Create. Unwind.
Get Inspired.

What to Expect


All year round

The island of Tenerife enjoys a sub-tropical climate and is spoilt with sunshine and warm temperatures throughout the year. You will spend a week amongst lush palm trees in the pretty, tranquil village of Chayofa in the south of the island. The craft retreats run from Saturday to Saturday.


Broad range of activities

You will experience workshops where our very own craft tutors will demonstrate an exciting range of creations in which you will be able to participate. The workshops will be tailor-made to suit all abilities, whether you are an experienced crafter or a complete beginner.


Creativity & relaxation

Crafting under the sun is a fun and enjoyable way to enhance your creativity whilst enjoying a relaxing holiday. Your days will be evenly balanced out, combining creative crafting and unwinding around the comfy surroundings of the retreat. Become part of an inspiring group, enjoy the sunshine or perhaps watching the sunset on the beach.


Comfy accommodation

We can accommodate up to six guests in 3 twin rooms. You may on request have the beds made into doubles. We will hygienically clean the bathrooms daily and you will be equipped with bathrobes, slippers, towels, hand soap, and hairdryers.


Comfortable surroundings

You will enjoy your crafting underneath the beautiful gazebo with amazing sea views. You may lay in the hammock underneath the fruit trees and relax. The retreat has fibre-optic WiFi and a wonderful comfy lounge.


Unique experience

We welcome groups of friends as well as couples and singles. Perhaps you would like to enjoy a mother/daughter experience of crafting together. Please reach out to us for details of exclusive use of the retreat and tailor-made workshops.


Crafting Experience


Upon your arrival on Saturday you will have a chance to familiarise yourself with the surroundings of the retreat. We will welcome you with canapes and drinks and we will get to know each other. Dinner will be served in the evening.



After breakfast, we will grab our sun hats and head off beachcombing! After we have collected our marine treasures, we will head back to the retreat for lunch. After lunch, we will spend the afternoon underneath the gazebo, creating our pebble art with Ria!

Today we will be taking part in two workshops. In the morning, you will meet Katarina. She will demonstrate the art of organic soap making. In addition, she will show you how to blend organic oil, including essential oils, dried flowers and herbs, into the soap.


After lunch, we will prepare for our second workshop of the day. You will meet the very talented Dragana, who will show you a fantastic way to paint onto a traditional Spanish fan!

The Silver Workshop Week and The Complete Art Week.

Both workshops are on an all-inclusive basis.

Hi, my name is Ria. I am the founder of The Tenerife Craft Retreat. I have lived on the island of Tenerife here in the Canary Islands for several years. Whilst I was attending a craft-making holiday in Europe, I had a light bulb moment, and I thought that this was something I could share from my home in Tenerife.


Having always been interested in craft and design ideas, I thought, why don’t I share this passion with other like-minded crafty people?


I have spent hours researching the great artisans who reside on the island. The idea is to offer you something different taking happy memories back home.


Feel free to browse through the pages that I have collated for you. If you like what you see, then, one day, we could be crafting together underneath the wonderful Tenerife sun!


There aren’t any rules to being crafty. Just go with the flow and you’ll be surprised at what you can create!

I have just spent an enjoyable week here at this craft retreat and all i can say is wow! I've always wanted to try my hand at crafting and, i was suprised at what i achieved. All of the workshops were very enjoyable but I particularly enjoyed the Silver Workshop. Everyone was really friendly and the surroundings are beautiful. Thankyou to Ria for putting this amazing holiday together, i shall certainly be returning in the future.

I had a wonderful week at The Tenerife Craft Retreat. From the moment i arrived, i was received with a warm welcome which continued throughout the week. Everyday i learnt something different in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The retreat was lovely as was the food and we even had our own chef! I have bought home some great memories and i feel that i can now craft with confidence. A big thankyou to Ria and her team for a truly memorable week. Just Fantastic!!
