Join us in the garden of a beautiful southern home for a creative retreat focused on finding inspiration in nature and interpreting that inspiration into art, design, and usable goods.  

This gathering will be relaxed and refreshing as we each learn new skills from talented artists, linger over a handmade-lunch, and enjoy refreshing afternoon cocktails and wine.   Workshops in oil botanical painting, floral arranging with locally grown blooms, and natural plant dyeing. 

We will forage for greenery to use in our floral designs, then, using that same inspiration, create multi-layered botanical paintings in the afternoon sun.
