A Creative Day Retreat

Lamberts Yard, Leeds / 12th January 2019 / 10.30am - 5pm

Time and again, I have found that getting together with other women, sharing my concerns, dreams and struggles, and taking time to do something creative with my hands that keeps me in the moment, are all rejuvenating, replenishing experiences.

So, I wanted to bring all of those things together in one day, right in the heart of Leeds, the city I love, so we can share it together.

This is an opportunity to start 2019 on a positive note, setting yourself big goals and a plan to get there, connecting with like-minded women who can support you and taking some time for creative play, all in the beautiful setting of Lamberts Yard, and with a happy hour to finish the day off nicely.

Take some time for yourself after the hectic festive period and help get the year off on the right note. Give yourself some space, and the opportunity to connect and create in a friendly, supportive environment.

Whether you have had an incredible 2018 and want to replicate that success, or feel that you need to make some changes so that 2019 can whoop 2018’s ass, this is for you.
