RETREAT is a weekend escape from the city, gathering artists of all disciplines to connect, share projects in progress and try out a new craft or two. You never know what cross pollination inspiration might occur! Rather than a single workshop by one teacher, each participant is asked to conduct a hands-on class or give a talk in an area they’re well versed in, offering instruction in a totally laidback, judgement-free environment (though initial attempts might elicit a few giggles). In addtion to skill swapping, there is also plenty of free time to catch up on the outside world, tinker on an existing work or simply daydream – field trips, nature walks encouraged and a night out is included. A person needs to play, afterall! We wrap up the weekend with a joint DIY, but hopefully collaborations will continue way beyond the woods.
