About the retreat
We are all born with the ability to create. This retreat allows you to rekindle that innate ability and to connect with your true self.
Start your day with a relaxing and centering yoga class, followed by a deliciously scrumptious heath breakfast. The rest of the morning will comprise of a gentle stroll into the forest to create earth art or do some plein air painting and drawing.
Lunch includes delectable salads, quiches, and more, after which we would continue painting, drawing or working with clay.
Enjoy communal meals, deep listening, singing and storytelling around the fire, music making and free dance in the evenings.
Allow Nature to nourish and heal.
No art experience necessary. Come and play!
Feedback from recent participants:
Thank you so much for a truly wonderful and inspiring art retreat. You guided the group with great wisdom and warmth. I feel that we have all been on an enriching journey, where we learned to use art as a tool to gain greater emotional and spiritual insights. Celia
Thank you so much for the most enjoyable, inspiring & creative weekend. The whole experience was a truly joyous & reflective one for me. I felt more present (something I struggle with ) & inwardly calm than I have in a long time & I believe this was due to your beautiful teachings & very open, warm & compassionate nature. Nadja
The retreat far exceeded my expectations, I loved everything we did. To be able to self-express the way we did through art was a rewarding and cleansing process which was very necessary for me! Looking back I would not have changed a thing about the weekend. Cathy
I attended an amazing weekend workshop run by Isabelle Webb ‘Art in Nature’. I have done very little art in my life and have no confidence in my abilities. Isabelle introduced us to a number of different art materials, which I really enjoyed. The emphasis was not on pretty pictures, more on drawing, sculpting and painting in the present moment. Allowing artistic expression to flow rather than focusing too much on the end product. I was pleasantly surprised by the artwork that emerged. I have produced this – Wow. Rory
