Shelley Rhodes

About The Teacher

Shelley holds a degree in Graphic Design and worked as a designer for the BBC and Granada Television before training to teach art and design. Her mixed media work combines paper, drawings, photographs and prints with painted and dyed fabric as she focuses on fragmentation, reconstruction and repair. She loves travelling, exploring and discovering new places and is particularly drawn to coastal locations. Beachcombing is her favourite way to spend time and she incorporates her precious finds with drawings, mark making, gestural writing and collage in small beautifully presented travel journals. Her work has featured in several magazines and publications. She is currently writing her own book called ‘Sketchbooks Explorations for Mixed Media and Textile Artists’ which is due to be published by Batsford in Spring 2018. She is a member of the Textile Study Group, a national exhibiting and teaching group in the UK. She teaches at venues throughout the UK and abroad as well as from her own studio on the edge of the Lake District.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
