Wood Sisters

Wood Sisters is a modern mystery school for women, although we also run events open to all.  In 2012 we raised money to build a Red Tent which has toured to various festivals as a sanctuary, storytelling and craft space.  This year we hope it will have a local residency and be a space for retreat, ritual and rites of passage and storytelling. To find out more about what we do, visit our website.

Hope to see you at the Winter Festival,


Sue and Sam
