Creative Arts Retreat – Embroidery & Prayer (Theme: Colours)
Friday, 16th August @ 6:00 pm - Friday, 23rd August @ 10:00 am£475 – £523
You can expect a warm welcome, space to reflect, to pray and to worship, as well as plenty of time to be creative.
We shall explore some of the colours mentioned in the Bible and their significance. Think of the rainbow and the Light of the world! Different colours can be particularly meaningful and influence us in our daily lives. Lots of ideas to make it a colourful week!
For the textile aspect of this retreat the theme offers a wide field of inspiration from both the natural world and the man-made one. From sunsets to peacocks or hot air balloons and kaleidoscopes there is plenty to excite you.
Bring your sewing machine if you wish and Janet will bring her box of sewing goodies, and we will share the laughter, the stitching and the quiet chapel – all that goes to make Prayer and Embroidery so special.
A general requirements list will be sent out nearer the dates.
