 We invite you to join us for 6-10 days  to create art using a range of 2D media. Our retreat is inclusive: it is suitable for all levels of experience from the beginner to the accomplished artist. Kate, our facilitator, has lots of experience of working  with diverse groups of people and will encourage you to explore as your interest takes you.
