Workshops and Policies

If you are a group or club and would like a session with just your group, let’s talk! Classes can be in ecoprinting on silk, wool, leather or paper,  in a number of techniques, hand painting silk, indigo dyeing, needle felting on silk, easy dye silk scarves,  create a wallhanging, screen printing on silk, designing with scraps, making pillows  and a host of additional DIY fiber (and painting) arts!

Does your group need an escape?  I am able to accommodate your group (up to 10) for weekend retreats complete with lodging, meals and instruction for a very affordable rate. See my Nature and Ecoprint Retreats section!

PRIVATE WORKSHOPS: Private one on one workshops are available in my studio. Contact me to chat about what you’d like to learn with a 1 or 2 day private session!

Traveling Workshops: I come to you! Please take a look at TRAVELING WORKSHOPS to see what works best for a workshop and what I teach!

UNIQUE ECOPRINT RETREATS!

Relax, Renew and Create!

Join me and other Nature minded individuals in a weekend Retreat designed to Renew, Restore, Relax  and Create!

Stay in a beautiful lodge situated on 53 acres of natural woodland.  Wander the 4 miles of trails through various ecological zones, pause on the many benches and enjoy the quiet, reflective spaces.  Enjoy the  labyrinth for meditative walking and each evening gather around the fire pit with friends.   Collecting our treasures from Nature, we will imprint them on Silk and Paper (Ecoprint) in the beautiful art studio next to the lodge.

I am a certified practitioner of the art of forest relaxation and therapy known as “Shinrin Yoku” (which translates to “Forest Bathing.” ) and in a weekend retreat I would guide you through  a morning designed to open your senses to the wonders of Nature around you!


Unlike many  ecoprint workshops labeled as intensive, our focus is on “Unplug. Slow down. Connect. Ecoprint.” Every leaf you use, you will know! You will have met the trees that gifted the leaves to you, walked through their environment, felt their presence and allowed yourself a weekend experience immersed fully in the real meaning of being one with Nature!

Workshop Policies and How I do it

 

Most of my workshops at my studio are 1 day and full payment is due upon registration. In the event of 2 day workshops, participants can choose to pay  in full or hold your spot with a deposit with the balance due 1 month before the workshop date.

Cancellations and Refunds:

Workshops: If an enrolled participant cancels a workshop 30 days or more before the class,  a 100% refund is given. Because enrollment ends 4 weeks before the workshop and supplies have been bought and schedules determined, no refunds can be given after that time  Occasionally it is possible to apply the payment for one workshop to the next similar workshop (in my studio only) based on availability.

Retreats: Our Retreats are held at a private location, not my studio, which means I have booked and paid for the scheduled weekend. If an enrolled participant cancels 30 days or more before the start of the Retreat, a full refund is given. If the Retreat itself is canceled, a full refund to participants will be given.  No refunds can be given within that 29 day period before the Retreat begins. 

More workshops are  scheduled and coming in 2020! You can also visit my Event page on Facebook for more information!

 

 I am  booking Ecoprint RETREAT dates right now here in NC.

I am honored to be asked to teach workshops in 2020 in Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Maryland and Virginia!
