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!
