We look forward to seeing you at our very first retreat for A Place to Create. This event has been designed to be user friendly allowing you to participate in as much or as little as you wish.

We will kick off the retreat with a relaxed Friday night crop where all are welcome.  Saturday brings 6 classes in total with the crop starting at 1pm through to midnight.  Sunday will have another 4 classes for you to choose from and cropping will start at 9.30am through till 4pm.
You can simply choose the classes you are interested in and book.  There is no limit to the number of classes you book as long as you only select one class from each time slot.
This retreat gives you the best of both worlds.  Crop to your heart’s content with the opportunity to participate in classes as you desire- you can just pop out of the crop to attend classes as necessary.
