Description

Intro text:
Engage your imagination, develop an appreciation for handcrafted woodwork and be immersed in the meditative process of building and creating with your hands. Taking you far away from the tech-driven informational world, this therapeutic experience gives you to the opportunity to slow down and find inspiration in the beauty of Mother Nature.

Led by Arnt Arntzen and assisted by his wife, Valerie Arntzen, this experiences reconnects you with traditional ways of building and creating.

For over 30 years, Arnt has built inspired sculptures and furniture from found metal and wood pieces, many of which were sourced straight from his wild west coast surroundings. Val, a collage and photography artist represented worldwide, shares Arnt’s fascination with recycled materials, and loves to bring to life unique stories through hands-on creation.

In this immersive 3-day (4-night) experience, you will be collaborating with the rest of the group to build from scratch a beautiful meditation and lake-viewing bench.

Giving you the opportunity to collect and use natural materials from your surroundings, this experience invites you to explore the corners of your imagination and find potential in hidden places.

Engage in traditional ways to create and feel the powerful flow of meditative and therapeutic energy that emerges from building with your hands.

Leave with an understanding of the intricacies involved in putting together handmade furniture, as taught to you by masters in the field.
