WELCOME TO HIBISCUS NEEDLEWORK & CREATIVE DESIGN RETREAT

Monday April 9th to April 13th 2018 

A five-day creative retreat held at the colonial majestic city of San Miguel de Allende. Take time to slow down, nourish your creativity, connect with new friends, and make wonderful things with your hands in this cozy and inspiring 16th century town. This retreat offers modern, creative workshops taught by talented artists, locally-sourced healthy meals, evening programs centered around living a creative life, personal growth and well-being, plus the chance to connect with fellow creatives in an intimate setting. A nourishing escape designed to foster self-care and creativity for makers of all kinds.
 
I believe that everyone has a creative soul and that when we take time to make something with our hands, we connect with ourselves and others in the most meaningful ways. To celebrate and share our passion, we will be hosting our first textile and needlework retreat in one of the most inspiring places in the world, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, the perfect place to nurture your creative spirit.
 
During this 5 days retreat you will work hand on hand with a small group of friends and learn from the most creative and truly genuine artisan I know who love to share their talents.
 
It would be our pleasure and honor to have you join us! 
(More activities will be added to the schedule as we confirm artisans participation)
