Stitching nature

JOIN US in Gloucester to expand your vision of the material world.

WE'LL WALK IN THE WOODS AND ON THE BEACH in search of inspiration. Back in the studio, you'll print, stitch, sculpt and paint to create unique abstractions using the ocean setting and the woods around us as your muse.

MORNINGS include instruction on one or more techniques.

AFTERNOONS will be about independent study on personal projects with individual guidance to define your visions and make
it happen.

ENGAGE WITH OTHER MAKERS in the transformative art making experience of this 5-day retreat. Our spacious studio, the Lanesville Community Center, is within walking distance of shady hiking trails at nearby Dogtown and lovely New England beaches.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN NATURE, ART AND COMMUNITY. We'll learn from each other while nurturing our creative souls and enhancing our connection with the environment.

When you are not at the studio, take off to enjoy the beauty of Gloucester, Rocky Neck and the surrounding areas.
Join us and be inspired!

Materials are included. Plus each artist has a full 8-foot table (more if necessary) on which to work. Class size is limited to optimize individualized attention. All levels of experience welcome.

Lodging: Participants will make their own arrangements for housing. There are many lovely B&B's as well as very affordable weekly rentals within walking distance of the studio in Lanesville, MA.
