Take time out in the beautiful house & gardens of Epiphany House, Truro to explore a range of creative crafts with an upcycling and Christmassy theme ably led by Debbie. Suitable for all levels of ability, you will have opportunities to make a whole variety of things, and all materials will be supplied. There will also be plenty of free time for reflection and relaxation, and opportunities to join in Morning and Evening Prayer. 

Spiritual Accompaniment will also be available on request

What happens on a Creative Craft Retreat

During the day there Debbie will demonstrate various creative crafts to you and then you will be able to ‘have a go’. There will be input and help for your artwork, but also plenty of free time for reflection and for quiet. There will be opportunities throughout the retreat for spiritual accompaniment. Evenings include a time of fellowship and reflection, ending with night prayer. All materials are supplied.

Smaller than some retreat centres, Epiphany House is an historic, comfortable and peaceful house set in lovely gardens. We have seven ensuite bedrooms in our new extension, a universal access bedroom with wetroom, and five other rooms in the main house, each with a basin and close to bathroom facilities (bathrobes are provided in these rooms). We provide towels, and either hospitality trays or access to a well-stocked drinks station. Our catering team enjoy a well-deserved reputation for good food and all meals will be freshly prepared in-house.
