The BTK {Basic Tool Kit} and the Workshop Supplies are basic items found at hobby, craft or hardware stores.

An official supply list will be added to the event page in early Spring 2021. 

In the meantime, here are some items you can start thinking about doing / saving for your retreat:

  1. In the fall, leaves and flowers can be collected, pressed  and frozen. 

  2. You can rust metal shapes for rust dying and including in with your eco printing bundles.

  3. Save any old watercolors, print works  and/or calligraphic works to eco print on.

  4. Fall is canning time and Pickling Alum is readily available in most grocery stores. It works as an Alum mordant and is the best way to buy alum in small quantities.

The heart of the matter is creative immersion. Process vs Product. Experience vs Event. Deep Dive vs. Surface Skimming.

What does all this mean? You are considered a valued guest; one who is interested in expanding and strengthening talents, skills and interests with others. By making and creating you get to express feelings and explore new ways of being. In a collaborative circle of belonging, the artist instructor is also giving their expertise, inspiration and guidance. All of this is happening in a secluded nurturing environment where we can all learn, share and enrich the other.


  1. JUST BE YOU:  This is a judgment free, non-competitive, just have a darn good time experience. You are perfect just the way you are. 

  2. COMFORT ZONE NUDGES: Allow yourself to expand your craft and welcome the beauty of imperfection. 

  3. DRESS 4 MESS: Bring an apron [or gloves if you’re worried about your hands] because we'll be making beautiful messes!
