WEA Women in the Highlands


This residential weekend will bring a group of Highland women to the Isle of Eigg to be inspired, stimulated and moved to action. Workshop leaders will help you feel relaxed, creative and confident.

Saturday’s day long workshop will look at significant life events and how they have shaped you as women. You’ll be guided to explore the topic through discussion, writing and art in a relaxed, informal atmosphere where you can experiment freely - the process being more important than an end product.

Participants will be expected to take part in the full programme of events, including evenings, though there will be free time on Sunday to explore Eigg on your own, if you wish. Outdoor activities will be included, so dig out your warm clothes and boots or wellies.
