Made on Holiday is a family-run company focused on craft, artisanal, and hand-made based near Totnes in South Devon. It was set up in 2014 originally offering craft weeks in Italy before focusing more locally. Made on Holiday has now put together small group retreats in the UK for people that would love to make something with their hands whilst having a short break. A great way to slow down, be mindful and re-connect with the body, whilst meeting new people.
Made on Holiday offers a mix of textile crafts, taught by industry leading artists, in beautiful locations. "We believe in fairness, diversity, respect for ideas and creativity, training, empowerment, and play to our strengths as a team. For every booking made, we will make a donation to Fine Cell Work, a social enterprise that trains prisoners in paid, skilled, creative needlework".
Made on Holiday’s textiles retreats are set in gorgeous venues, from a rural country farm to a Grade II listed property still in the Sir Francis Drake family. You will experience wholesome local Devon food, freshly prepared: a retreat for the gourmet crafter. Each Staycreation weekend will have a different touch, with participants travelling back home with a personalised goodie bag, together with their own handmade creation, sharing moments and creating opportunities for life. All retreats are 3 days/2 nights away and prices start from £499 (T&C apply).www.madeonholiday.com
