FAQ

I am thinking of coming alone, will I be the only one without a friend?

Many retreat and workshop attendees come along alone, and initially feel like this, but they needn't worry. We are a very friendly bunch and encourage people to connect and make friends immediately.  

I'm not working as a social influencer, nor am i particularly creative, are these retreats still for me?

Yes!  Sisterhood is for all women of all ages and all walks of life. We try to make the workshops accessible to all, and we are not expecting anyone to be masters at them.  Just come with an open mind and a willingness to learn.

WHO COMES TO RETREATS? can i bring my children / dog?

All women from all walks of life, all nationalities, and all ages are welcome. I am afraid that no babies or children can attend our retreats and workshops.  We feel our events are a chance for the attendees to switch off from their daily lives, The 'sisters' who have attended our previous retreats and workshops have been diverse in their age, nationality and creativity - and this makes each one unique and special. Please note that no dogs can be bought to our retreats as we can't guarantee that our guests won't have allergies.

CAN I COME ON A RETREAT / workshop AS A HELPER in return for a free place? 

We already have a core team of helpers, and as such we don't usually need any further help. That said, we are always looking for workshop leaders, so if you have a creative workshop idea or a talk you think would be suitable for us, please do get in touch via our contact page.

WHAT ARE THE EVENT DATES FOR THE COMING YEAR? 

We are in the planning stages of 2017 and beyond. You can find details of these on our 'future events' page. If you'd like to be the first to hear of our new events, you can sign up to our mailing list.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

At every event all expenses are paid in advance except for travel expenses and alcohol (apart from wine at supper). While you're with us every meal, activity, and accommodation is taken care of. If any additional costs are needed, then these will be detailed on the ticket purchasing page.

Will I be able to find someone to share a lift with to the event?

Prior to the retreat there will be a chance to get to know your fellow 'sisters' by accessing a private Facebook group.  This group is there for you to arrange travel, chat about your work and lives and to make friends before meeting.  We have found this invaluable in the past and the previous retreat attendees still use these groups to connect and chat, it is a wonderful community.

I HAVE A DIETARY RESTRICTION. WILL THERE BE SOMETHING FOR ME TO EAT? 

Yes.  We can cater for most dietary needs.  Vegan, vegetarian, gluten and dairy free. Please do get in touch with us if you have any queries.

DO YOU ACCEPT CANCELLATIONS OR OFFER REFUNDS IN ANY EVENT? 

Due to the involved logistics, we have a strict no refund policy regardless of circumstance. If you do need to cancel we will try to find you a replacement for your spot via our social platforms and waiting list, if we do find you a replacement we will refund you in full minus a service charge of £150. We strongly encourage you to have travel insurance to cover the retreat.
