Join us for our 'Step Into Spring' Creative Retreat

We invite you to step into Spring, get back to nature and nurture yourself and your creativity with us at the beautiful Solitude Retreat. 

When:  3.00 pm Thursday 17th of September 2015 - 3.00 pm Sunday 20th of September 2015.
Where:  Solitude Retreat 3376 Nerang Murwillumbah Road, Natural Bridge  Qld  4211.

Join me Danie and some of the Unruly Team at this intimate, creative and spiritual venue located amongst 164 acres of beautiful rainforest in the Gold Coast Hinterland of Australia for four days and three nights of comradeship and mixed media fun.  This venue will spoil you in every sense of the word ‘Retreat’.  We will have it all to ourselves and have set a program which will allow you time to relax, create and get a little unruly too during your stay.

Suited for both the beginner to the more experienced, you will get to play with a variety of mixed media products ……learn new techniques and go home with a array of completed art projects.  We have planned a minimum of four in-depth workshops and a number of smaller group activities and projects throughout the duration of this event.

It's a wonderful opportunity to escape and come together with like minded people and make new friends.

In your free time you can take advantage of the beautiful surrounds of our venue which has a number of rainforest walks and plenty of areas for you to relax and bask in the sun.  You are pretty much guaranteed some sort of wildlife encounter too, from the native birds that come in to feed on the deck to Pademelons bounding across the path in front of you.  You may also like to take a short trip to Natural Bridge and view the glow worms.

For those of you in search of some new art supplies for your shopping convenience Julie Short from Time To Create will have a selection of products from her store available on site.
