I live and work in the Brecon Beacons, where I grew up, and to where I returned after completing my arts courses in London.
I am an artist, tutor, and curator of artisan events, plus a crafts gallery in Crickhowell, The Makers Gallery.
I also work with The Big Skill CIC. as events coordinator; I plan and coordinate creative and practical workshops, enterprise projects and arts festivals in and around Wales.
I organise seasonal Artisan Markets, which aim to both showcase local makers, and raise funds for local charities.
My idea for the Creative Retreat was inspired by wanting to give you the sort of experience that I’d like for myself.
Somewhere where the air is clear and clean, fresh – a place to breathe.
Somewhere beautiful, and somewhere with the freedom to roam, both physically and mentally.
Somewhere with cosy spaces and a welcoming atmosphere, where we can kick off our shoes and wear slippers all the time – if we want to!
Somewhere with delicious food, open fires, spaces to sit and chat or stretch out.
Welcome to the Creative Retreats! I look forward to spending a creative weekend with you soon.
