Introducing Caring Crafters

We want everyone to experience the fun of a retreat so a special fund has been set up called Caring Crafters. How does it work? Anyone can donate into the fund, and then one person per retreat will be chosen to receive a free Day Pass. You can nominate yourself, or someone you believe deserves a great day out. If funds allow, the Pass may include a workshop, or one night of accommodation.

To donate: BSB 640000 Account number 111304031
To nominate: Please request a form from the shop. (we hope to have it available online soon).


**Project** We are aiming to gradually build some bunting to decorate our retreat crafting space. Each person who attends a retreat is invited to donate one triangle to our bunting project as a lasting memento of their involvement. Triangles can be fabric, knitted, or crocheted (a great way to use up some scrap!), and must be 24cm high, with a base of 20cm. The theme for the bunting is “50 Shades of Pink” so anything with a hint of pink is welcome.

Can’t quite make the full retreat? Why not get a taste of the Retreat with a Day Pass?
Day Passes include: morning and afternoon tea, lunch, and hall hire.


1 day – $80 per person
2 days – $140 per person
3 days – $200 per person


If you choose to stay and have dinner with us, this is not included in the Day Pass, but you are welcome to dine with us at the pub at your own cost.
Need to stay the night? We have negotiated special rates with the Dartmouth Motor Inn which covers accommodation and breakfast.
