Weekend Dreadlock Training Retreats



Enrolments are currently closed for all courses. 

I'll update here when courses are running again, but its unlikely to be this year. 

Sorry for any inconvenience ❤️ 



The Dread Shed Dreadlocks Certificate in Loctician Training/Natural Dreadlock Making & Business Development is once again being offered as face to face, live, in-person training!

This is the first time since 2012 that TDSD training has been offered in-person!!

This training is not your average training.  You can expect a weekend of everything dread related BUT in an environment that is beautiful, fun and relaxing.  The training is retreat-style where you have only to bring yourself, your favourite snacks and say goodbye to the world from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening.


The training includes:

  • All training materials inc. training kit & notes
  • Accomodation (basic but warm 'n cosy in my home or in an onsite caravan)
  • Vegan food - simple, basic and yum
  • Comprehensive & professional training offered by The Dread Shed Dreadlocks Locticians course
  • Certification ceremony
  • Fun, laughter, community, new friendships
  • And much more

The Sunday of each weekend course doubles as a dedicated training day where past graduates are invited to join us for a day of skill refining, and to get any assistance they may need.

Please note that basic food is provided that is vegan and mostly gluten-free, but if you are strictly gluten-free or have other requirements please bring what you need.  No meat products in the training please - vegan or vegetarian food only.  Zero drug tolerance.  Outside smoking permissible.


Training Retreat cost & location:


COST: $1,450


Due to moving house and wandering about this year I won't have any weekend training in 2022. 

I will be offering them again in 2023, and don't forget that the online course is always running.



If you are interested in having a training course in your own area of Aus and can organise a group of 4 or more, please email me sam@thedreadshed.com with your location and we can get something organised.


I very much look forward to meeting you and helping you to start your new dreadlock making career at The Dread Shed Dreadlocks Training Retreats.
