Weekend Dreadlock Training Retreats

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 our 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 food and say goodbye to the world from Friday afternoon to Sunday evening.

Yes, it's the first ever Dreadlock Training (mini) Retreat!  

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 is 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.
