Okay I’ll avoid the C word !

Okay I’ll avoid the C word as we are not quite into December yet! But what about the W word ! W Word being workshop and wreath, or as some of you would say wreath workshops but we like to put the word retreat in there as well ! We use retreat as it is a step away from the December mayhem and it really is a treat for you ! A treat to join in the fun and have a go at making something from scratch that is uniquely yours !


All the guidance you could want is on hand  from Mel & Penny for the wreath  workshops and guidance from Laura from #hawthornandhoe for the festive arrangement workshop.The one I am excited about with guidance from myself (Paul) and Jo from Sew Creative is our Festive Creations with wood and textiles morning.!

We all had great fun last year not only making and creating but enjoying a relaxing time chatting sipping Hot Glogg by the fire pit and of course Mels home cooking. This year we are having 2 morning wreath workshops and one evening, which we think will be rather magical in the barn, with twinkling lights, smell of pine from the Christmas tree, the scent of orange infused with cloves, and the fragrance of fruity spice in the hot Glogg .Have a look at link for your booking info.


We hope you can make one of the Retreat workshops however there is always the option to gift one of our gift vouchers as an early treat for some lucky person! 


As regular visitors to the Pop-up will know we are coming up to the last of the year ! Sad but true 22nd 23rd & 24th of November is the last of 2019 ☹️. However it’s been a lovely year in the Pop-up, getting to know regulars, meeting new and admiring the means of transport you have been using to get here.



We’ve been continually raising funds and awareness for young minds uk. Holiday cottage also bed & breakfast is ever popular but more about that in the next shout out.

Hope to see you at one of our workshops or our last Pop-up of the year! Catch up shortly all the best The Lone Barn team .
