Retreats

Join us in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside for our very special retreats.
Our 2022 Deco-Delicious retreat is all set to take place in March (11th – 13th) and September (23rd – 25th).
Heather and Melanie have cooked up some fabulous and sparkly Art Deco-inspired elements for you. Their exclusive new designs can be worked individually as completed jewellery, or both artists’ elements can be combined together.

The Deco-Delicious designs
Two gorgeous pieces of jewellery, inspired by the intricate and desirable designs of the Art Deco era. Heather and Melanie have a wealth of decadently Deco history to share with you as you bead these unique and innovative elements. Attendees will be provided with a list of requirements for each project, but Heather Melanie have also created Deco-Delicious kits for the projects which are available for pre-order for attendees.

Coming soon...

Heather is busy creating a delectable confection of beadiness ready for our new retreats.  Please join our mailing list if you would like advance notice of the big reveal later this year.
