NATURE NURTURES:
JOIN US FOR OUR SUMMER CRAVE RETREAT AND CELEBRATE NATURE AND ART

We encourage and help guide creative play. It’s a special time to escape daily bustle in a peaceful setting, surrounded by a nurturing community, beautiful nature and inspired art making. 

 

NATURAL DYES WITH SHIBORI
Turmeric + Avocado

Come paint with nature’s colors.
Dyeing slows your conscious thinking and awakens your subconscious imagination. We will experiment with the beauty of nature’s colors and textures using natural turmeric and avocado dyes.

ECO NATURE PRINTING
Eco Relief Printing with Indigo

Get creative and play with nature’s pattern making. We will be dyeing with stencils made out of live plants, using foraged flora to create unique patterns.

MINDFUL MAKING
Spirit Sticks + Wall Hangings

Learn to be in the moment, to let go of thinking and to trust your hands to be creative. We will have guided crafts sessions set up throughout the weekend to enjoy inspired making. Participants will be shown how to weave a god’s eye, craft a spirit stick and make a wall hanging with their natural dyed fabric.
