer Bush Retreat
Wellington Forest Cottages Ferguson Valley
Friday 12 July to Sunday 14 July 2019
Textiles focused retreat. A time to be still, be fed, both creatively, and with delicious simple home cooked meals and lovely morning and afternoon teas with treats!
Jenni Doherty and Michelle Gauntlett invite you to spend a weekend creating textile objects in the beautiful Wellington National Park.
Jenni is offering design, draw and make a rag rug. Using any fabric, old or new, garments or rags, to make a beautiful, hard wearing art work.
Shell will be offering coiling and making of vessels from found objects in the environment. Using age old techniques to create small or large vessels that have a connection to place.
There is no need to choose yet, you can have it all!
We will be available from Friday night through to late Sunday afternoon to teach, explore and develop ideas, then to sit beside and encourage, offer tips and help as needed.
You can choose to spend the weekend getting lost in one project and seeing it grow, or one day of each and take home a basket full of joy to carry on in your own time.
The food is being made for us by Janelle Barnes @yabberupstudio, who happens to be a textile artist in her own right, but more importantly knows a thing or two about food!
