Creativity Inspired Retreat Days


Led by Gabrielle Radiguet

Saturday 23rd July

9.45am -4pm

Guest House, Turvey Monastery, Turvey Beds MK43 8DH

Gabrielle is a painter and potter who uses the pottery studio at Turvey Monastery from time to time.

In response to the turmoil and war in Ukraine Gaby has asked to lead a Creativity Retreat to guide us to each make a ‘Bird of Peace’ using clay. Natural found objects including seeds, grasses and flowers may be used to imprint on the clay to decorate the surface of the bird.

All the clay and tools will be supplied and the finished piece will be fired to be collected at a later date. Please wear comfortable clothing you don’t mind getting messy or bring an apron. If you have a rolling pin and a scalpel that would be useful to bring but don’t worry if you haven’t as we can share the tools we have.

There are 10 places available so please book early to ensure your place

Cost is £48 for the day includes clay, tools, firing your piece, vegetarian lunch, tea and coffee all day.
