Couples Art Making Day Retreat
This is a wonderful, restful entire day of creativity and peace, a beautiful lunch and a little wine if you like, just for the two of you! Bring someone you care about to the studio. For couples, BFF’s, Mom and Daughter Day, any two will do!
In the morning we will take our time moving into creating something beautiful and meaningful to each of you similar to the “Sanctuary Peace Work” line (https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/SanctuaryPeaceWork) by Caroline. You will begin on a large (9 x 18” or 10 X 12”) beautiful, locally crafted, hollow wooden cradle that is a full 2” deep and sanded to soft perfection. We will spend time talking about all the processes you will learn and all the materials that are at your disposal in the studio. In a relaxed step by step process we will walk through all you need to know to create a gorgeous and very personal piece of artwork to take home with you.
We’ll drink endless pots of locally crafted herbal tea while we work through the morning. At about 1:00 we’ll break for a delicious organic gourmet vegetarian lunch and a glass of BC wine if you wish.
After lunch you’ll carry on with your artwork learning multiple painting techniques. Well have a little break for something sweet and either tea or a little more wine. Then we’ll finish up by learning the process of creating a thick, high gloss coat of stunning art resin (https://www.artresin.ca) to finish your piece.
