  • Relaxed retreat at The Woodlands, 9th to 11th March 2018

    Birds of a Feather are delighted to announce that our first retreat in 2018 will be held at the fabulous Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall, ideally located just a few minutes from junction 20 of the M1.

    We have decided to run this event as a ‘relaxed’ retreat. Classes and a retreat kit will be available to purchase, however there will be no formal structure to the weekend as we felt that you wouldn’t want to miss out on exploring this amazing venue, with its beautiful grounds and ‘get away from it all’ feel.

    With plenty of fun and laughter over the weekend and an abundance of ‘birds’ you’re guaranteed to have a fabulous time with many like minded, happy crafters!

    And some might say better still, leave the weekend feeling renewed and revitalised…
