Summer at The Hurst – Weekend Retreat

Stepping into the Fire of Your Creativity

Friday June 12th - Sunday June 14th 2020

The Hurst

Your Invitation

Our Summer Retreat is ideal for anyone who wants to bring their creativity into full bloom against the season’s canvas in new and fresh ways, regardless of your background, experience, or chosen discipline.

Join us over this June weekend and give yourself the opportunity to nurture your inner muse for outer expression.  Draw on the radiance of summer to free your imagination and find the courage to breathe new life into your creative ideas and potential projects.  You will leave inspired, enthused and flowering with fresh insights.

Our Retreat is an eclectic blend of reflective writing, mindfulness, creative practice, walking, music, poetry, campfires and star-gazing, with wonderful food and warm hospitality, as we make full use of The Hurst’s extraordinary gardens and are stimulated by like-minded company. A poet will join us, and 1:1 creativity coaching sessions will be offered.


Your Hosts

Elaine Patterson and Karyn Prentice from PattersonPrenticeDesigns are published authors. They are a creative partnership dedicated to hosting retreats in beautiful places across the world inspiring people to be their best creative selves.


Cost: £725

The Hurst

The Hurst is a place you can write, far away from daily distractions. The house and gardens, surrounded by the forest-covered Shropshire Hills, were the former home of playwright John Osborne.
