Missenden Abbey, set in lovely grounds in Great Missenden in Buckinghamshire, offers a very special combination of first-class tutors, a peaceful and beautiful setting, and an excellent programme comprising hundreds of inspiring residential courses and non-residential courses in creative crafts, art, textiles, singing, photography, cultural studies and many other subjects.  I have been tutoring there for a number of years and this year I am teaching two summer school courses in Rigid Heddle loom weaving and Feltmaking.   This is a wonderful venue for a creative holiday.
