The magic begins at our art studio on Saturday morning where you’ll get a quick tour of the space, open your goodie bag, put on your new apron (to keep!) and be immersed in our favourite mediums including resin, clay, and watercolour. We’ll keep you fed and hydrated throughout the day too. You’ll then be relaxed into a calm state with Vic from Liminal Bodyworks who will be offering foot massages during the evening and then guide you on a drumming sound journey to help you sleep.
Sunday starts with a Big breakfast complete with hot food, yogurt, granola, fruits, bagels and toast. Aimee will ignite your senses with a Pyrography session, burning a design into a wood chopping board. You will have an hour to trim your pottery and spray your wood burning boards. You’ll have a delicious lunch and have some time to relax. We'll finish the day off with Julia carving a unique design in linoleum then print it on your Seed calico tote bag and a frame.
Accommodation: We invite you to stay on site from Friday evening in the cutest teepees on our mezzanine. Stocked with fresh linens, towel and washer, and a comfortable foam single bed. BYO pillow and extra blanket if you'd like. We have 2 bathrooms on site and 1 hot shower. We have an espresso machine, 2 refrigerators and plenty of space to explore and create. If you choose to stay off site, please return by 9 so you don't miss out on the delicious food and creating!
The meals are delicious, wholesome and made with love. We support our neighbour Marni who runs her own baking business. If you have any dietary restrictions let us know! She’ll take care of you. Just add it in the food request text area when booking your ticket. Include any requirements and favourite drinks (non and alcoholic ;) so you feel right at home.
We promise it will be an unforgettable weekend! You'll go home with some beautiful creations and new friends to prove it :)
