Be Inspired Just Create (and Relax) Retreat


Welcome to the excitement of a Be Inspired Retreat!

dates: Arrive Friday afternoon 3rd May, depart Sunday morning 5th May, 2019

Our retreats are like no other, we fill them with creative fun, like minded souls and space to express yourself and your creativity. This will be our third retreat, and will be a special experience in the little historic mining town of Cullinan, 40 minutes outside of Pretoria.

The venue for the Saturday workshops will be the quirky and funky Jan Harmsgat se Agterplaas, which in itself is an experience like none other. And we have three special guest teachers, one of whom is flying from Amsterdam especially to spend time with us. Atty will be teaching her unique “crochet quilting” and we will supply yarn in a goodie bag for you to experiment and play with her blocks. Atty is a wealth of knowledge and she is fun and light hearted at the same time. Her classes are relaxed but you will learn so many techniques, most important one being that needles are very seldom required with her special work away ends technique.

Krupa specialises in a dotting technique which is relaxing and therapeutic. One of the best ways to de-stress and relax is through creativity. With Krupa your inner child will come out to play when you design your own unique coaster using dots of varying sizes. So no, you do not need to be artistic, and we are all inherently creative, so this workshop will allow you to express yourself no matter your perceived skill level! Krupa’s workshops are addictive, so it is a good thing you will receive a goodie bag with the necessary items to complete a set of coasters at home.

Theresa of Trinket Treasure will show us the joy of hammering metal – which also releases stress! – to create your own unique embellished WIP bag tag. Learn the art of metal stamping and empower yourself to create items of beauty and functionality.

The cost includes:

two nights shared accommodation at the Premier Hotel & Spa in Cullinan or for those who are not wanting to share we have secured some rooms across the road at the Cullinan Diamond Lodge

Friday night two course dinner at the Hotel inclusive of a glass of wine

Saturday full day of workshops, with all three teachers, teas, and a picnic lunch at Jan Harmsgat Se Agterplaas

Saturday night meal in the town inclusive of a glass of wine

Breakfasts on both Saturday and Sunday

A goodie bag with yarn for your crochet workshop with Atty as well as other treats, kits for both the stamping and dotting workshops as well as a goodie bag from Krupa.

There will be prizes and fun times – obviously this is a BE INSPIRED retreat, and we cannot wait to spoil you and to see how the stress of your life melts away and the awe and joy that you will be surrounded by when you start creating in a space that allows for freedom of expression.

Please note that spaces are limited, and costs are based on accommodation, meals, workshop venue and teacher fees. As such, a 30% deposit will be required within 48 hours of booking, and the balance needs to be paid in full prior to the 30th April. This can be done in three more payments, 25% by 28th February, 25% by 31st March and balance 20% by 30th April. Should you cancel prior to the 31st March, you will be refunded the amount paid less 5% for admin fees. Cancellations in April up until two weeks before the retreat (to and including 19th April 2019) will be refunded 70% of the fee, as by this stage the accommodation will have to be paid in full as well as the teachers. Cancellations made between 20th and 27th April will receive 50% refund.

Any cancellations after the 27th April will not receive a refund, but will get goodie bag and workshop kits set aside for collection/courier. UNLESS YOUR SPACE CAN BE SOLD TO SOMEONE ELSE in which case you will get a full refund.

I have and always will make a plan for those who genuinely want to attend, but need to spread the payments out further. If this is you, please contact me and I will try and make a plan to suit both our cashflows.
