Jo March 2019
If you're undecided ladies, I can honestly say my weekend in the Wildwood was one of the best ever. Learning, laughing and connecting in a welcoming, supportive, non-judgmental and loving atmosphere. You can't go wrong! And PS... the food was great!
Includes all meals, materials, tools, workshops. Just bring yourself!

Whether you are just starting your craft journey or an expert, coming to our retreat is one of the best things you can do.

Our 2.5 acre rainforest property is the perfect setting for you to relax connect and create.
We have air-conditioned studio spaces, where we will make a mess, watch expert presentations or be creative using the elements surrounding us for inspiration.
Jane Milburn from textile beats https://textilebeat.com/ was our inaugural guest speaker at our first retreat in March 2019. She has inspired us to keep travelling the upcycle, recycle, reinvent, use less plastics and more natural fibres journey.
Jane taught us how to turn t-shirts into amazing jewellery.
Our retreats include a brainstorming workshop so bring your own garment and we will reinvent it collectively!
We are makers and artists, just like you! Be sure to let us know what you are working on. Send us a picture of your finished project and feedback on how the materials worked for you. Your work could be in our next gallery show or you could be presenting at the next retreat! We want to create a sense of family of creatives.
