Nurture & Bloom

Nurture your creativity and watch your business bloom
9-13 October, 2017, Shropshire, UK

A creative retreat for fine art wedding professionals

The retreat is an opportunity to nurture your creativity over three days (four nights). It will give you the tools you need to find inspiration outside of the world of weddings and rediscover your creative joy. Be inspired by some of the UK wedding industry's most creative and talented artisans - Kate Cullen, Tammy from Wild Bunch, Grace from Bramble & Wild and Gemma Milly.

All these skills and experiences are designed to provide you with the tools you need to create products, styled shoots and weddings that are not only beautiful and perfectly executed, but also have that spark of originality,  allowing your own style to emerge so that your work will always be fresh, new, exciting, soulful, and a true reflection of you.

  • Learn how to use creative journaling to inspire and develop your ideas using our complimentary Nurture Journals for each attendee.

  • Learn how to create a floral arrangement, or if you are a florist enjoy having the freedom to create something outside of the normal constrictions of work.

  • Experience foraging and how to identify readily available plants that can be used to adorn your home, inspire your artwork or use in the weddings you work on.

  • Learn how to make your own papers and inks inspired by nature.

  • Learn some calligraphy, or use your existing calligraphy skills, to create elements for your visual storytelling based on our retreat themes.

  • Using textiles, paints, inks, drawings and colour learn how to create physical moodboards and find your true personal style.

  • Learn how to create compelling written narratives to compliment the visual storytelling aspects of your moodboards.

  • Using the skills and approaches learnt throughout the retreat you will work together with the rest of the attendees to create a beautiful styled table for the final feast.

  • You will receive gorgeous images of the entirety of your experience for use in you portfolios after the retreat has ended. A beautiful record of your journey with us.

Numbers are strictly limited so that we can all get to know one another in the  relaxing environment of Walcot Hall in Shropshire, UK and the nearby Wild Bunch flower farm.
