Recipe for the perfect midwinter retreat:
Choose a beautiful location
Select fab people to spend it with, remembering social inclusion is the new buzz word [participants should include representatives of the following : single mothers, regional citizens, today's yoof, ethnic minorities, redheads, recovering children of hippies, the Welsh etc]
Watch them make amazing things
Get up early enough to marvel at the light
(yep, definitely choose a long weekend)
laugh a lot, talk, listen, eat, sew, listen to various peoples' music collections, knit, fall over, swear, take photos.
(Other folks' reports here and there and here too and more to be added as they blog 'em) This one just in!
