A summer break at Halsway in which to share crafting skills, songs and stories hosted by Meg Rose.

The week presents a unique opportunity to develop your own craft projects in a supportive and convivial atmosphere, working with our hands whilst exploring related aspects of folk music, song and story telling. This is not an instructional course as such; presentations on various topics of interest and techniques are programmed throughout the week but the emphasis will be on learning from each other by show and tell.

Meg will be joined by Special guests TBC.

There will be free time to walk and relax with evening sessions of music, singing and story telling. We appreciate that not everyone may wish to sing solo but will hopefully feel encouraged to join in the choruses.

Who’s it For?

The week is aimed at textile crafters and artists of any level of experience – complete beginners, happy hobbyists, dedicated professional and anyone in between – who would like a few days in a lovely setting to develop their craft project, share their skills and learn from others.

You do not have to be a singer, musician or storyteller, but if you are please bring your instruments, songs and stories to share – anything craft-related especially well received!

We would also like to make it absolutely clear that, while many of these crafts are associated with women and women’s work, ALL are welcome!
