WORKSHOPS and How I do it

Workshops available for groups in my studio, your location or plan a weekend RETREAT in NC!

If you are a group or club and would like a session with just your group, let’s talk! Classes can be in silk painting, indigo dyeing, needle felting on silk, easy dye silk scarves, ecoprinting on silk, wool, leather or paper, create a wallhanging, screen printing on silk, designing with scraps, making pillows  and a host of additional DIY fiber (and painting) arts!

Does your group need an escape?  I am able to accommodate your group (up to 10) for weekend retreats complete with lodging, meals and instruction for a very affordable rate. See my Nature and Ecoprint Retreats section!

Private one on one workshops are available in my studio. Contact me to chat about what you’d like to learn with a 1 or 2 day private session!

 Traveling Workshops

I come to you! Please take a look at TRAVELING WORKSHOPS to see what works best for a workshop and what I teach!


Retreat Lodge

Coming soon! How would you like to join like minded participants for all inclusive weekend ecoprint and forest therapy retreats in a deep forest setting?  Stay in a beautiful lodge situated on 48 acres of natural woodland.  Wander the 4 miles of trails through various ecological zones, pause on the many benches and enjoy the quiet, reflective spaces.  Enjoy the  labyrinth for meditative walking and each evening gather around the fire pit with friends.   Our ecoprinting would be done in the beautiful art studio next to the lodge.

I am a certified practitioner of the art of forest relaxation and therapy known as “Shinrin Yoku” (which translates to “Forest Bathing.” ) and in a weekend retreat I would guide you through  a morning designed to open your senses to the wonders of Nature around you!
Plans are underway now for these Retreats!  Unlike many  ecoprint workshops labeled as intensive, our focus is on “Unplug. Slow down. Connect. Ecoprint.” Every leaf you use, you will know! You will have met the trees that gifted the leaves to you, walked through their environment, felt their presence and allowed yourself a weekend experience immersed fully in the real meaning of being one with Nature!

Complete details will be available soon with weekends planned  late spring into summer. The lodge is handicap accessible.  Pricing will be starting at $395.00 per person for a 2 night stay! Perfect for your art group! Interested? Let me know!

Workshop Policies

Most of my workshops at my studio are 1 day and full payment is due upon registration. In the event of 2 day workshops, participants can choose to pay  in full or hold your spot with a deposit with the balance due 10 days before the workshop date.

All in studio workshops include the supplies fee.

Cancellations and Refunds:

If an enrolled participant cancels a workshop 30 days or more before the class,  a 100% refund is given.

If an enrolled participant cancels a workshop 15 -25 days before the start of the class, a 50% refund is given.  Because enrollment ends 2 weeks before the workshop and supplies have been bought and schedules determined, no refunds can be given within the 2 weeks (14 days) before the class starts.   Occasionally it is possible to apply the payment for one workshop to the next similar workshop (in my studio) based on availability.


What’s coming up here and elsewhere.

More workshops  scheduled and coming in 2020! I will be adding them as soon as the participating venues go live!  I am looking at booking Ecoprint RETREAT dates right now here in NC.

I am honored to be asked to teach workshops in 2020 in Kentucky, Michigan, Tennessee, Maryland and Virginia!

If you would like to schedule a workshop (traveling or Retreat) Contact me asap for open dates. Keep checking the workshops page!
