The idea for the Creative Retreat was that we'd camp in a beautiful location and each bring a creative workshop to share.

We set off for Beddgelert, staying on a Forestry Commission campsite in some of the most beautiful landscape in Snowdonia.

George brought a calligraphy workshop.

Wendy a feather dressing workshop.

Davey took us on a walk through woodland to teach us about different trees, and how to harvest them with much respect.

Finally we walked to the top of Dinas Emrys to find the location of the tower where Merlin did his prophecy about the red and white dragons fighting beneath the hills.  This seemed to round up the year, from the previous camp when we experienced Merlin.

Whilst on the top of Dinas Emrys Lesley taught us some Welsh, and Andy told us the story of the location.
