Fall Retreat Banner 

Join crafting friends from far and wide for a fun creative weekend at our In-Person Crafting Retreat in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia - or - Craft in the comfort of your home from anywhere in Canada with our At-Home Retreat Box Option. Our In-person event takes place over two days, but you can decide for yourself what fits your schedule best - if you can't come and stay over Friday night, that's OK - you can just do the full day Saturday.

Loads of FUN Crafting Techniques:

We will be showing you first-hand a number of fun crafting techniques, like dry, heat and paste embossing - gold leafing - creative ways to use masks - blending brushes, daubers and sponges - playing with water and alcohol to create movement, colouring techniques and more.... Then you will use these yourself to create 12 fantastic projects.  Most tools and all the supplies are included in your event kit, and you get to keep them all and take them home so the technique crafting can continue.   

After you load in and get your table space all set up, we will begin with some light crafting fun and social get-to-know-you activities. That will be followed up with our fabulous "LUCKY HAND" card game with lots of fantastic prizes to be won! We will have Nachos and refreshment Friday evening as well.

If you're making a get-away weekend of it, you can stay overnight in multiple nearby hotels (not included in your event fee. We will include a list of reservation phone numbers and locations of the most convenient places in your confirmation email). 

We will be starting bright an early with hot beverages and the unveiling of the Main Retreat Crafting Package. We will have a full day with individual technique demos and your fully prepared crafting projects.  We will have table gifts, special treats, door prizes and prize patrol for everyone throughout the day.  We might even have another game or two as well.
