CARM Textile Art and Prayer Retreat 16 - 20 April 2018

The leaders of this retreat are Dr Romola Parish and Father Michael Campling.
Romola is a scientist, academic and lawyer by profession, but she explores and expresses her spirituality primarily through creative writing and working with textiles. She trained in traditional hand embroidery techniques at the Royal School of Needlework, but most of the rest of her skills have developed in response to the challenges of individual projects, and include applique, beadwork, quilting and lace-making as well as crewel, gold, stump and canvas work. Her work mixes media and metaphor and uses her work in small group and retreat contexts as an aid to meditation and deepening encounters with God. She is currently studying part time for a MSt in Creative Writing at the University of Oxford.

Father Michael is an Anglican Priest with a very much Parish-based ministry, and for ten years Chaplain of Winchester Diocesan Retreat and Conference House. Over the years he has had the joy of conducting many Retreats, Franciscan, Ignatian, some based on Mother Julians writings, some for specific groups such as the Mother's Union and the Creative Arts Retreat Movement.

Cost: For the retreat full board £340 for individual room £315 shared room

The location of Quiet Waters Christian Retreat House is Flixton Road, Bungay, NR35 1PD
