Workshops

Our workshop programme brings you a wide range of crafts to inspire your creativity. The workshops are suitable for all levels of experience – from absolute beginners to the more experienced crafter.

 

They are a great intro to a craft you may always have wanted to try or an opportunity to brush up on your existing skills.

 

This year’s programme includes festival favourites such as watercolours, embroidery and brush lettering as well as crafts new to the festival including silver clay, dried flower embroidery, sashiko and shibori. There is a selection of one and two hour workshops led by wonderful makers who will guide you through the craft process.

We hope you will leave the festival feeling inspired and with an armful of beautiful things that you have made! 

Yoga

Relax and unwind at our drop in yoga sessions!

Run by the very wonderful Kerrie Murray Dru Yoga is a beautiful, flowing form of yoga for all abilities and ages. It helps to relax, unwind and stretch out your body. It also revives tired muscles, reduces back pain and combats stress. Yoga gives your body a much-needed rest from all the ‘doing.’ In particular, it gives your mind a chance to stop, relax and find a quiet, still point in your busy world.

 

Yoga involves so much more than physical poses, practiced on a yoga mat. Yoga is a way of living the very best life you can. It is learning to accept your body, who you are and the situation you are in. But most importantly, it is learning to be kind to - and love - yourself.

 

Caring for your wellbeing has to come from within. You need to let go of expectations and embrace the present moment. Yoga gives you the tools to do this!
