The inspiration for the retreat was my craft group and our weekends away together. The creativity and feeling of community that flowed from our weekends gave me new energy. I loved the ability to focus on creating something. I view craft as a creative meditation. A peaceful spot in our day to day hectic lives. I have moved from being a professional woman and non-crafter to being someone who loves creating things and views craft as a beneficial part of my life.
Food has always been a big part of our weekends away so I have ensured that the kitchen at Create at Warburton will enable you to cook up a storm if you want. There are also many great eateries in town to check out.

Create at Warburton has chosen not to have television reception to promote peace, creativity, and relaxation. A television screen is provided for DVD viewing only.
A combustion heater, an open fireplace and two split systems keep the retreat at the right temperature throughout the year.
