Quilting and Textiles Retreat

30th August, 4:00 pm to 2nd September, 2:00 pm


God in the Ebb and Flow of our Lives.

Using our creativityand the medium of textiles, we will express and explore the relationship we have with God the creator throughout the ebb and flow of our lives.  The metaphor of ‘the rhythm of the seas and oceans’ will be our focus and reminder that we have an unchanging God in an ever changing world.

Guests at Launde Abbey Quilting and Textiles RetreatIn the ‘seascape’ of our lives, we explore the ebb and flow of the tides, and discover how God is involved in our shaping, polishing, and honing.

As part of the retreat there will be an opportunity to make a small seascape panel which can be joined up into a larger piece of work as a wall hanging.  You are also welcome to bring your own sewing project.  We recommend that any sewing machines used should have been PAT tested within the last three years.
