Mapleton Craft Retreat 2.0!


Calling all spinners, knitters, weavers, felters, basketmakers, papermakers and lovers of all things fibre and textile – it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for… the big reveal for the Mapleton Craft Retreat 2015!

We’ve listened to the responses from campers past and we’ve made the move back to Mapleton. It almost feels like coming home!

There are some changes this year – first, we’ve moved the dates to the last weekend in July to put a little more space between other fibre events on the calendar. Our retreat will run from Friday, July 31 to Sunday, August 2, 2015.

We have also introduced an “early bird special” for those who pay for the whole weekend by May 15, 2015.

The plan for this retreat is to open it up to a range of fibre crafts, from the familiar to the new and exciting! If you’ve never attended a retreat before because you thought it wasn’t for you, then this is the one to try!

Stay tuned for special guests, interesting workshops, and announcements about extra activities.
