‘FANCY FACETS’ stained glass retreat w/ NEILE COOPER
August 29 - September 2, 2019 | all-inclusive*
Immerse yourself in a long weekend of stained glass creation, self-reflection and Pacific Northwest exploration with a small group of like-minded creatives! We’ll kick off this long weekend retreat with a welcome dinner and discussion about Neile’s unique methodology and the projects you’d like to pursue.
We’ll spend Friday, Saturday and Sunday sourcing inspiration from the surrounding area, exploring glass-inspired places and spaces (think SeaGlass Beach, the Museum of Glass, or a tour of ‘women-owned’ glass Studio), and working on a larger project of your choice. Small class size (5 max) will allow for ample one-on-one instruction for Neile, who will be there every step of the way to help you troubleshoot the tricky parts of a larger project. This is a great chance to make your first ‘window’ for your own glass cabin!
GROUP ARRIVAL, POP-UP SHOP & WELCOME DINNER: August 29, 2019 (Thursday)
Meet the visiting artist/instructor, discuss her work, and have an opportunity to purchase and be inspired! To be followed by a fun welcome dinner, orientation and group discussion.
STUDIO & EXPLORATION: AUGUST 30 - SEPT. 1 (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
We’ll start out the workshop on Friday morning with setup and project planning, and work through the long weekend to execute a large scale project of your choice. In between studio sessions, we’ll explore the surrounding area, adventuring out on field trips as a group, catch some live music; and will allow for individual time for hiking, resting, paddle boarding, etc.
GROUP DEPARTURE & FAREWELL BRUNCH: September 2, 2019 (Monday)
We’ll wrap up any final touches on our pieces, pack and share in a final celebratory farewell brunch together.
