Programme

Living Yarns

3–7 February 2020 (Mon–Fri)

Bring your knitting, crochet, or any other craft and join us as we explore what it means to be part of God’s living creation. There will be time and space to listen, to learn, to sit with your crafts or join in conversations. Come prepared to be challenged, to be drawn deeper into relationship with God and to have some relaxing time creating in the presence of God. In this retreat Vittoria will be teaching a knitting skill, and Gretel will be teaching a crochet technique, details of which will be sent near the time.
