The White Rabbit

Monday 29th April – Friday 3rd May 2024

Want to get away with it all and relax with some wonderful Goldwork Embroidery. Meet like-minded people on our Monday-Friday retreats with many different ones held year round so there is something for everyone. No chores, no daily routine to distract you, and the luxury of feeling looked after from dinner on your day of arrival to lunch on departure day.

We will be creating a stunning white rabbit in Goldwork and felting, this will be combined with a trip to local area with connections to Alice in Wonderland and Lewis Carroll, as well as a guest tutor for the day

You will be creating your own 3D Rabbit using needle felting which will be taught by our guest Tutor Maria Livesley. The rabbit is approximately 6-7inches tall an will have an opening at the back to hold your needles. You will then be creating his tabard all in goldwork  which is taught by our very own Sarah Rakestraw. This project is inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll and the original illustrations.

This retreat is suitable for everyone, is there a particular stitch you want to learn? we can show you how to do it. Choose your design and away you go. Our tutor is Sarah Rakestraw who has many years of experience in the world of Goldwork, even writing a book Glorious Goldwork which is available on our website.

Unfortunately on this retreat we are unable to have people working on their own designs due to the schedule for this retreat

A pack will be available to purchase, you will be able to choose the colours you want to work with, so the cost will be selection dependent.

Monday 29th April – Friday 3rd May 2024 4 nights/5 days
