This unique retreat will take you on a rich and colourful journey of creativity, expressing yourself in many forms -felting, woodwork, sewing and symbology. 

Gina will gently guide us in workshops, to break things down to the simplest of steps, encouraging our imagination to flow. Bring home knowledge on new ways to create, and the curiosity to play with them at home. 

"The joy of connecting your heart and head with your hands"

 

The wonderful thing is, whilst enjoying our time there is also incredible therapeutic power in the process of creation.* Creating accesses all parts of the brain and has been shown to provide regulatory benefits, a way to practice mindfulness, as well as reconnecting to self and the world around us. 

The creative workshops will be complimented by an array of movement, mindfulness practices as well as rich group connection.

*This retreat is different to our other retreats where we offer creative means of group therapy.

This retreat will focus on creativity as a point of connection within a group, while also providing therapeutic benefits as a flow on of the process of creating. 

Come home with a renewed sense of clarity and inspiration to create, along with a refreshed and energised physical body.

 

 

ABOUT GINA GEE 

My business, Ginagee Creations is a reflection of my creative journey. The forever evolving array of hand-crafted pieces started from a very young time in my life where I was drawing, sewing and crocheting. The more I created, the more I was able to learn and grow as I explored new techniques and ancient crafts.

I have not stuck to one particular idea or craft. I am constantly expanding and trying new things to make unique creations.

Combined with a deep passion for mother earth, I also source as much sustainable, local, recycled, second-hand materials as I can, so I leave less impact on this precious land. It also allows me to bring a second life and a story into my handmade treasures.

"So often I have people tell me that they are scared to start making art. "They're not creative"... but we actually all are. You don't have to be an artist to create, or the best in the world. It is a way we can express ourselves, or our imagination, and we never know what we are going to unlock."
