This coming summer it will be Sisterhood’s 3rd birthday. Sisterhood started out as a dream to bring like-minded women together, to create, support and nourish each other…. my personal dream of connection has now grown. In these past three years, Sisterhood has held four retreats and one supper, with countless creative workshops, mindful talks and experiences and a bringing together of over 200 women. Sisterhood has grown beyond that seedling of a dream in late 2014… into a beautiful tree.
Following on from my previous two blog posts on SISTERHOOD, it’s time to catch up on another instalment, this time the afternoon adventures in craft and beach-side frolics. After our amazing lunch, cooked over a fire by Elinor Hill, we all needed time to sit and learn a new skill, in the guise of carpentry and ceramics. The carpentry was lead by newly skilled in wood craft, Karen Baldry, who over the past year has been learning how to become
Time for another instalment of the SISTERHOOD weekend. You may remember in my last post, last week, I left you hanging after the amazing floral workshop with Erin. So after we had arranged, adorned and had a blissful few hours playing with British grown blooms, we headed to the warm inside and a session with Sas Petherick. I couldn’t believe it when Sas emailed me to offer a workshop for SISTERHOOD. I had heard about her amazing workshops through other
So, Sisterhood Camp 2016 was last weekend. I am still on cloud 9. Those few days spent with brilliantly creative, smart, funny women has changed me forever. No joke. I do actually feel lighter, dreamier, less stressed and more in-tune with myself, more than I have felt in a long long time. Sisterhood was a long haul in the lead up to last weekend, not only was it myself beavering away at home, but my brilliant team of women who
Four days to go! FOUR! The past few months have been leading up to this weekend, SISTERHOOD camp 2016. I am feeling a mix of excitement and exhaustion, but it’s going to be so so good! This year we are heading over to Fforest in West Wales, to their Manorafon site close to the beach. Fforest is the perfect place for SISTERHOOD, with masses of space for us all to sleep in comfortably, barns for us to use for workshops
Last Summer, SISTERHOOD was born. I have mentioned it a few times haven’t I? It’s a beautiful thing seeing talented, creative women coming together and supporting each other. Fellow SISTER and good friend Hels Martin (oh and brilliant Editor of Lionheart Magazine) recently wrote an article on ‘Networking for Creatives’ for the current issue of Mollie Makes magazine. Not only that but another SISTER and pal Xanthe Berkeley, had her amazing photographs featured too. YAY!! Hels interviewed me last month,
Decorating the dining table for our Christmas feast is just as important, if not more, than the Turkey! This year I am taking inspiration from Hannah’s styling of our SISTERHOOD winter supper. Crisp white linens and napkins. With a little added extras… Lou ArchellLou Archell, a writer, photographer, stylist and founder of Littlegreenshed. A UK lifestyle & travel blog Lou is also a busy mum of two amazing boys and the founder of Sisterhood Camp – an annual creative retreat for
Good things happen when a group of creative, clever women come together. The unbreakable bonds, the deep connection and the sharing that happens – SISTERLY vibes of love and appreciation. Back in early November our first SISTERHOOD supper was held here in Bristol, UK. I shall try to put it all into words… It all started with an idea. A mid-winter supper with a gathering of friends in an abandoned style building. Rustic, raw, with industrial touches. The Forge provided a
