This retreat is for people who are interested in eco printing.

Develop a sense of community among eco printers

Have fun together in a creative environment
All experience levels are welcome. For those new to eco printing we will offer an introductory workshop (for an additional fee) on Wednesday. Experienced printers can work at your own pace to your heart’s content. Bring your equipment and supplies, and all those projects you have been meaning to create. The schedule is designed to give you maximum flexibility.
FORMAT: We have reserved a spacious room in which to work and enjoy the company of other print artists. The room opens onto the boardwalk and beach.
Daily Gathering: We will all meet at least once a day to share our plans/activities.
Shared Printing Sessions: On Thursday, Friday and Saturday we will have communal printing sessions each day with at least 2 pots.
Individual Printing: You may print on your own with your own electric cookers (turkey roasters) on the balcony of your hotel room.
Special Interest Sessions: Possible topics include: printing with a pot of sea water, adding dye to the print pot, creating a wool felt book cover, wet cyan printing, making a simple book, embellishing prints, framing options, and exploring plant materials from the grocery store. We want your input as plans are finalized, so please let us know what you would like to volunteer to share/lead/explore/demonstrate.

A full 6-foot banquet table of workspace during studio time
