Tapestry of Life

19–23 September 2022 (Mon–Fri)

This retreat combines reflections and bible studies with the opportunity to spend time unwinding with handicrafts. The retreat is aimed at anyone interested in tapestry, embroidery or handicrafts of any sort. Whether you are a beginner at stitching or an expert, come and join us as we spend time exploring the threads that make up our lives. You can unwind in the company of other crafters.
