Winter Retreats


Welcome to the winter retreats at Red Clay. Our winter retreats are weekend-long retreats in varying artistic fields; drawing, music, other sound, stained glass and sometimes mixes between those fields. The retreats are intensive skill sharing sessions in which the participants work en practice together, as well as co-creating the meals. The accommodation in the winter is in the cosy main (solar) house in loft spaces and bunks on the sprawling property in rural Nova Scotia. 

The aim of the retreats is to build both individual practice and a sense of connection, community and friendship within each discipline. For each retreat, a small fee is charged to help with upkeep of the facility and basic supplies.
