Event description
1-Day Creativity Retreat - Encaustic Painting & Hand Painted Silk Scarves (Wine and Food Included)

About this Event

We'll start our day with a welcome – having a mimosa and getting to know your fellow Adventurers as we do a few creativity exercises. You'll meet other cool people during guided workshops throughout the day where you’ll be encouraged to break out of your comfort zone and build creative skills such as colour theory and composition.

During the morning workshop, you will learn the basics of Encaustic – painting with beeswax and pigments; using a blowtorch to fuse the layers and build up your 10” x 10” unique painting.

Enjoy a light lunch, while a visiting artist will share their inspirations and creative process to get you inspired for the afternoon session.

The afternoon will include techniques used on silk – including salt and resists to create your own hand-painted 18” x 60” silk scarf.

At the end of day, celebrate your creative achievements with a glass of wine at Noodle Gallery, good food and new friends. Take home your new masterpieces and treasured memories.

Just bring yourself...all materials, light lunch, mimosa, glass of wine, non-alcoholic beverages, coffee, tea and snacks included

Skill Level: Beginner to intermediate – no experience necessary; adults only.

Size: Max 20 spaces available per day, minimum of 6 required to proceed. We reserve the right to cancel if minimum not met.

What to Wear: Be prepared to get messy! As you can imagine – these adventures are all about the fashion…not! We will get messy – that is the point. We encourage you to dig in the bottom of your closet for some old T-shirts and wear some comfortable clothes that you don’t need to worry about. As parts of Alton Mills can get a bit drafty, it is best to dress in layers. You are welcome to bring slippers if you do not want to work in shoes all day. We do have aprons available but not having to worry about your clothing is very freeing!

Restrictions: If you have any mobility or accessibility requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Accommodations: This Adventure is designed so you can drive up from the city and back in a day.

If, however, you are able to continue the Adventure and pamper yourself, we encourage you to stay at the quaint and relaxing Millcroft Inn and Spa. Enjoy personal time to contemplate your creative outlook as you walk the beautiful grounds, use the fantastic outdoor heated pool and hot tub, check out the games room or book a short spa treatment. Treat yourself to a great dinner, go hiking, horse back riding or take in other local activities in Caledon on your own.
