If you want to stay in luxury accommodation whilst indulging your creative side and learning from the best, then this trip is for you. We have timed this tour to combined our favourite Tasmanian accommodation with the regions most popular flower festival - don't miss out! We have included all meals in the workshop pricing except for 1 dinner so that we can enjoy a night out together.
We have 3 studio painting days as well as a day at one of the local gardens and a full day at the Tulip Festival. At night, we dine by candle light as our chefs prepare local Tasmanian fare from locally sourced produce. There are beautiful gardens to explore as well as well as plenty of nearby walks along the river to truly experience the beauty of the area before or after class.
If you are keen to come on your own, don't worry, we have many people that join us on their own. We will allocate you to a share room or if you wish to enjoy a room to yourself there are 3 non-sharing rooms available (you will need to pay a $500 supplement for a non-sharing room).
To join us you need to pay a $500 deposit via the link to the right. We will be in contact in December to collect the balance. Please note that cancellation fees apply to all Artable retreats.
We look forward to welcoming you to a wonderful creative holiday.
