Wonderful Women of West Wales…..

You are invited to join us for as we gather together in circle to explore, connect to and celebrate the summer energies around us and within us. 

Summer brings an abundance of rich fire energy and together, through various practices of sound and energy healing, intuitive feminine dance, gentle yoga, meditative movement, poetry, self enquiry, and meditation we will call upon that energy to inspire, uplift and to energize us. 

Together we will light our inner fires and lift our spirits as the long days of summer call to our whole beings to feel alive, to be moving, and celebrating all that we’ve been, all that we are and all that we are yet to be! 

During this beautiful day retreat led by Teresa and Kerry, please know that you will be held and supported and encouraged from the heart each step of the way.

No previous experience is necessary and this circle is open to women of all ages and abilities, and you will be welcomed whole-heartedly! 

There are no levels on this re-treat day.

The invitation is to come as you are and leave feeling more of who you are!

Your hosts for the day bring a wealth of experience and knowledge and both very much lead from the heart.

Threading Memories with Sian Lester

As part of Narberth Museum’s WOWW (Women of West Wales) project, local textile artist Siân Lester is offering a two-day workshop, exploring gathered memorabilia using cloth, stitch andbotanical dyes.

You will choose a significant woman from your life as your focus for creating a unique textile art piece. You will need to bring to the space a piece of cloth such as a small tablecloth or handkerchief, perhaps owned by your woman of choice.

During the workshop we will immerse cloth in dye baths, stitch in and embellish our individual pieces. We will be adding photographic
imagery and memorabilia to thread together an artwork that visually evokes memories that reflect your woman’s personality; in turn celebrating and honour their lives.

Your remarkable female could be a family member or a friend who is living or deceased, who inspires you or has left her mark onyour memory.

We will be thinking about forgotten handiwork and the domesticity of a woman’s life; the folded,the embellished, the worn, the mended and the cared for. We will look at how objects and cloth hold memory and we will gather people and materials together to remember, stitch and share.

You will need to provide photographs or letters to be printed in advance; more detailed information given when you sign up. Other materials will be provided but please bring along your memories, stories, memorabilia and anything you’d like to infuse into your piece.

No skills or experience
necessary, but a love for reminiscing, stitch and cloth would help!

Booking is essential. 10 spaces available.

The workshop will run from 10 – 4 pm on 15th & 16th June, with a break for lunch. Please bring your own lunch.
