We’ve had designs in our mind for a while about launching some luxury, limited edition, exclusive, extended private workshops and day retreats… something that offers a welcome escape from the every day pressure and the chaos of our fast paced digital led lives – and this summer 2018 our ideas are being put into action.
Our new series of mindfulness day retreats are the ultimate way to relax, restore, unwind and connect with your inner creative as you soak up the surrounds of hand picked venues throughout the South West, and we partner our modern calligraphy workshops with some inspiring regional masters of their craft.
We launch our day retreats on Sunday 22nd July in North Cornish shores – within the tranquil 800 year old private walls of Pengenna Manor, nestled in 300 acres of beautiful countryside – sounds like heaven, right?
Each retreat will be a feast for the soul and the senses through carefully selected spaces, light, scent, movement, creativity, calm, nourishment and above all a great vibe.
We’ll also offer bespoke day retreats for luxe hens, corporates, and other private groups – tailoring the experience, whilst retaining the unique qualities and ethos of the ticketed events.
Calligraphy isn’t just a beautiful art form, it’s a way of writing mindfully whilst creating something stunning at the same time. Our day retreats will feature a couple of carefree hours doing just that.
By the end of your calligraphy session, you will be able to recreate a favourite quote, short reading, song lyrics, vows, or your own chosen words beautifully, with great confidence and have a gorgeous keepsake to take away with you.
On the subject of takeaways – have we mentioned that day retreat guests will be gifted their own personal ‘mindfulness kit’ – aka our pretty awesome goody bags – which includes a modern calligraphy starter kit, and lots of other lovely things.
