What I'm up to.. ...

creating the beautiful Mastering Art Retreat 

The Indian Plantation style property and gardens offer a unique setting for creative pursuits - 

The studio having wrap around windows is full of natural light and wide verandahs offer

cooling spaces that look out onto beautiful gardens and large pool.

Situated walking distance to the township one way and the famous 'Old Pack house market' the

other way, it is still close to everything KeriKeri has to offer yet feels like a little oasis

amongst the large trees , birdlife and abundance of flowering shrubs - there will no doubt be

a few Impressionist themed workshops thats for sure !

 It will be a unique retreat where people can come, stay, and learn specific art skills - and

workshops will vary from life drawing to mould making and much in between.

A way to enhance a current groups' knowledge base and or to meet new people in the most

tranquil and relaxing setting whilst learning a specific art skill.

I am looking into offering accommodation options  - self contained cabns in the pipelines 

but at present its just space for camper vans and tents - 

Please get in touch if this is something you might be keen to do and I will send you updates.
