Arts & Crafts

Life can be as noisy as a bus full of kids. However, at the Big Retreat, we don’t believe in noise cancelling headphones as a way to find a bit of peace.

While our Big Retreaters tell us just standing on the Old Castle Terrace taking in one of the best views in Wales sets off an instant unwind, we also have loads of creative ways to relax and re-focus at the Festival.

Our popular workshops include watercolour painting, spoon carving, jewellery making, mono printing, sketching, environmental art and more. 

And yes, it’s all included in your ticket price!
