Description

Join us for a weekend of creative mindfulness in the foothills of the Glasshouse Mountains at the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains Ecolodge. Together, we will switch off from the everyday and get in touch with our creative side over the course of the weekend.

Our first Mindful Watercolour Retreat in 2024 will be held on 24-26 May and includes 2 nights’ accommodation in a lodge suite or converted train carriage at Glasshouse Mountains Ecolodge surrounded by beautiful forest, together with delicious vegetarian meals lovingly prepared in-house (BYO alcoholic/specialty drinks, as desired) and all art materials required to create your own original piece of art.

Upon arrival (from 3pm Friday), you are invited to wander through the grounds and connect with nature, before enjoying a communal vegetarian feast and collaborating on a large rainforest-inspired watercolour artwork in the warmth of the roaring fire.

Each morning, you will have the opportunity to join in an early morning energy flow session with gentle movement and breathing for creativity run by the beautiful Mary from Nature Connections Physiotherapy, followed by a beautiful vegetarian breakfast overlooking the forest.

We will then undertake a self-guided walk in the forest to sketch, take photos and gather inspiration to begin our A4 sized rainforest-inspired watercolour painting. We will then prepare/sketch out the composition of our paintings until lunchtime.

After we have recharged the batteries with some lunch, at 1pm we will continue to work on and complete our artwork in a 3 hour painting session. During this session, I will assist participants to resolve their paintings into a completed artwork.

There will then be some free time to freshen up before being welcomed to create nature mandalas with Mary in the late afternoon before convening for a communal dinner.

Early risers on Sunday morning are encouraged to participate in Mary’s morning energy flow session before meeting up for a later breakfast at 9am, where we will have a group sharing session with completed artworks, framed and ready to take home.

After breakfast, we will gather on the lawn for a 2hr plein air session, painting landscape views of Mt Tibrogargan and surrounds, before saying our goodbyes at midday on Sunday.
